Not to worry. Don’t get too excited, Mac text editor users. Me and BBEdit still have a good relationship. I’m a Mincey. We collect things and have certain indulgences that range from poker to calculators to ponies and tech gadgets.
CudaText is a labor of love so you’ll find a number of features and functions not found in the basic run-of-the-mill editors. And, it’s cross platform, so there’s a Mac version, Windows version, and Linux (shown below).
What you get for free are more up-to-date features like code folding, code tree structure in SynWrite style, multi-carets, regex in find and replace, multiple tabs and split view.
The split view goes for two, three, four, and six different files. Yes, auto-completion is built-in, as is an option for plugins.
Hotkeys are customizable, too. Among the plugins you’ll find some standards and some options not found elsewhere. There’s a snippets manager, a macro manager, spell checker, brackets highlighter, color picker, and tabs in the sidebar.
Plugins are done in Python so you can roll your own as needed.
For lighter work, HTML and CSS are supported, including auto-completion, tags completion, HTML color codes, and even an option to drop in images.
All things considered, CudaText is a very capable text editor that has been under my radar for awhile but now added to my collection.
