The Hype Framework, developed and maintained by Joshua Davis and James Cruz, is a powerful and feature rich addition to the Processing language.
While others moved to Sublime Text, I stubbornly hung on to TextMate until TextMate 2 became stable enough to use on a daily basis and have been fairly satisfied with its progress to date. I had found I outgrew the official Processing PDE quite quickly [ with its lack of line numbers and bracket completition, etc ] and had already started developing Processing sketches in TextMate thanks to Trevor Sayre's Processing bundle. It seemed natural to embrace HYPE development too.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a TextMate bundle to add support for the HYPE Framework, so I began working on one myself. It turns out it was a great way of exploring the HYPE specific syntax and testing different chaining configurations.
