I downloaded Peppermint when they released their trial. A couple of weeks later, I've absolutely fallen in love with it and decided to buy it - the price is fair and compared to other popular editors in the mac market, it's definitely a bargain. So, let me share a few thoughts about this little gem of an editor: - Simple and uncluttered interface. Need tabs? Sidebar? Console? Fine. Need to focus on your code? They're gone. - Loads of supported syntaxes - and they keep adding even more - I've been using CodeRunner for testing simple scripts and it worked quite ok. But Peppermint takes this to a whole different level. It's not only easy to run any script (lots of languages supported) but you can also add your own, customize the existing ones, etc - It comes loaded with plugins that aren't even documented! (See JSLint, JSON utilities, HTML, Less->CSS, Built-in CoffeeScript compiler, Great Markdown editor/previewer, and many more - there's too much to explore, especially if you are a WebDev like me) - The API looks really powerful and neat (though I must say I prefer the JavaScript version, Coffee is a bit ehmm...) Last but not least: GREAT SUPPORT. These guys really love what they're doing and they care about their customers. I've contacted them twice for some minor issues (and I wasn't even a paying customer then) and they were more than eager to help. Bonus: I've suggested a minor addition and they've included it in the very next update! All in all, I highly recommend this editor (very surprised why it's not already in the top ten sellers on the App Store) and I can't wait to see what it is going to grow into!

Well... It's not their fault.

It's because of Peppermint's... crazy developer (me), working hard to make it as good as possible and releasing a (not-so-minor) update very often (http://osxpeppermint.com/category/blog).

Cheers! :)

well i guess it is more an intense self-promotion by you (the dev).
there are other devs doing that to keep their app on the first page of mu. i suspect also the 5 stars are achieved by similar means ;)

George Hi!

First of all, I guess you are referring to the Beta version (1.5) - right? This is by no means a final production release (1.4 is the latest stable release), so - being what it is, a beta - issues can be expected. That's why those betas are being released - and at a very fast pace - so that bugs can be tracked down and help the final app get better and better.

For now, drag'n'drop in the workspace area has not been implemented. However, it's being planned.

As for the dropping a file/folder onto the app icon and not opening it, well... this sounds rather strange. What OSX version are you using? Was it a single file or a folder? (Files are supposed to appear under the Files section in your Workspace - so in case this section is minimized, you will most likely not see the file. Folders on the other hand are to appear as separate project section in the very same Workspace).

Please, let me know and I'll see what went wrong.

In any case, I'm here to help and make Peppermint better - so your feedback is really valuable! :)

George, hi again!

What do you mean you cannot open a file?

- Drag'n'drop onto the Dock icon
- Finder -> Open With...
- Peppermint : File->Open..

Which of them are you having trouble with?

I've noticed that when opening a new file, it's not automatically selected and shown in the editor window. You have to select if from the sidebar. If the sidebar isn't visible, I also don't seen the file shown in the tabs at the top, either, so it might appear that you haven't opened anything at all.

After doing File > Open, try doing View > Sidebar. The file you just opened should shown there. Click on it to put it into the editor.

Unfortunately, what you've spotted is correct and it is in my to-fix list.

Thanks a lot for reminding me! :)

I've been using Peppermint for nearly a month now and really enjoy using it. Whats even better is the support I've received from the Developer. I had a problem late one evening, sent off an email, and got a response and resolution within an hour, he was also very friendly! I must admit I still use Sublime Text as my main editor as its been part of my workflow for a few years now, but with more use I could easily see myself replacing Sublime Text with Peppermint. Excellent price, excellent support, and great editor! Thank you, Developer!

Just noticed your message! (For some reason, I don't get any notification for new messages and these days have been quite a... craze so I'm not checking MacUpdate every day).

Thanks a lot for your kind words - I really really appreciate it.

1.5 - the real deal - is still in the making, but once it's out, with all the little things fixed and ironed out, I believe it's going to make a difference.

So, thank *you* for all the support and keep... shooting me with even more bugs / requests / anything. That's what drives Peppermint and that's what motivates me to keep on working on it! :-)

Cheers!

I've never seen a code editor for Mac packed with so many great features at such an early stage of development. Solid node and Clojure integration, great autocompletion, and a very nice UI. This one has fantastic potential.

Real fun to use and very easy to find your way around. The GUI is beautiful, not bloated at all, and the whole design seems very well thought of. I had tried v1.0 - which was good. Enough. And i've been watching its progress. After Node.js integration and having everything neatly organized in one place and not having to switch windows and open the terminal every single time I need to try out something, well, I'm sold! (the last version has a complete bash terminal, which so far seems to be working almost like the real Terminal.!) Great piece of software. Well worth the $14.

T'would be a killer if it used OpalRB.org instead of CoffeeScript.

So far it is 100% javascript/coffeescript-able. But, I'm definitely open to ideas (and to be honest, Opal is one of those that have crossed my mind!)

So, thanks a lot for the idea. I'll definitely look into it. (One more language wouldn't hurt, would it?) And if it doesn't overcomplicate things, you might see it in some of the following updates! :-)

That's fantastic @InSili.co. Opal is absolutely wonderful. We've been using it for a year and it has been a huge boost in having "one language to rule them all." From the server to the client and even RubyMotion on mobile app dev, it's been a real treat to unify.

Hard to say, really. Installed, attempted to run Javascript. The app couldn't find node. Reported to developers; no response. Today, 1.2b is released, with a $PATH fix. Still no response from developers. Attempted to run again, but apparently the trial expires after one day, so my issue might be fixed, might now. Recommend sticking with other editors, frankly.

The issue with $PATH, as reported by other users has been fixed, so if you are able to run node from your terminal, you'll be 100% able to run it from Peppermint as well.

Also, the trial is NOT a 1-day trial, it's a 24-hr our real usage trial (much more than most trials offer if you think about it).

Now, as for e-mailing us and not responding, this is simply not true. My main goal is to create an editor that rocks so responding to users requests/suggestions and solving potential issues is my #1 priority.

In any case, I'm here. And I'll be glad to assist you in case you need anything :)

Downloaded it a few hours ago and I've already fallen in love with its ease-of-use. Many plugins too, live html AND markdown preview out of the box. Compiles CoffeeScript->Javascript, which is awesome. All sorts of web dev tools included, as well, JSLint, Html beautifier, CSS beautifier, JS Packer, and more! Great job guys. I'm definitely going to buy a license. Keep up the good work!
