Fraise, Successor To Smultron, Continues Development Of The Simple OS X Text Editor

Mac OS X only: Rising from the ashes — or strawberry pulp — of the defunct Mac text editor Smultron, Fraise attempts pick up where the great open source Smultron left off.

We highlighted Text Wrangler in our 2010 Mac Pack even though we had our hearts on Smultron. Smultron's development ended prior to Snow Leopard, and while a special beta version was made available for compatibility purposes, it looked like the end of Smultron's active development. Fraise picks up where Smultron left off. While virtually identically to its predecessor, Fraise adds several language localisations missing from the "special beta version".

If you're not familiar with Smultron, Fraise continues with its great features. Fully customisable syntax colouration, snippets and commands and both live and the excellent advanced find are just a few. Best of all, like Smultron, Fraise remains free. For a closer look at the interface, check out the video below.
