I've recently brought my YUI bundle for TextMate up to date with version 2.8.0 of the library. It provides syntax coloring and documentation look-up for all of the utilities and widgets, as well as tab completion for the most frequently used parts of the library.

There are two ways to get the bundle:

  1. Use Subversion to check out a the most recent copy
    cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
    svn co http://svn.textmate.org/trunk/Bundles/JavaScript\ YUI.tmbundle/
  2. Download the bundle, unzip it, and put it in the ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles directory

You can use the Bundle Editor within TextMate to view various code snippets and commands and become more familiar with the bundle. As with all TextMate bundles, everything can be customized; tab completion triggers, aliases (if you use Y.D instead of YAHOO.util.Dom for instance), snippets, and even the syntax coloring itself. If you want more information, there is a screencast from a few years ago that is still remarkably current.
