    I know this question has most likely been asked millions of times but i cant find any thread on it. If anyone can help that would be very good. As-long as the software can open a .yml file in a text form and can be saved ect, (and works on a mac!) please tell me. thanks! :)

    Info: Im running Mac OS X Snow leopard 10.6.8

    yes, try Notepad ++. however, whenever editing .yml files, you have to use 4 spaces instead of a tab, otherwise it screws up. With notepad++, you can set the tab button to automatically use 4 spaces instead. Notepad++ also lets you see things colour coded by type and makes it easy to view many different file types

    @Above poster: He said a MAC...

    @OP: TextEdit (built into the OS) works fine.

    But it's not free.

    The parser does not care how many spaces there are, as long as they are only spaces, and that each item on a level has the same indentation.
  8. Fair enough. However, I use textmate to do everything on the mac, from writing php, to emailing parents and mark down blogging for my site. I don't use pages or word for mac, etc. So it was a small investment - since it was an all in one. That's one.

    Ah. I prefer Espresso for development on the Mac. But my laptop runs Windoz.

    Is TextEditor the same as TextEdit?

    TextEdit works fine, but I personally use TextWrangler whilst editing YML files on my mac :)
