Is there a TextMate Plugin that provides a simple shell window within the editor window? I use the "Missing Drawer" plugin, which replaces the built-in project drawer, so i guess that it is basically possible to build such a thing. But is something like this out there?
I guess if you didn't find it via Google you won't find it here.
I've never seen such a plugin but there's a command to open a new Terminal.app window in the directory of the active file:
I think it's part of the shell scripting bundle.
If you are actually writing something for the shell... which is presumably and presumptuously why you want the shell.. Cmd+R will RUN your command/script! Sorry if this is obvious.. but I use it all the time, and hadn't been aware of the fact until recently that this was possible.. It is also context aware, and semi-smartly "runs" whatever is "appropriate" for the type of "document" on which you are "working on".
