I have the trial version of this product and I really like it. I really love itd XHTML support and valid code completion. I did how ever notice their is no support for HTML5 and CSS3. Will there be an update with this soon? I also love the smart auto complete and src, href functions it has. I have twice as much for an editor and they dont come with nice features like that. Great app. Has potential to becoming one of the leaders for mac html editors. Also not sure if its because I have trail version but crashes when I try to use custom theme in preferences.

Been using this app for years and am glad to see it's still supported and advancing. It's small footprint and nimble action are both key assets to me. Tabbed UI is fantastic for working as well.

I see that the Mac App Store doesn't show the sale price, so I'll buy thru MacUpdate. Purists may object (or not) but I find convenience and time savings in going through the App Store. Continuing that theme, my vote for features I would value is code completion, help with getting code syntax right (tho I've just registered for a tech college course on CSS), and code checking. I use Dreamweaver for heavy lifting. But there are small sites and stand-alone code sections (to drop into WordPress, for example) for which I would like to use a more nimble but still "hand-holding" app. Look forward to seeing your efforts.

I guess I should be happy this isn't completely dead. I really dreaded when this program was sold, and even after the developer enthusiastically assured me that there were great things coming, I had a sneaky suspicion that this great program would die on the vine. I am pleased to see there are still updates coming out, but Before Dawn bought this a looong time ago and there's really been very little added. Again, I guess I should be grateful that it's still getting updates and that there hasn't been a false version number inflation just in order to get more money (yet). I'd love to see some more action and features added to keep in line with other HTML editors out there. Textmate and Coda both have stumbled in their last versions, so it's a ripe time to carpe diam with skEdit.

Excellent application. It's syntax highlighting is better when compared to Smultron (which got confused when I used PHP echo calls with escaped quotation marks) and I love the HTML tag auto-close feature. The tabs are really useful too as I tend to work with multiple files at once. One thing I would like to see changed is the tab design. It just doesn't fit into the modern Mac OS X Lion interface anymore in my opinion.

This has always been one of my favourite applications and I previously participated in the 4.0 beta program. Since I have had problems with my licence I have contacted Before Dawn Solutions many times but with no response to date. The app is available through the app store. I'm sure it's just as good as it was before the acquisition by before Dawn. I would just voice some concern over the developer's ability to support this app.

Latest version that apparently makes it compatible for sale in the AppStore is a bit buggy. Upgrading my previous version of the software, completely nuked all my preferences, my registration, even my snippets. I'm now having to start over, configuring everything. This sucks. I've contacted the developer to find out what I need to do to get my registration back, but it's been several hours and no reply. I've written to this developer twice since he acquired it and have not gotten anything back. Unfortunately, it looks like this once great software is going to wither and die at the hands of a developer who doesn't either know what he's doing or care. Sad. With Textmate also in the same boat, I guess I am going to finally move over to Panic's stuff and buy Coda. At least with Panic, I know they will respond to emails and offer better support of their products.

It's amazing how many HTML editors I've used... Of all of those, with out a doubt, skEdit is the easiest to use, has the best interface, and is fully Mac native. Version 4.0 is great except for a few things: 1. There needs to be an "Upload All" button in the toolbar. Also, it should be able to detect which files have non-uploaded changes and only upload those files. 2. The tabs show up despite my preferences setting. The settings take effect normally, but when you open a new window, the tabs come back. That's all I can think of so far. I have Mac OS X 10.4.11. My copy of skEdit is registered.

This is a great text editor I've been using since v3.5. Although, there's no exact comparison, skEdit 4.0 contains the important features other contenders (textmate, coda and bbedit) offer. Then, developed with simplicity and ease of use, makes skEdit in disposable. The developer seems to have put forth much effort with v4 and continues to rival what it takes entire companies to create.

I've been using skEdit as my primary editor for a few years now. It is by far the best HTML editor out there. The previous version was already pretty good, version 4 is amazing. I've been working professionally with the beta versions for a year. The developer worked very hard on it, was very responsive and just delivered the best editor out there. Stop looking for an editor, you found it.

I mainly use skEdit for writing websites (XHTML and CSS) and I just love the app's auto completion feature and the availability of project management capabilities. Before, I used jEdit but besides having many plugins and enhanced Java writing features, I prefer skEdit as it's faster and the auto completion feature is just snappier as it presents attributes a certain Html object better than jEdit. For example, creating a table will present a list of possible attributes while typing a space so one can immediatly see what's available. The GUI is also more polished and not cluttered with unimportant options. Lifelong updates are obviously a big gain, as well. The only downside for me is that the project management feature doesn't remember the pages I had open last time so I have to manually open them every time. So far, my favourite editor on the Mac. And in my personal cost benefit analysis it's the best commercial website editor on the planet.

