Screencast: Using E Texteditor To Write ColdFusion Code

Lately on twitter there has been a lot of talk about using text editors like SublimeText 2 and E Texteditor for windows to write your ColdFusion code.  I've been using them a lot in the last few months so I thought I'd put together a quick screencast to show you how to use them (in this case E) to quickly produce ColdFusion code and how to customize the ColdFusion bundles for the way you code.

This particular screencast was done in E, however much of it applies to Sublime Text 2 as well, its just that its not quite as user friendly.  Where E has a nice bundle editor built in Sublime will make you browse to the "Packages folder" (you can get there through the interface by going to "Preferences -> Browse Packages" and find the tag's .tmSnippet file and manually open it in Sublime Text.

You'll defiantly want to make sure that you view this in the "full screen" mode by clicking on the icon in the lower right corner of the player.
