    Lightweight Plain-Text Editor for macOS

  • notepadqq

    A simple, general-purpose editor for Linux

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • TextEd.app

    A replacement of Apples TextEdit.app without RDF and iCloud, it starts much faster.

    It starts virtually instantly, and all it does is plain text. No other formats, no highlighting, nothing. Which is all I need.

    Less is more.

  • TextMate

    TextMate is a graphical text editor for macOS 10.12 or later

    I know no one talks about it anymore but TextMate 2 is still actively being developed and I find it excellent.
