TideText is a simple, unstyled ASCII text editor. Hold down Command-Option while dragging a file of any type onto its Dock icon, TideText will open it & display it as text.

TideText has one lonely special feature that comes in handy at times - you can save a document as a template file by choosing 'Save As Document Template' from the File menu. You'll be prompted to enter a name for the template, and it'll be saved to ~/Application Support/TideText/ with a .tmpl extension. When you choose 'New From Document Template' from the File menu, a new window will open with the template's text filled in. You can use this to set up new 'empty' more...
