Textastic has been around for a while now, and it seems to have grown a community of loyal users. In a space with so much competition, that's a great feat. I'd love to hear, however, what its distinctive advantages are - compared to the various other text editors out there. I know it started as an iOS text editor, and that it can sync files with your iOS device, but is that it's only distinguishing feature? What other compelling features does it offer? - i.e., speed, ease-of-use, support for obscure languages, integration with external tools?...

Textastic works fine for me on Yosemite, does what is says for not much money BUT the biggest niggle is that the iPad app has more features which were promised for the desktop version but development seems very slow for the updates promised.

Very unstable on Yosemite + there is no easy way to extend it (with syntaxes, plugins, templates).
