    Creating a TextMate Bundle to Easily Package Your WordPress ProjectTextmate bundle 400
    If you've developed a WordPress theme or plugin, then you know how fast your codebase can grow in just a short amount of time. You start off with just a few PHP, JavaScript and CSS files. Then you find yourself creating image assets and adding them to your codebase together with their Photoshop file counterparts. After a while you'll be including other third-party PHP libraries as well. Then when you're finally ready to ship your WordPress project, you'll end up having a web of multiple file types like *.php, *.css, *.scss, *.js, *.min.js, *.png and *.psd, maybe you'll have some hidden files like .DS_Store. You would eventually need to clean your codebase up before zipping them all up for your users. Normally, this just means that you duplicate your files, then scan each and every directory deleting all the unwanted files. You'd then archive your project then perhaps use a third party app to remove the hidden files. This article will teach you on how to automate this packaging process by building a TextMate Bundle that would do everything for us with a single shortcut key.
