A TextMate bundle for GPlates rotation files
Although GPlates allows to modify and edit rotation files, most of the times I actually use TextMate as preferred text editor for modifications to individual moving plate rotation sequences by hand. In addition, the upcoming GPlates rotation format change to the new
*.GROT format (see the gory details here and a technical paper on the GPGIM in general here) requires a bit more metadata to be added to individual rotations. So I have decided cumbersome hand-editing can be replaced by code snippets and command completion using TextMate's bundles and created a new GROT bundle for Textmate. The code is available on my BitBucket site as git repository for download, forking and public contributions.
Here are some screenshots of the new bundle in action with the Cobalt-Theme in Textmate:
