Some competition for Jon http://chocolatapp.com/

It seems to be a more user-friendly version of Sublime. I've signed up for a test, but only so I can see if there are features which I'd like to see in Sublime, which I haven't seen mentioned already :)

Sublime is by far my favourite editor ever!

Can't see anything more user friendly here. It just has an extra theme and language manager module and split editing one file.

Just want to point out that in Sublime Text you can split-edit a file. Change your layout to two columns, and use File>Clone File to get two views.

However, Sublime Text can't jump to any symbol in the project. That would be really useful.

What this tells me is that the Sublime homepage needs a refresh. Badly. So many Mac users will reject apps out of hand if the initial look and feel isn't right. That applies to the website of the app, too. If a Mac user visited that site then Sublime, I fear they'd assume Chocolat is the superior product, which I don't think it is. I'm really liking wbond's clean, tight style atm... :)

I did offer Jon a new website layout etc.

IMO Sublime's killer feature over Chocolat and most other editors is that it is cross platform. I dev on both Windows and Mac and being able to take my editor and all my tweaks with me is HUGE.

It's possible for a single file. (Ctrl+R). Don't think it would be that hard to do that project wide, but could require more parsing and caching imho.

The CTags package can be of help with regards to symbol navigation:

And I offered him a new icon. Jon, please take 2 minutes from programming to say "yes" to those who are offering to help.
