I just finished reading your Free Mac Apps article ( MF289). I was excited to see you compare these apps to some well known premium alternatives, I was hoping to see a good alternative to Adobe’s Dreamweaver. However, my search for a good free alternative to that app goes on, but I will be checking out Gimp and Inkscape. Besides TextWrangler though, I think you missed a good free text editor – if you’re a Sublime Text (£50) fan, then I think Mac users should know about TextMate 2 from macromates.com. It’s in beta and has been for a while now but it’s very well featured with built-in syntax formatting for nearly every conceivable language and format. I use it a lot at work for creating Bash and Perl scripts, as well as HTML and CSS editing and writing. Owen Compton Christian Hall says: We’re glad you liked it, Owen. It’s incredible to think that such amazing tools can be obtained for free, and Mac owners shouldn’t immediately dismiss free apps. Regarding Dreamweaver alternatives, MacFormat rated RapidWeaver from Realmac Software (realmacsoftware.com). For more straight coding there’s Coda from Panic (panic.com). Both are paid-for apps. TextMate is free in its beta form, but we didn’t include it because the developer states that future versions might require a licence, hence payment too.
