I posted a complaint a while ago about BBEdit complaining about a few things. I moved onto TextMate for a few weeks, but it lacked some of the powerful BBEdit features I’ve gotten used to. Then I discovered ctags. I set up a cron on my PHP dev site to rescan my dev folder once an hour. BBEdit automatically discovered my ctags file and gave me the definitions right a right click.
- BBEdit is made by Bare Bones Software. For text editing, I’ve never used anything better. I swear by it. It’s got absolutely amazing search / replace, regex support, shell worksheets, and the fact that I can write a plugin in pretty much any language ever made is unbelievable. That being said, it’s still missing a few things that I’d love to see. I know I sound greedy, but I did pay about 180 for a text editor.
