My thanks to Bare Bones Software for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote BBEdit 11, the latest version of the amazing and long-standing text editor for the Mac. Where do I even start to describe my decades-long love for this app? All DF feature-length articles? Written in BBEdit. Markdown? I created it using BBEdit. I’m more familiar with BBEdit than any other piece of software in the world. I breathe BBEdit. The time I’ve invested learning its ins and outs has paid me back in spades, productivity-wise. Whether I’m writing prose, or writing code, I never feel hampered in the least by my editor.
BBEdit is scriptable, tweakable, fast, robust, and stable. You can try it for free, and buy it for just $50 — an amazing value.
