What’s new in version 3.4

Version 3.4:
New
  • JavaScript mode now supports ⌘-click for Jump-to-Definition and Jump-to-Documentation.
  • JS completion now supports JSX and more ES6.
  • If you click "Multicursor press Cmd-Shift-Esc to Cancel" in the menu bar, it shows a list of keyboard shortcuts available in multicursor mode.
Updated
  • Updated internal node.js to Node 7.4; this may cause incompatibility with some mixins (plugins) but may resolve issues with others. Mixin authors are adviced to check their mixins with this release.
  • Fixed
    • Bug: Ctrl-Opt/Alt-Click in multicursor mode removes the clicked selection; this feature had been there all the time but had not been enabled.

I agree with Nicksloan. This editor has the best balance of features and usability of all the text editors I have tried. There are some very useful features like multi-caret editing, an inline real-time HTML preview, split-code editing, etc... The $15 upgrade fee is very reasonable given the amount of attention the developers are putting into Chocolat. It is updated frequently unlike other editors that I won't mention here.

I am giving this app a 5 star review partly because I think it has the best balance of features and usability of all the text editors (many) that I have tried, and partly to counteract the fixation here on the price of the upgrade. $15 is not a high upgrade price for a $50 app, and you only have to look at the release notes to see that a lot of work goes into keeping Chocolat polished and compatible. (Why not think of it as generous that the dev allows you to use 3 for free on Mavericks?). It is true that there are a lot of free and cheaper text editors that do the job, but Chocolat seems to me to hit the sweet spot: it has all the features I need (splits, flexible folding, extensive support for languages and themes with full customisability), all contained in an interface that is beautifully designed and congenial for the occasional coder. (And that icon makes me salivate every time I see it.)

I would avoid this program because of most annoying upgrade policy I ever seen. I got this app in bundle and was very happy because it autocompleted methods in classess in Ruby - feature that still not working as should on competition but.... If you are on Maverick and upgraded to 3.x after upgrading to Yosemite you have to pay again :/ Sorry folks, I stay with Textmate and Sublime text - I think I can live without autocompletion.

Chocolat's great so far, especially for the bundle price I paid. There seems to be a bug where the Emmet plugin can't expand the boilerplate from the shortcut until I save the html and restart Chocolat. That's annoying, but not as annoying as trying to submit a bug and being directed to GitHub. I ain't tryin' to fork this s#!t people, I just wanna submit a little buglet. If you need someone to manage customer service gimme a holler ;)

Having paid for the program less than a year ago, I will surely NOT pay another $15 for a minor point upgrade. People, please do NOT support such a rip-off. I am really upset!
