I recently got my first Mac, but I can’t find a good code editor for it … I’ve already tried Coda, Espresso, net beans and text wrangler, but nothing beats notepad ++.

I basically need a simple code editor with a good syntax highlighting and without all those auto complete functions (I hate them, they mess up my whole code grrr).

I also need those lines that notepad ++ create on the divs … well I don’t how to explain what they are :)

Any suggestions? I’m thinking on installing WinBottler just to run notepad on my mac :P

Wow, I want to buy a Mac just for the Coda and you easily get rid of it for notepad ++.

When I was a PC user I also wanted a mac just to use coda :P After using it I realized that it wasn’t that good (at least for me). It messed up my whole code with those auto complete features and it is really expensive …

I think you just are not used with Coda yet. It is MUCH better than Notepad++. :)

I think this is just about personal preference, I switched from windows to os x because I wanted to use Espresso. I haven’t looked back since then.

It’s by far a better experience for web development.

You could try Aptana, but I think it’s more like the ones you don’t like http://www.aptana.com/

I’m guessing most IDEs allow you to turn off autocomplete if you’re that offended by it ;) These things are pretty customizable these days.

Up until today I’ve been on Aptana as sevenspark mentioned but it was overkill for quick edits and such so I’m moving to Coda.

Coda, Espresso, or BBEdit I think BBEdit is going to be the closest to Notepad++
