Celebrating 30 years and counting! We'd like to thank all of our customers for your support over the years — we couldn't have done it without you.
BBEdit is the leading professional text, code, and markup editor for the Macintosh.
As the "go to" tool for web site designers, web application developers, writers, and software developers, this award-winning product provides an abundance of high-performance features for editing, searching, and manipulation of text, code, and HTML/XML markup.
As a replacement for TextWrangler, BBEdit is built by the same developers, using the same award-winning technology, and is identical to TextWrangler in every way you're used to. BBEdit is 64-bit and compatible with macOS Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey.
An intelligent interface provides easy access to BBEdit’s best-of-class features, including: grep pattern matching; search and replace across multiple files; project definition tools; function navigation and syntax coloring for numerous source code languages; code folding; FTP and SFTP open and save; AppleScript, Automator, and Shortcuts support; Unix scripting support; text and code completion; a complete set of robust HTML tools; and more.
BBEdit offers a 30-day evaluation period (beginning the first time you use it on your computer), during which its full feature set is available.
During the evaluation period, BBEdit is fully functional. After the evaluation period has expired, you can continue to use BBEdit for free, forever, with no nag screens or unsolicited interruptions.
In “free mode”, BBEdit provides a modified set of features, which incorporates a powerful set of core features. Using BBEdit in free mode costs you nothing, while providing an upgrade path to advanced features and capabilities.
To enable BBEdit’s advanced features after the evaluation period is over, you will need to have an active BBEdit subscription. Subscriptions are available on either a monthly or annual basis.
An active subscription gives you access to all of BBEdit’s advanced features, including any new features that we introduce during updates or major upgrades, for as long as the subscription is in good standing.
Please see our comparison chart for a detailed listing of which advanced features are available with a subscription.

Ratings and Reviews
License - Apple ID & PWD
Why after downloading must I use a non-trusted Apple login UI vs the OAuth Apple Login flow. This is basically a man in the middle password capture.
Such a background power hog
BBEdit is the culprit of my 3-hour battery life on the new macbook pro. Seriously what're you doing in the background with absolutely no task running and no window open?
consistently awesome since forever
Long term serious user of BBEdit. It never ceases to amaze me how complicated “just” text can be… or how well BBEdit handles it. This app is useful and essential in so many ways it’s ridiculous. The only other app that is in the same league for diverse utility is LaunchBar.
