Megazoomer Full-Screens your Mac Applications

27 August 2008 by Mathias Meyer

I recently remembered that there used to be a nice plugin for SIMBL that'll put e.g. TextMate into full screen mode. Something TextMate itself doesn't support out of the box, but that comes in handy to reduce distractions while working with it.

I looked for the plugin, and found it, but the last update was in 2006, so it very likely wouldn't run nicely on Intel Macs. Other people on MacUpdate were asking for a Universal version of the plugin, so I gave it a try.

Luckily it compiled without any problem, so I give you megazoomer as a Universal Binary. The code is practically unchanged, though I did put it up on GitHub (you'll also find the simple installation instructions there) to preserve it for the near and distant future (whatever it beholds). All credit (and copyright) belongs to Ian Henderson who wrote it in the first place.

Enjoy!
