  • CotEditor

    Lightweight Plain-Text Editor for macOS

    Project mention: Reflections on a Month with BBEdit and Nova | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-31

    Thanks for writing this up so beautifully. I'm an old Mac user and user Nova daily, mostly for Playdate development. It has been very unstable/crash-prone recently, agreed. The major crasher that lost me much work was fixed in a recent update, so I no longer want to delete the app but I would still appreciate it if they could take the accelerator off and fix all the crashers.

    I also have the following installed BBEdit (for some advanced commands only it can do), Sublime Text (for quick opening and searching of directories of text).

    My favourite editor: CotEditor https://coteditor.com (for it's unbelievable speed of launching, solid language/character-set support in particular Japanese; let down in only one way - it won't open folders of files). Highly recommended!

    Project mention: Distributing Mac apps outside the App Store, a quick start guide | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-01-14

    Oh, this is not awkward at all - You are spending your time on this with me. So I appreciate your questions and input very much!

    From 3.5.2 to 3.5.3 I _did_ remove image assets from a view[^1], so the app contents are not the same. The change was removing images from a view.

    I have an idea: I'll bump the version to 3.5.4 without changing anything else, and create a release with both, .zip and .dmg to compare them.

    Ideally, I'd use a completely new Mac to...

    - first install and run the app from .zip, expecting the app to be shadow-banned

    - secondly install and run the app from .dmg, expecting the app to work
