Best Text Editor Tools
- Sublime Text lets you test out the text editor before committing to the investment. Although it’s a bummer you have to pay for this text editor, you at least get to try it out–and the pricing isn’t that expensive.
- The text editor runs on multiple platforms such as Mac, Windows, and Linux. It’s also cross-platform, so one license will work on all of your devices–no need to purchase more.
- Sublime Text provides split editing for managing and editing files next to each other. You can also open multiple windows and place them on different monitors.
- The Python API opens up opportunities to upgrade Sublime Text with plugin you, or other people, create.
- Sublime Text has extremely user-friendly and powerful shortcuts. From finding and modifying multiple lines to locating certain functions in the menu, Sublime Text should make shortcut lovers happy.
- You can also customize just about anything in Sublime Text. This is especially true when talking about shortcuts and menus. We recommend tweaking the settings to open files in the same window (new tab).
- Have some great community themes available. Check out the Dracula Sublime theme.
Need For Text Editor
HTML — this is the language that is used to structure web pages. Your browser interprets HTML and renders a page based on its instructions. Our text editor will be a web page that will work in your browser.
Your browser has a special block of memory that can be used to store data. It is restricted to a page (meaning, each page has its own isolated storage) and doesn’t sync across different devices or browsers. I’ll use this area to store our text.
Content Editable — some blocks in HTML can have this property, which will allow users to edit what’s inside that block. The changes will only be visible to the user (by default), but there will be changes nevertheless. Later, you can implement synchronization, so that other users see the edits as well.
Although Collab Mode does require a PRO subscription for the pen creator, collaborators aren’t required to pay in order to make edits.
This was the first time in 10 years that I didn’t have an “important thing to do” in a relatively short term perspective, which almost drove me nuts. So, what is a designer/programmer/philosopher/dude supposed to do? Build something of course. Create. So I started thinking of a few ideas I’ve had for a while and finally decided to explore my urge for a “better” program code editor. Sure I had a bunch of other projects rolling and (some?) social life mixed in there somewhere, but the first phase was to do some research. Finally I decided to go with the usual suspects for building OS X applications: Cocoa and C (well, C, C++, Objective-C, Objective-C++… they are all basically C of some sort).

Since the launch of Chromium (aka Google Chrome) for Mac, I’ve been almost kind of fascinated by the ingenuity of Chromium’s tab user experience.
Interfaces should be used between layers of an application and on any class that is likely to have (now or later) multiple implementations.
This is similar to a database-backed application, where you’d likely have an interface between the middle (business logic) layer and the database code. This would allow switching among JDBC, Java Persistence API (JPA)/Hibernate, and maybe No SQL databases. Some have argued that the JPA Entity Manager or Hibernate’s Session are general-enough interfaces for this purpose; others suggest using an application-specific interface. There’s no one right answer for all applications, but these are the design considerations.
