BBEdit is the leading professional text, code, and markup editor for the Macintosh.
As the "go to" tool for web site designers, web application developers, writers, and software developers, this award-winning product provides an abundance of high-performance features for editing, searching, and manipulation of text, code, and HTML/XML markup.
As a replacement for TextWrangler, BBEdit is built by the same developers, using the same award-winning technology, and is identical to TextWrangler in every way you're used to. BBEdit is 64-bit and compatible with macOS Catalina.
An intelligent interface provides easy access to BBEdit’s best-of-class features, including: grep pattern matching; search and replace across multiple files; project definition tools; function navigation and syntax coloring for numerous source code languages; code folding; FTP and SFTP open and save; AppleScript and Automator support; Unix scripting support; text and code completion; a complete set of robust HTML tools; and more.
BBEdit offers a 30-day evaluation period (beginning the first time you use it on your computer), during which its full feature set is available.
During the evaluation period, BBEdit is fully functional. After the evaluation period has expired, you can continue to use BBEdit for free, forever, with no nag screens or unsolicited interruptions.
In “free mode”, BBEdit provides a modified set of features, which incorporates a powerful set of core features. Using BBEdit in free mode costs you nothing, while providing an upgrade path to advanced features and capabilities.
To enable BBEdit’s advanced features after the evaluation period is over, you will need to have an active BBEdit subscription. Subscriptions are available on either a monthly or annual basis.
An active subscription gives you access to all of BBEdit’s advanced features, including any new features that we introduce during updates or major upgrades, for as long as the subscription is in good standing.
Please see our comparison chart for a detailed listing of which advanced features are available with a subscription.

BBEdit 13.1 is a recommended update for all customers. This version introduces significant feature additions and refinements, including (but not limited to): improved HTML previewing; advanced control over Markdown rendering; a new "Run Unix Command" command; significant improvements to its built-in CSS syntax coloring and navigation support; built-in HTML Tidy commands; performance improvements; and fixes for reported issues.
BBEdit 13.1.1 addresses a crashing issue which affected Mac App Store customers with active subscriptions. (We‘re really sorry about that.)
Most Helpful Reviews
Bare Bones trying to pull a fast one? - I purchased a version of BBEdit from the app store at the begining of 2018 for a good chunk of change. I've previously enjoyed the features of the application and find no reason to ask for change. Expecting, given I paid full purchase price, that this software would remain functional until they developed features warranting my repeat business. However, in October of this year, Bare Bones used the app store to "upgrade" me to an unlicensed version (v13) of the software that now requires a monthly subscription to continue to function. Luckily I retained a copy in my timemachine backup from the day prior to it's release and have reclaimed what I rightfully paid for and should be allowed to continue using under that purchase agreement. I'm writing this review as a warning that this company has no qualms about sneaking you into an unagreeable subscription without warning. Everyone wants recurring revenue... but I don't care for having additional bills for every bit of software that I occasionally use. They should give their previously loyal customer's (as was I) the option (subscription with software updates) or flat pricing without updates. These should be separate items in the App Store. They never should have replaced a fully paid App Store application with a manditory subscription based one. :(

great text editor - I am a novice to the programming, but I can feel the powerfulness of this app. I believe I will learn more and enjoy more when I progress on this coding path.
The Best - I've been using BBEdir for more years than I care to remember. It has never failed to do exactly what I need it to do. Total text control for developers.
30 day eval - This is not a free download.
Get to buy what you bought again - If you purchased this a while back, they went to a sub model so you get to pay for it all over again! On a regular basis! So many other better options that don't do this.
They Make You Buy What You Already Bought Again! - In the first place, the product is OK. It’s not great but it is OK. There are better editors out there. The biggest problem I have is that I (like others who have complained) bought their product from the App Store a while back. Then they changed to a subscription model and so now everyone gets to buy the software all over again! Every year! You really have to question the ethics of a company that conducts business in this manner.
