TextMate doesn't necessarily have to modify its own Info.plist, right? By constructing a helper app, e.g. in Application Support, with a tailored Info.plist based on info collected from the active bundles, and then using lsregister to register/unregister UTI types there wouldn't be any need to even run it (example below, based on http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/175395). /Per with: ~$ alias lsregister=/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister register: ~$ lsregister /Applications/UTImportCalvin.app ~$ lsregister -dump | grep -A 4 CalvinScript description: CalvinScript flags: imported active apple-internal untrusted icon: conforms to: public.script, public.source-code tags: .calvin unregister: ~$ lsregister -u /Applications/UTImportCalvin.app ~$ lsregister -dump | grep -A 4 CalvinScript (empty output) where UTImportCalvin.app's Info.plist contains: ... <key>UTImportedTypeDeclarations</key> <array> <dict> <key>UTTypeConformsTo</key> <array> <string>public.script</string> <string>public.source-code</string> </array> <key>UTTypeDescription</key> <string>CalvinScript</string> <key>UTTypeIdentifier</key> <string>com.github.ericssonresearch.calvin-base</string> <key>UTTypeTagSpecification</key> <dict> <key>public.filename-extension</key> <array> <string>calvin</string> </array> </dict> </dict> </array> ... _______________________________________________ textmate-dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.macromates.com/listinfo/textmate-dev
