Auto-populate Socket Value In Rails Database.yml Using TextMate Snippet

When using mysql for rails apps, you may need a 
socket:
 value. I can never remember mine. So I added a TextMate snippet to find it. (read below for non-TextMate)

Snippet text:

socket: `mysql_config --socket`

Activation: 
socket:

Scope selector: 
source.yaml - string

<h3>Usage:</h2>

In your database.yml, go to the line 
socket: 
, delete any blank spaces til the cursor is at the colon, then press TAB and wait. The line will be updated with the socket location.


<h3>Non-TextMate</h3>

If you don't have textmate, you can get your socket location using:

mysql_config --socket

And paste the result into your database.yml
