BBEdit Movable Type Glossary


Frustrated by Magento? Then you’ll love Commerce Bug, the must have debugging extension for anyone using Magento. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, Commerce Bug will save you and your team hours everyday. Grab a copy and start working with Magento instead of against it.

Updated for Magento 2! No Frills Magento Layout is the only Magento front end book you'll ever need. Get your copy today!

Inspired partially by this post over at, but more by the lingering sick and drop in temperature that’s kept me indoors this evening, I threw together a BBEdit Movable Type Glossary. Unzip and mount the disk image, then drag the MovableType.tpl folder to the Glossary folder in your BBEdit Support folder. It’s more or less a rehash of the TopStyle library found at sourceforge.

To get the most use out of this, add .tpl as an HTML extension in the Languages preference pane, and then use the .tpl extension for all your Movable Type templates. (See Language Sensitivity of the Glossary in the BBEdit manual for more on this).

Note: I have no idea how useful this is, as my templates are dirt simple. Leave any feedback in the comments.
