Kod - a programmers' editor for Mac OS X

Kod an lightweight editor for programmers offers a skinnable Interface trough regular CSS3, Syntax highlighting for 65 languages (Kod uses the same format as GNU Syntax Highlight so it can be easily extended), and a clean and simple interface.
The application is fully concurrent — loading files, syntax highlighting, etc is distributed across available CPU cores. Minimal waiting time.
Also featured is an integrated scripting environment based on Node.js.
Kod was written from scratch with modern OS X 10.6 APIs providing maximum OS integration while avoiding reinvention of the wheel.
Furthermore it sports a Chromium-like user interface where tabs can be torn off and moved between windows.


Kod is open-source under a MIT like license.

very sleek, and the file list on the left looks to be quite useful

Stare Dad said...

Nice program. Since we are at this theme do you know if the Programming languages are the same to macs? For example a are there C compilers for mac? And if so are the syntaxes the same?

Patti D. said...

very nice software

Erika said...

That's really cool.

I usually just use Kate or gedit myself. Just regular text editors with various syntax highlighting.

@Stare Dad
yes sure nearly every programming language is available for os x including #c through the mono project
i code in objc which is the "encouraged" language for os x which is an extended c/c++
apple itself does a lot of contributions to gcc and even made this awesome project http://llvm.org/

I always find those apple programs so visually appealing. However, I never remember how to "rightclick" with macs :P

mac-and-me said...

@M.D. Flodström
just press the right mousebutton?
or the right side of your mulittouch mouse
or click with 2 fingers on the touchpad

I'm sure if I were so inclined at the moment, and owned a mac right now, I'd be interested. Such being, I'm looking forward to more posts from you on why I should own a mac\ :P

I can see alot of applications for this in regards to integrating graphic design (which the Mac excels at) and actual programs. Great stuff!
