I use TextMate for all my Python programming, but recently it stopped highlighting my Python code. I have also tried YAML, which isn't highlighted either.

When I click Bundles, I only see the "Blogging", "HTML", "Hyperlink Helper" and "JavaScript" bundles.

I would like to just do a clean reinstall of TextMate, but I'm not sure what I should delete. Overwriting the app with a newly downloaded copy doesn't help. I've also tried deleting the application support directory, but that only contained the 3rd party bundles, so that doesn't change anything.

thx, that was the answer, if you post that as an answer, I'll accept it. – bigblind May 25 '12 at 14:32
unchecking the filters. I thought that it would only filter the list of visible bundles, and after checking the filters, I forgot I checked them. I can post it as an answer, but then you don' get the rep for it. – bigblind May 25 '12 at 16:10

See it this works. Goto Bundle Editor > Reload Bundles.

nope, it does not. But I suppose textmate automatically does this at startup, and I've restarted textmate multiple times. – bigblind May 25 '12 at 14:28
