EditorWars - Vote for your favorite text editor

Fun little ThisOrThat clone I whipped up in a few minutes: EditorWars. Vote for your favorite text editor!

(Or if you want to set up a battle for something other than text editors, click Clone This App and make your own site!)


  • Ooh cool, I was kinda hoping to bump into TextMate but didn't find it yet *g*

    Got this when voting for ConTEXT though:

    Uncaught XN_Exception: Failed to save content:

  • Hi Peter - heh - TextMate is definitely in there somewhere :-)

    Bummer about the error. I shall report it.

  • Hi, I like that comparison. I was always looking for such an overview. But I am wondering, why you put eclipse and idea IntelliJ into the war. Some how they are all terrain vehicles in comparison to one-person sports cars like scite :)

    I like Scite most. Contains actually all functionallty besides automatic look-up for changes on files by third parties.

    However... I appreciate for your cool Blog... all interesting!

  • I tried cloning it,

    and i created this

    But in 10 minutes of futzing, i wasn't able to modify much.... oh well, back to rails hacking, it was fun and fast though...

  • Hi Theodor - Yeah SciTE is pretty cool - nice and fast.

    Rabble - Thanks for giving it a try! Actually there are a couple of Ning apps I've done that are very Rails-ish - quite proud of them actually -,,
