Recently, I see many of my friends using Visual Studio Code cross-platform.
I definitely suggest sublime text, that's cross platform. It's nice to have all the colours, it's most ppl's favourite of those i've spoken to
vim/macVim and Sublime text
I use Sublime. Works no problem for me for two or three years. Recommended.
I am using Atom on my Macbook Pro
I am using Text Wrangler for basic text editing.
EditPadLite7 (free) works like a charm
@ Mods please delete my post wrong section
Atom: An open source text editor.
Light Table: A stylish text editor.
Bluefish: A superb cross-platform editor.
Vim: A powerful tool.
Having used Sublime Text and Atom.io for years on OS X. I came to realize that Microsoft Visual Studio Code is much more powerful than any of those, and it's free. I still keep Atom as default for previewing files because it loads up lightning fast, but if I do more than just a few edits VSCode has too much to offer, starting with its debugging tools etc.
Also Vim is a powerful tool for working with multiple files and data from the command line. It will always be the greatest text editor.
I agree with everyone above who said Textwrangler. It's probably the best free option available. Paid Application-wise though, there's an app called BBEdit (I believe it's by the same people who made Textwrangler).
If you are looking for some IDE functions like code completion Coderunner is also nice, it does cost some money tho.
I use iA Writer
Coda 2 is best editor for me.
i'm using VSCode for nearly everything related to text editing/coding, highly recommending it!
What do you think of Bluefish?
I am using free edition of TextWrangler on my MacBook Pro. it is quite good for simple text editing.
+1 for TextWrangler, I've been very happy with it over the past years, wouldn't change it for anything else.
yes, I agree, it is good.
