From the 10.5.6 update notes:

"Application startup performance has been significantly improved. Anyone who has complained that BBEdit is slow to launch is going to have to find something else to complain about."

I can more...

Good and fast text-editor. And much more.
A german translation would be great.

I've been using jEdit for years and have been wondering whether trying another editor was worth the time investment. Has anyone used/compared BBEdit (or any other editor) with jEdit? If so, would you mind sharing your thoughts/opinions?

Cheers.

It's the most powerful and hence best text editor in the entire galaxy! I have been using it for many years, mainly for HTML coding, but also to cleanup texts. No other application has such powerful search and replace options. It's capable of even much more than I need or know!

Update still fails with "unable to move BBEdit.app to trash"...however by recursively setting the app to 777 the update ran fine. Is India handling your updates? ;)

I still like BBEdit, but after many years of use I'm switching to Sublime Text. The killer features in ST for me are:
- ST shows code errors as you type (with the SublimeLinter package). This is invaluable, especially for interpreted languages.
- ST has outstanding type-to-open-a-file. Unlike BBEdit, the dialog comes up quickly and the search algorithm is excellent (it favors the first letters of camelCase and underscore-separated words and filters out useless files).
- ST also has outstanding search for symbols in a project. (BBEdit also has support for this, but it's not fully automatic and I've never used it.)
- ST has very powerful multiple selection support.

That said, BBEdit has much better support and much better diff (even with plugins ST cannot match it). And both are excellent, extensible editors with powerful project support.

I hope the BBEdit team can add some missing features and speed up the program (especially startup and building the index for Open File by Name…; with a large project that can hang the program for a long time). I fear it is really falling behind state of the art.

Try Sublimerge (http://www.sublimerge.com), it's the best diff plugin for Sublime I've ever used. Two column synchronous scrolling, full Git support, can be used to compare between versions. Just this feature shall beat BBEdit.

I used Sublimerge for awhile and I agree it is powerful and well written (also well maintained). However, I strongly prefer BBEdit's diff because it is so easy to start a diff, so intuitive to use, and because it can be used as an external diff tool.

Sublimerge does more, but I found it unintuitive to use (primarily because ST does not support GUI controls for plugins), clumsier to launch, and it cannot be used as an external diff tool (I suspect it would be very hard for any ST plugin to support that).

My preferred setup is SourceTree for viewing git history (free, powerful and easy to use), the FileDiffs package in ST for diff (easy to start a diff, can delegate to an external diff tool), and BBEdit as my external diff tool for both. Also FileMerge as SourceTree's external 3-way diff tool for resolving merge conflicts (it also does 2-way diff, but I prefer BBEdit for that).

BBEdit is a very solid and feature rich text editor but my standard editor is TextMate2. Why? It is much easier to find your way around. BBEdit is missing some important core features like an easy way to duplicate a file! Those features are the ones I need on a daily basis and makes my coding life easier. So, while BBEdit shines in many aspects it lacks some fundamental features.

Sure, there is Sublime Text 2, which is a totally new generation of text editors. But since I'm on a Mac (that's 20 years) I have always used BBEdit and BBEdit Lite (what is now the free and mighty good TextWrangler). It would be a bad advice for Bare Bones to change BBEdit radically. I like the slow and steady evolution. And BBEdit is a cosmic constant in a software universe of a lot of meteors. Like the very nice TextMate: the author cashed in a lot of money for his program (no envy, just a fact), and now programmers are waiting since ages for TextMate 2.0.

textmate 2.0 is in active development and very usable and a 64bit application as sublime text 3/2 -- both are much better then bbedit

Thank Bare Bones for this update.

BBEdit was driving me nuts because it took so long to start. It would take 5 dock icon bounces to start. Now it starts in 2 bounces.

Bare Bones still has a way to go to improve the start up time in BBEdit. In comparison, the highly bloated/featured Microsoft Word starts in ONE dock icon bounce. Why is Word faster on startup than BBEdit? It shouldn't be this way.

I went to "Check for Updates" in the menu in my BBEdit, and there were NONE! Then I remembered I'm still using BBEdit 9 (once a month vs everyday just a few years ago?) without any issues and then a few reasons I didn't switch to v.10…

I could say "come on, release a really improved, modern version of the app and I'll upgrade right away", but I think this company is out of juice and/or willpower for innovation, so I'll just keep using my v.9 and, well, won't really care if the company is still around or not with their non-products.

I can confirm seeing a massive improvement in BBEdit launch time. Now I don't forget what I wanted to write by the time it loads. Definitely worth the new(ish) lower price.
