Integrate Smoothly Into Existing Workflows

Automator Support

BBEdit includes a set of Automator actions that mirrors its internal text transformations; most of what is on the Text menu is available to Automator, as well as a “Replace All” action for search and replace; and a few supporting actions to smooth the process of getting text into and out of open BBEdit documents. No scripting required!

Enhanced SCM support ( top )

Direct integration with Git and Subversion: BBEdit’s Git and Subversion menus include all of the commands that you need for common operations. In addition, when committing from within BBEdit, a handy submission form makes it easy to write commit comments.

Perforce (the leading commercial source code management (SCM) system) increases productivity for developers using BBEdit. BBEdit’s attractive GUI makes Perforce more approachable for new and prospective Perforce users, as well as Perforce customers coming to macOS from other platforms. BBEdit features integrated support for working with files stored in Perforce depots, including add/delete, edit/revert, revision comparison, synchronization, submission, and conflict resolution.

Finally, the built-in support for version control systems uses BBEdit’s editing environment for writing the comments included when committing changed files.

bbdiff ( top )

The bbdiff command-line tool allows you to invoke BBEdit’s powerful “Find Differences” command from the Unix command line. You can even configure Subversion, Perforce, and Git to use BBEdit to view the differences between file revisions.

bbresults ( top )

Many Unix tools and scripts generate output that references specific file and line positions (for example, compile errors). The bbresults command-line tool allows you to present this output in a easy-to-navigate GUI results window within BBEdit.

Shell Worksheets ( top )

BBEdit’s Shell Worksheets are much more than a terminal — they’re the best of both the shell and BBEdit! Enter and run Unix commands from within BBEdit, while applying BBEdit’s editing power to prepare commands, or slice & dice the output. Take advantage of the application’s central Unix Worksheet to keep it all in one place, if you like; or create your own worksheet documents. Every BBEdit project carries its own worksheet as well, for added convenience.
