Quicksilver triggers for projects
Quicksilver triggers are God’s gift to mankind. They let you create global triggers for any action Quicksilver can describe.
I always work on a handful of TextMate projects at the same time:
- a client project or two that I’m doing development or maintenance for
- my GTD project that keeps me organized
- Another web service we’re launching soon
- The Rails trunk for developing and testing patches to Rails, and for reading the source code (I do that a lot, I’d rather read the source than the API docs)
I recently got the idea of creating a set of Quicksilver triggers for these, so now when I’m doing coding and need to bring up the Rails source, I just hit ⌃⌥⌘R. Or when I need to check my To-Do, I hit ⌃⌥⌘G.
I find it much easier and faster than going to the recent projects menu, or keeping the project open but minimized. Just close it and open it again when I need it.
