BBEdit 9

My thanks to Bare Bones Software for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. Bare Bones describes BBEdit 9 as “the leading professional HTML and text editor for Mac OS X”. I describe it as “the app in which I do all my work”.

BBEdit is highly scriptable, both with AppleScript and with shell scripting languages like Perl, Python, and Ruby. It has the best search-and-replace features in the business. New in 9.0 are features like text and clipping completion, a new Projects feature that lets you group associated files — including those on SFTP servers — together in one window, and the ability to edit files directly from within disk browser and search results windows. If it were legal in Pennsylvania I’d marry BBEdit.
