Index > Installing or Updating the bundle
The Easy Way:
GitHub recently shifted the way they handle SSL by default, so GetBundles broke, at least for me. No sweat, though, here’s a download you can just unzip and double click to have GetBundles ready to go.
Open a new document and select Bundles->GetBundles->Get Bundles from the menubar. A dialog with a list of bundles should pop up, and you can use the search field in the upper right to locate “Blogsmith Blogging”. Highlight it and click “Install”.
Now you’ve got the bundle, and any time you hear about an update, you can just open the Get Bundle window, highlight the bundle and hit Install Bundle to update. It won’t even erase your local changes. Subscribe to the update feed to keep up with changes.
The bundle itself is hosted on GitHub, where you can either download the bundle as a zip file, or use git to clone the repository into your bundles folder. If you choose this route (and have Git installed), use the following commands to manually install the bundle, and have access to the Update Blogsmith Bundle command for self-updating:
If you don’t want to update with Git, and prefer not to use GetBundles, you can download the bundle as a zip file on GitHub1 (most recent version here). Milestone releases are posted on the GitHub repository’s Downloads page. These releases represent versions that are tagged as stable.
The bundle is updated fairly frequently, more often than the list is notified. You can check for updates within GetBundles, or, if you’re a GitHub regular, follow ttscoff on GitHub for updates on new commits.
If you choose to download the zip file from the most recent sources (using the download button on the source page), when you unzip it you’ll get an oddly named folder. Rename the whole folder to blogsmith-bundle.tmbundle and it will become a bundle item you can double click to install it in TextMate. ↩
