TextMate (was: Re: Emacs Anyone?)

Still using emacs? I know, it’s a wonderful OS but the editor is lacking a bit … ;) (SCNR)

… well, it’s 2017, so we have quite some options when it comes to text editors. One wonderful editor is TextMate, it is written in Cocoa and it is released under GPL V3 since version 2.0

So I am asking: how about porting https://github.com/textmate/textmate to GNUstep? This editor is way more modern than emacs and inspired for instance Sublime Text.

See an overview of features (of the old 1.x version) here: http://macromates.com/screencasts

Greetings all,

Is anyone out there using emacs 25 (or any other version) with GNUStep? I'm running into many of the same problems described in this thread:

but none of the solutions there work for me. This might be because I'm running on FreeBSD, but I would not have thought that to make a huge difference. I've also seen it mentioned that "Emacs can be built and run under GNUstep, but there are still issues to be addressed. Interested developers should contact the emacs-devel mailing list." (https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/GNUstep-Support.html#GNUstep-Support) This seems to be confirmed in several other posts related to the topic that I came across whilst searching (crashes, font problems, etc.)

Specifically, I can't get passed:

checking AppKit/AppKit.h usability... no
checking AppKit/AppKit.h presence... no
configure: error: The include files (AppKit/AppKit.h etc) that are required for a Nextstep build are missing or cannot be compiled.

The config line for FreeBSD 11 (zsh), with GNUStep installed from packages:

env CFLAGS=-DGNUSTEP ./configure --with-ns --with-gnustep-conf=/usr/local/GNUstep.conf

Given all the difficulty that seems to surround this, I thought I would confirm that it will actually work before banging my head on this one too much longer.

Anyone got it working?
