Rasmus Andersson who's currently developing the code editor Kod is telling us a little bit about how he came up with the idea, and why. I really like the spirit and goals of the project. The upcoming syntax highlighting and plugin features appeals a lot to me, as well as the clever address field in the app, which lets you edit any text file you know the URL for – local or remote. Textmate is great, but it's not that maintained and up-to-date. A lightweight, customizable, community developed code editor like Kod would help a lot. Go check out Kod's Github page and see if there's anything you can do.
