Text Wrangler

Posted 2005 Aug 23

While I’m still a die-hard vim fan, gvim on OS X isn’t pretty and it was giving me headaches whenever I tried to edit Python scripts. So, I downloaded the free Text Wrangler from Bare Bones Software.

Firstly, it is very much an Mac application. So, A+ on that count. Even better, it’s surprisingly powerful. Some BBEdit plugins work, too (including one that adds Ruby support).

I’ve been using it to edit some Ruby code and have found it to be an entirely enjoyable experience… of course, after I realized you could disable1 mapping shift-backspace to forward delete. Gawd, that was annoying.

1 Preferences -> Editing: Keyboard -> uncheck “Enable Shift-Delete…”
