Personally, I love using intellij. It's much better than Eclipse for java and other such applications. Python is the same.

However, I think you probably mean a lightweight editor so I might have to adjust my response a bit. Sadly, the only free one resembling notepad++ I could find is called Komodo . However, it does have the same tabular feature like Notepad++. It does have automatic bracing which is kind of nice. It has some of the other automatic features you are used to on Notepad++ like all caps, joining lines, word replacement, tabifying, comment blocking. It does color types and recognize multiple languages.

My assessment is that it is an inferior version of notepad++ where I would say it is about 50% as good which is sadly as good as you are going to get on a Mac. It is also available on Windows so it is cross-OS if it helps.

I might be a bit late IDK.. but I love brackets. If you download it alongside with Chrome  you can use dual screens and see your code change the website's look in realtime! (Tip: Make sure you hit "save" before you quit, just because it changed on chrome browser doesn't mean the changes are permanent until you hit "save")
