CodeEdit for macOS
CodeEdit is a code editor built by the community, for the community, written entirely and unapologetically for macOS. Features include syntax highlighting, code completion, project find and replace, snippets, terminal, task running, debugging, git integration, code review, extensions, and more.
|:warning:||CodeEdit is currently in development and not yet ready for production use. You are welcome to test the latest alpha build at your own risk. Please leave any feedback here.|

Most editors in use today rely on Electron or other cross-platform frameworks, limiting their ability to fully utilize system resources. While Xcode provides a native experience, it is specifically designed for projects targeting Apple platforms.
We think developers working on projects not written for Apple platforms deserve that same macOS-native experience we get with Xcode while unlocking the full potential of the Mac.
This raised the question "what if such an editor existed?", a question that led to the creation of this concept, which our project aims to make a reality.
It is our commitment to keep CodeEdit open source and free forever, supported by the community.
Our goal is to maintain a lightweight experience, similar to TextEdit, while being able to scale up to a more feature-rich experience, comparable to Xcode, as necessary.
We strive to remain true to Apple's human interface guidelines and development patterns, ensuring CodeEdit looks and feels like an application developed by Apple themselves, which includes a meticulous attention to detail.
We also hold a weekly meetup on Discord every Saturday at 3pm UTC. Join here.