The latest version is a big release, this app has matured quite a bit, it's well worth a look. It's true that there was a potentially nasty undo bug, but I was lucky not to see it too much, and it's gone in the latest version. The addition of tabs, FTP/STP/WebDav, working with external FTP apps, etc. etc.

Absolutely the best code editor for Mac OS X - hands down. The fact that it's written by one 21 year old developer just blows my mind. Behold the power of Cocoa! I've been beta testing 3.6 since last summer. The featureset is amazing. The app is super customizable and should be comfortable for anyone coding HTML, PHP, ASP, Coldfusion or Perl. A lifetime license for $20? It's a steal. If you code, you NEED this app.

Absolutely the best editor. I tried them all but none of them comes close to skEdit. Fast and simple, but you can customize everything to your personal needs. No fancy features that get in the way if you don't need them. I've been beta-testing for a while now and the developer is very active, releasing a new version every few weeks.

A great little editor; I've been a registered user since 2003 and while I've tried editors like BBEdit and TextMate, I've always come back to SkEdit because it's well-designed and makes it remarkably simple to work. Besides a solid featureset, the editor costs far less than most other HTML editors on the Mac and accomplishes what most people will need. The developer is highly responsive and puts a lot of work into addressings concerns (as the 3.6 update will show) so I'd highly recommend checking it out.

skEdit Rocks, and does so brilliantly. I've tried all the rest of the sub-$30 html/code editors and this one is the one to best handle multiple files in the same window, tabbed documents, and (oh my goodness, YES!) this is the best one to actually 'do' autocomplete code correctly in my view: After completing one part of the code you are typing, it fills in the closing tags and even puts your cursor in the right spot to continue typing code... properly. And, for the comments about it not being updated regularly, Sean does a fine job (seems about once or twice every 1 or 2 months. Seems like some developers get reemed for not being 'On, 24-hours, 7-days, etc., etc.,.." but skEdit has been a progressing power-app for some time in my book. I purchased the software along with the other 4-6 programs that are small but robust html/code editors, and this one is among the top 2 (after lengthy testing and comparisons, none of them actually do the same set of tasks).

Brilliant language editor with sufficient coverage & flexibility to be an asset to most webn developers. None of the convoluted, propriatary nonsense Dreamweaver, Frontpage, and similar system use to weigh their products down with. You code - therefor you are! My only recommendation for a future upgrade would be to include bracket balancing - to par down one of the most common mistakes in any kind of programming.

I have tested lots of heavy xhtml/internet programming editors like Jedit, Oxygen and Dreamweaver. But this is the fastest, and best in many fields also the mac os x intergration (cocoa) is superb compared to the others. Better than Dreamweaver in most areas but costs 20$ instead of 400.

I've used this through several versions. This latest has definitely made this a sweet sleek app. On a previous version, I'd turn off the auto-type features as they seemed to be to slow, but now they stay on! The preview feature is particluarly sweet if you use PHP. It lets you do a browser preview that points to the LOCALHOST instead of trying to open the page as if it where just HTML. Other editors may compare better in features, but the price is very right.

As a former Windows user who never thought I'd be able to shift development into the world of OSX (especially as most of my work revolves around ASP and SQL Server) because of the wealth of tools available to Windows users. After searching (and getting quite disillusioned) I discovered skEdit here on MacUpdate and tried v3.4. A week later after some amazing responses from the author (consistently responsive) I was a customer and have not looked back (or fired up my PC apart from to get to some archived material !) After waiting a couple of cycles I also moved across to the beta 3.5 and have been using it ever since. Added some great new features and tidied up the (already very good) interface a little bit more. Performance is great, and it's rock solid - and I use it 8 hours a day, every day ! It's not often you come across a tool this well suited to it's job, with the features you don't need blending into the background and never interfering. And it has a powerful user-extensible model so you can automate many of the common insertions / edits that you need to make... so the only limits are your imagination ! For me, the only downside is the lack of integrated (unsecure) FTP, but the (secure) SFTP integration seems to work like a charm

I only needed to use this editor for a few days for its value to become obvious. This is a great editor! Finally, I have found a reasonable editor for OSX comparable to EditPlus on the PC. I no longer have to consider what I feel is the obscenely overpriced BBEdit. Thank you Sean Kelly! All in all, SkEdit is a finely designed app. It has an excellent interface with some smart features. I especially like the site management designed with navigatable folders in the side pane. One of the few problems I have with skEdit is its inability to show line numbering with word wrap turned on. This really shouldn't be an issue for a good programmer to overcome. A hard return is easy to differentiate from a soft return so hopefully sean will address this niggly criticism in future releases. The autocomplete feature seems to work fairly well, and the text highlighting feature is nicely done. I've had no problems with stability or useability in general. Very good value for the money. I recommend it highly.

