View Full Version : macOS native web IDE

What is a good macOS native web IDE? I've tried Sparkle and Flux. They are both good for WYSIWYG. Is there a good macOS native code editor? I know of many cross-platform ones, but I was wondering specifically about macOS native.

Code editor? Try BBEdit.

I tried out BBEdit and ended up buying a license for it. I was impressed.

Textwrangler ( i believe its part of BBEdit ) and if you happy with using a localhost for preview on your work Sublime text to me is the best.

Textwrangler ( i believe its part of BBEdit )

Textwrangler.app, a great text editor app that I've used for years after BBEdit got to be too expensive and overkill for my needs.

But I did get an email or notice not long ago that it was being dropped and no longer supported or some such thing.

Anyway, I'm sure their site would have all the details. But a great free little brother version it is for my small use, supported or not.

There's also Atom if you really need free: https://atom.io/

I didn't realize the "upgrade" or switch from Textwrangler to BBEdit had a free version available — neat. Back to where I used to be many teats ago: ;)

We have sunsetted TextWrangler, and we encourage anyone interested in TextWrangler to download and use BBEdit instead.
Do I have to pay to use BBEdit?

No. You can use BBEdit without purchasing a license, in the same way you’ve been using TextWrangler (yes, for free). If you want BBEdit’s complete feature set (web authoring tools, and other exclusive features), you can purchase a license any time you like.

PS: Thanks for the info about Atom.app. It looks interesting for those that could use it.

Atom from Github. For basic html coding, DreamWaver is a nice option.
