Bare Bones Software revised the BBEdit editor, well known in the macOS world, and gave it a rating function in addition to smaller features. It helps developers store notes and code snippets on a project-specific or multi-project basis, which is useful when working with many side projects.
Content should be structured, easy to find and edit. Commitment to a project does not go far enough here. This is the direction in which the Notes aim. They can be structured into folders and keep their assigned file type, even without special extensions. As a result, you can navigate the notes and also set flags. Notes are written using the menu or in the Notes window. When searching across multiple files, Notes can be specified as sources. Notes are named automatically.
Another feature is the integration of the Language Server Protocol (LSP). This protocol, based on external servers for individual languages, was developed by Microsoft. With LSP, BBEdit extends the editing functions of the source code. The protocol now complements the code much better than the previously supported Ctags tool. Navigation to definition and references in source code is now faster. Error messages, warnings, and information are displayed directly in the editor by the built-in linter, and the source text can be reformatted when supported by the language server.