Why those files are created by your application? It is really bad to use a domain name that is not your own! What a shame...

Cool editor but nearly useless as when you want to preview your files, it just displays "~/Library/Application Support/skHTML/skEditTempFiles/skEditTempindex.html", and of course all the linked files aren't shown... Even free HTML editors got the preview feature working the right way. Some crash but this update is a bit more stable than the previous one. This editor doesn't worth it's price, sorry to say that. Most free editors provides what skedit has.

This latest update took this from a program I wouldn't use to one I plan to register! Stability seems to be there (going to try it) while the previous version crashed a lot. I do most my work in PHP, but the preview feature is always a nice touch and missing from too many editors. The customization of syntax highlighting allowed me to copy the customer colors I'd made in my other software. I liked being able to move files at the same time as I was editing them. Not something I do while working on my sites, but when trying to "upgrade" someone else's poorly designed sight it was great. You can't beat the price. Also many menus are "future proof" by allowing editing in preferences. Auto complete is nice and you can turn it off if it gets in your way. I really like the automated "special character to HTML" which I was using a separate program for. I really liked the pull downs for special characters as well. I would like to see split screen editing, but instant view change in the finder is good enough for now. I even like the new logo.. hard hat.

Aside from a fairly plain interface, the underlying power of this code editor can't be denied -- especially if you have large websites. It's reliable, fast and very flexible and it's HTMLTidy inclusion makes crappy code cleanup from dirty editors a breeze.

I must concur, this is a really promising editor. As others have indicated, sure there are features that would make it even better, but the developer has gotten off to a good start (after a year or so of development, I believe.) It could use more extensive syntax colouring, and other niceties, but it's already amongst the best independent editors around, and giving the commercial editors a run for their money in a lot of areas.

skEdit is really cool, it's price is really competitive, plenty of features but i'd never seen such an unstable app make it nearly useless (even for trying the demo). Developer, debug it please!

I've used skEdit for several months now, and I've seen it improve all the time. It's fantastic value for $20: it does 98% of what something like BBEdit does, but at a fraction of the price. Better than that, it does some things *better* than BBEdit. The code hinting implementation is really beautiful--it works quickly and smoothly, and doesn't get in your way. Since I registered, I've started coding in Perl, and I've been really appreciating the features for scripting, like excellent syntax highlighting and, integrated PerlDoc viewing, and a "Run in Terminal" command. Sean is a very responsive developer, and I look forward to seeing what he comes up with next.

I have been giving this little gem a workout for the past few .x.x revisions. It is a really nice editor with some quirks, but also with some features that much more heavier hitting editors lack. I use it to primarily work on Perl driven cgi apps... so I need to work on Perl, html, and occassional JavaScript. This proram has nice touches such as color hex code insertion, code hinting (a little pop-up that provides a hint about the function you are inserting), a snippets library, the ability to open up an entire folder of scripts... and best of all... direct integration with perlpod... type a function name and bam, its documentation gets piped to your screen. Shweeet! Because I just can't remember all the Perl functions and their syntax. There are many other options that look neat but I haven't used yet -- ftp, cvs, tidy, etc. But, perhaps more than anything, the person who wrote the program wins 5 stars hands down. We already know from his website that he is a young lad, but I have discovered that he is also amazingly responsive. Seems like a really nice guy who is giving this product a lot of support and a good life. I think the best thing I can do for this program is to use it regularly, and provide feedback to Sean so he can continue to improve it. Very good work.

Hi, this is the developer. Just to clear up Dogzilla's comment, by default, skHTML checks with my server when it is launched to see if a new version has been released. Perhaps this should be turned off by default. It can be turned off in the preferences. Sorry for any inconvenience.

skHTML is a great tool for polishing up code. While I don't favor it for constructing sites, it's code and site tools are superb and quite unique, plus author is constantly adding and refining it - always a plus.

When I first launched this demo, it tried to connect to port 80 on 65.115.131.91 . I couldn't find anything in the docs about this, and the app didn't warn me or ask permission to do this. When I denied permission, the app hung and had to be force-quit. Is this normal behavior for this app or is the version uploaded here trojaned? If it is normal behavior: folks, if you're going to write a program that connects to your servers - even if it's just to increment a counter so you can keep track of the number of users - don't try to be all sneaky about it. If you're not doing anything ilicit then why hide it from the user? I sure wouldn't mind letting the developer know I'm trying out his/her demo, but I don't want an app to be sending unspecified information from my computer behind my back.
