What is Textpow?

Textpow is a library to parse and process Textmate bundles. Although created created for their use in a word processor, these bundles have many other uses. For example, we have used them to create a syntax highligting utility and also the markup rendering engine used to render this documentation.



If you have rubygems installation is straightforward by typing (as root if needed):

gem install -r textpow --include-dependencies

The current version of Textpow (0.9.0) is able to parse syntax (tmLanguage, tmSyntax) and theme (tmTheme) files.
