I have been using TextMate without the SS bundle for too long now, time to reinstate it.
I checked out the code from SS SVN and installed it in my App Support/TextMate/Bundles directory (which I had to create)
When inside a .ss file, if I type "if" (then hit tab) it autofills a PHP If Statement (not a SS template if statement)
If I type "control" (then hit tab), it autofills "⌃"
Disable all bundles apart from Text, TextMate, Source and SilverStripe. Restart TextMate. Kaboom.
