"TextMate has a simple yet effective completion function on ⎋ (escape). It will complete the current word based on matches in the current document. If there are multiple matches, you can cycle through these by pressing ⎋ continuously. It is also possible to cycle backwards using ⇧⎋.
The matches are sorted by distance from the caret, meaning candidates which are closer to the caret will be suggested before candidates farther away."
This is an improvement over the current tab-completion because:
- The tab key is also used for tabbing.
- It cycles continuously.
- It is based on nearest matches.
