After having used Atom for years (now sunsetting) and Sublime the last few months (one of the most recommended editors), I have migrated to using CotEditor as my main text editor.
CotEditor is a free and open-source text editor for macOS. It is designed to be lightweight and focused on providing a clean and efficient writing environment.
"The Plain-Text Editor for macOS"
Available from the macOS App Store.
Code on Github - last updated 2 weeks ago:
- lightweight / opens fast
- clickable hyperlinks
- detailes stats (eg total words & selected words, not just character count)
- automated highlight of all occurences of selected text
