The folks at Bare Bones Software just announced a big upgrade to their ubiquitous text editor, BBEdit. It’s got too many features to mention, but here are a few that jumped at me:
- A new AI-driven document type called ChatGPT Worksheets, which lets you interact with ChatGPT as you put your words on the page.
- Minimap, a palette gives you a nice overview of the document you’re working on, making it easy to see its structure.
- Expandable Cheat Sheets to reference bits of text that you use often or don’t remember how to type.
- A new UI for Text Factories, a long-standing and unique feature of BBEdit.
I’ve seen BBEdit grow for the last few decades and it’s nice to see it’s still going strong in 2024.
