    I think that TextWrangler is good enough. Though all depends on your preferences. I guess you'd try both TextWrangler and TextMate.

    TextWrangler for sure. But if you are feeling really bold today: vi.
     
  8. I'd like to recommend Sublime Text is best one than others.

    sublime text for sure

    recently checked out atom, seems comparable but haven't used it enough to form an opinion yet

    Get a good port of mc (midnight commander) and use its integrated editor (mcedit)

    I think TextMate is a better option as I am currently using it and it is really good.
