TextMate for Mac

02 March 2021

Code/markup editor with many features.

What is TextMate for Mac

TextMate is a versatile plain text editor with a unique and innovative feature set which caused it to win an Apple Design Award for Best Mac OS X Developer Tool in August 2006

A rapidly growing community have created modes for more than a hundred different "modes" including support for all major programming languages, writing prose in structured formats such as LaTeX, Markdown, Textile, etc., blogging, running SQL queries, writing screen plays, doing your budget, and much much more

Some of the features include:

  • Collapsable text blocks - fold away the code you don´t want to see
  • Recordable macros - you don´t have to write a script to automate tedious work
  • A CSS-inspired selector system which allows preferences and more to be applied to subsets of your document - you want return to do something different inside comments? or maybe you want spell checking enabled for your strings in C++, both can be done in seconds.
  • Snippets with tab-able placeholders and live transformations on the text you enter
  • Column operations - if you align your code nicely TextMate will reward you with eased editing!
  • Superb shell integration - don´t worry if you are not familiar with bash, TextMate is here to teach you about all the wonders of the OS X UNIX underpinnings!

I've been a Textmate user since 2008 when I started programming Ruby. This is my go to editor for Ruby and C++. Fast, reliable and elegant. You will have to take it from my cold hands when I die, I fcking love it!

Glad to see 2.0 released on 9/29/19. I've used this app since 2005! Later I switched mostly to Sublime Text and others, but could never quite let go of TextMate. So interesting and elegant, and now modernized (multiple cursors, etc.). It's currently free - "version 2.0 of TextMate is being developed as open source" - but that could change with 2.1, according to their website. No problem, it's worth paying for a license IMO. However I hope they'll go with donations instead of paid licenses, so people don't get mad about it moving back to proprietary software.

Still the best editor on macOS, sure emacs could beat it but neither can be configured to the degree they actually need and surely not in an acceptable time frame. Sublime too is a good contender but still has problems with most macOS native features like accent panels etc.

Back in 2005, when I switched from Windows to OS X, this was my editor of choice. During this time TextMate was without equal and was considered the best code editor that money could buy. Fast forward a decade or more and it's still a fantastic text editor for developers. However, it's also starting to show its age and rapidly falling behind competitors like BBEdit, Atom, and Microsoft's Visual Studio Code in terms of features. Sounds bad, right? Fear not, TexMaters, all is not lost. The editor has gone open source, new features are slowly being added, and, even considering all its current misgivings, there's still something unique and special about it that makes it super fun to use compared to the others. Would I pay $50 for it? No, not at this point in time. However, I have high hopes that one day Textmate will return to its former glory.

Edit: I forgot to mention that you can download the source for TextMate from https://github.com/textmate/textmate

Fast, with huge potential. For almost 12 years, still the best editor for Mac. Convenient bundles management, depending on needs. I love this application.
