Google is famous for updating its logo to celebrate certain events and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they are not the only ones. TextMate, a famous text and source code editor for Mac OS X, celebrates Halloween in a rather pleasant way. First, it updates its Dock icon:

TextMate also displays a nice spider web when you create a new, empty project:

Last but not least, the output console sports a nice Halloween theme:

Did you find more easter eggs of that kind in TextMate? Or better yet, did you know of any other application that did something special today?

  1. Nice catch. Just fired up TextMate..this is pretty neat. I hope it lets you use the icon after Halloween. =)

  3. @Paul Stamatiou: when you right click > Open contents > Open Resources, you’re quite likely to find the halloween icon and other halloween images somewhere in there.

  4. At least from what I’ve installed on my notebook, TextMate was the only application that did something special for Halloween.

    OT: What app are you using that has this blue transfer-speed icon? :)

  5. @Horst: It’s a BitTorrent client called xTorrent. Only the beta is available right now but it’s really, really good.
