I was stupid and didn't save 2 textmate documents I was working on. Then my computer froze and I had to restart it. Is there any way to get them back? Is there an autosave file somewhere?

No. TextMate doesn't make backups when you edit a file. Saving often is a good habit.

In TextMate 2.0 you can find recently opened/edited files in ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Session/.

This works. I was even able to find an open file that I forgot to save before I left my desk and pull it down via ssh. – krs013 Apr 6 '15 at 16:24
This also saved me! The answer on this thread is incorrect. – uniquelau Jul 21 '15 at 12:00
