Hi guys, I have a question for you mac users. Which text editor do you use for programming on a mac? While I was on Windows, I was using Notepad++ and It was awesome, but there is no mac version.

When it comes to me, mine is different for each language. But if asked which one I will prefer Universally, then it will be Sublime Text 3 with Material/Nexus Theme and a Good Color Scheme.

Sublime Text

Both are good and similar, but atom is getting a lot more development time behind it, and its from github.

If you are looking for a FTP editor I recommend TextWrangler:

I used to use Coda 2, it's definitely the best Mac software. However, now I think Brackets is the leading software for both Mac and WIN.

Sublime Text 3 is the best programming text editor for Win, Mac and Ubuntu. It gives a lot of easy tools to code faster that gives you a nice programming experience.

Try out the trial from here -

You should try out the opensource Brackets, I use it often for Windows, but it works on Macs too

Sublime text if you want a quick lightweight editor. I prefer an IDE though, I use phpstorm for web development and intellij idea for java and scala.

Sublime Text 2.0 doesn't allow you to compile without going to a separate window called Terminal on mac. Apparently Emacs allows you to compile without leaving emacs and opens a separate io window for the program. I used Sublime Text 2.0 for my first  program this week and was very frustrated that I didn't under stand the Terminal gcc process. See my post under C.
