    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for a nice and simple programming tool. Now my option is either Smultron, or TextEdit - at least until I don't feel like buying Coda.

    My questions though is if there is any way I can color code while writing in textedit? As in while writing PHP, or HTML, can there be colored text any way or with some addon?

    If not then I might try Smultron.

    I've used both Smultron and TextWrangler. I prefer the former, as it's what I used at first, so I'm more used to it. I know people who like TextWrangler better. Try both, and see which one you like more.

    scienide09, I just did try out both and I have to say as well that Smultron is much better. I guess I will just stick to smultron as it currently has everything I need.
