Here’s a disk browser showing off the “BBEdit Dark” color scheme:
BBEdit offers the ability to work with files on FTP and SFTP servers as easily as if they were part of your local file system.
You can also add files from anywhere (on disk, or from FTP/SFTP) to a BBEdit Project (and save the Project for reuse). While the Disk Browser and FTP/SFTP Browser windows show you the structure of your volumes, BBEdit Projects let you easily access related files without them having to be located together.
BBEdit features extensive integration with the Unix command line, via a collection of powerful tools. These are included with the application:
bbeditcommand-line tool lets you open FTP and SFTP URLs from the command line, and behaves consistently with other Unix tools by allowing you to create files on the fly, as well as by accepting input piped from other Unix commands. (Try “
ls -la | bbedit”, for example.)
bbdiffprovides a command-line interface to “Find Differences”; it’s very useful when used as a command-line
diffhelper for SCM systems such as Subversion or Git.
bbfindto run multi-file searches from the command line, and return the results for additional processing.
bbresultstool parses file/line output from other Unix commands in order to generate browseable GUI results windows so that you can easily navigate warnings and errors (for example, from compiler output).
