A couple of good, detailed posts about BBEdit this week. Not an editor I use on a regular basis, but I’ve tried it a few times here and there. It doesn’t suck.
What I’ve discovered is that BBEdit is an incredibly complicated and simple tool. It’s a plain text editor on the surface, but it’s highly customizable (like Textmate or even Vim). I’ve been documenting some of my experience and this post describes some of what I like about BBEdit 10.
Right now, to be honest, I write all my BBEdit scripts in Python using Appscript. It’s far more easy to write and I can leverage all the Python libraries to do things.
