The Mac mini is my first Mac and I'm really impressed with OSX so far. I'm looking for a free/cheap text editor that has some of the web development tools featured in BBedit. Hope this is the right place for this post!

TextWrangler is a free download from BareBones. check the specs; it may be 'good enough' for your purposes.

TextWrangler vs. BBEdit vs. BBEdit Lite


TextWrangler is a very capable text editor. What sets BBEdit apart is its extensive professional feature set including Web authoring capabilities and software development tools. BBEdit's additional features for professionals


TextWrangler is considerably more modern and capable than BBEdit Lite. Among other things, it can open files from (and save them) to remote FTP servers, offers a significantly more powerful grep engine, supports multi-byte and non-Roman text files, can perform Find Differences on pairs of files, and can be invoked from the Unix command line.

It's a good idea to play around with Textwrangler before you'd even consider dishing out 200 dollars for BBedit. I know the reviews are always good for BBedit but at 200 dollars it’s way overpriced in my book. Hey that http://www.nvu.com looks promising!

I always use either vi or vim. But if you want a powerful GUI editor to replace BBEdit, nothing beats XEmacs!

I'll put one down for TextWrangler - I love it! I use it for my HTML tools as well, even though I would sometimes want more. It's an amazing text editor, especially the way it works through FTP editing Smile
