Bare Bones Software:
BBEdit 11.6 introduces a new demo model in which its complete
feature set is available for the first 30 days of use.
At the end of the 30-day evaluation period, BBEdit will remain
permanently functional with a revised feature set that includes
its powerful text editing capabilities but not its web authoring
tools or other exclusive features. BBEdit’s exclusive features may
be re-enabled at any time with a purchased license.
When the product is unlicensed, menu commands corresponding to
these features are badged with a “Demo” icon.
In the old days, there was BBEdit (paid) and BBEdit Lite (free). Then BBEdit Lite went away. Then we got TextWrangler, which was free.
I like this setup better. Download BBEdit for free. Use all of its features free for 30 days. After that, you still have a terrific Mac text editor, free of charge. But as soon as you need it, you can pay to enable the full feature set.
And, it should go without saying, but BBEdit is my favorite app of all time, period. Full stop. And 11.6 has a slew of cool new features, as usual.
