Editors' Review

+

BBEdit is a popular, powerful HTML and text editor with a high-performance array of tools for editing, sorting, searching, transforming, and otherwise manipulating text. Anyone with modest text-editing needs should check out BBEdit's free sister app, TextWrangler, but BBEdit is still an excellent choice for software developers (especially Web developers), with potent hand-coding features across more than 20 programming languages.

On top of basics like code folding and syntax coloring, BBEdit has flexible, multilanguage code completion, nonmodal search and replace across multiple files (so you can keep multiple document and search windows open), a smart Scratchpad that automaintains its state and contents, multiplatform Web browser preview, and--as they say, but in this case it's particularly apt--much, much more. The most recent update adds a Sleep command, support for Growl and LassoScript, and improvements to expert preferences, MobileMe syncing, Terminal integration, FTP implementation, and more.

BBEdit has certainly attracted more competition over its many years--and you can find pieces of its functionality in a variety of cheaper apps--but this app remains popular for a reason, with its rich, robust feature set and tons of options for customization.

"For text editing there is no product better than BBedit"

November 27, 2009  |  By thillson

 |  Version: BBEdit 9.3

Pros

You can open just about any file with BBedit, it will search and replace almost any character in the file. Great for any programmer who wants to format their code for easy editing. Has more options than you can imagine using.

Cons

It is a little over priced for a text editor, but they have a free product for people who do not want to pay for a text editor.

Summary

Great product well worth the money if you have a need for BBedit's features.

What's new in version 9.3
Introduces significant enhancements to the Projects feature that debuted in BBEdit 9.0, including support for adding Finder saved searches to projects, and additional flexibility in handling non-text files, including command-driven support for examining files via QuickLook when running on Mac OS X 10.6. In addition, the BBEdit 9.3 update now lets customers create language-specific ctags data files to serve as completion sources. FTP/SFTP browsers now feature a "New" button allowing for the creation of new files and folders directly within the browser window. The clippings system has been enhanced to allow combining clipping sets for easier access when working in mixed-language files. Attached menu scripts are now easier to manage from within BBEdit's own preferences. Finally, BBEdit 9.3 introduces a new command-line tool, "bbfind", which provides access to BBEdit's legendary multi-file searching from the Unix command line. In this way, BBEdit can function as part of a scripted Unix workflow, if desired.
