Try subethaedit
Authored by: bromhead on Oct 21, '03 08:51:06PM
SubEthaEdit looks cool and I would love to use a cocoa based app. I like the built in browser and we should see more apps use this due to "webcore". Would love if you could flick between the page and the code (like Dreamweaver). Also I don't think it can look at the file through the web server (http:// vs file://) which means it's not much good for dynamic languages, only plain html. Looks great for collaboration.

It is missing a few things I like to use in jEdit:

  • Tabs - flick between the documents I'm working on (jEdit plugin "bufferTabs")
  • File Browser - instant access to all project files
  • Auto completion - when I type an opening tag it types the closing tag (TextExtras perhaps?) (jEdit plugin "XML")
  • Its Free! www.jedit.org
Dreamweaver MX is very close but is far too slow, still inserts "stuff" into my code (haven't tried new version yet)

Project Builder is almost perfect too - fast, file browser, but lacks auto completion and very limited support for PHP. Can use single window or multiple depending on taste

Homesite on the PC is about the best editor I have used however thats not much use now is it!

I'm just about to try "TextExtras" maybe that will add code completion to Cocoa apps...

Any other ideas/comments?

How is toggling back and forth better than having both at once?

You mean, free just like SubEthaEdit? It's not missing the "free" feature at all.

Sorry I didn't mean to imply SubEthaEdit isn't free.

Sometimes it is great to have everything in one window, however other times it is good to have multiple windows. Some might like two windows if dual screening for instance. With one screen I would prefer to have 1 window allowing maximum screen real estate for my code.

Almost all apps that support tab systems also support separate windows. eg. jEdit, projectBuilder and Safari, thus letting users choose what they prefer.

foobar--

I've used 10.3 since the end of June, but mainly for testing for the ADC. Expose┬┤ look great- could you go into a bit of detail abot how you use it in this instance to help your workflow.

Thx
Craig
