Eddie is an excellent light-weight code editor, with many features you'd expect from the heavyweights like Chocolat and Sublime text. Do be aware that it is geared more toward Objective-C, Java, and the like than web languages like HTML, JS, and CSS. You will find that the syntax highlighting is fine for the latter, but there is not much in code-auto-completion, unless I'm missing it.

This is an amazingly cool text editor that's perfect for working with any and all source file types. The subtle features Eddie has above and beyond the big commercial text editor... like mixed case sub-word selection, and scrolling with a grab-hand.

Developer feedback is top-notch, and bugs are fixed quickly.

Watch out BBEdit, Eddie is moving into your turf!
