ARCHIVED: For Mac OS X, what text editors are available?
In addition to Apple's built-in text editor, TextEdit, which you can use to edit and create text documents, a number of third-party text editors are available. Examples include:
- BBEdit and TextWrangler
- BBEdit and TextWrangler are both produced by Bare Bones Software.
Because of its broad feature set and support for plug-ins,
BBEdit is popular with web designers and other
scripters. TextWrangler has fewer features, but is free.
- Nisus Writer Express
- Developed by Nisus Software, Nisus Writer Express has a friendly user interface, multilanguage support, and support for several different file formats, including Rich Text Format (RTF), Microsoft Word, and WordPerfect. Download a free 30-day trial version or purchase Nisus Writer Express from the Nisus web site.
