Daring Fireball: BBColors 1.0

Posted on February 14, 2007 in General News, Hack

One feature still lacking in BBEdit which I’ve wanted for years is a way to easily save and switch between different text coloring schemes. BBEdit’s text colors have been configurable ever since syntax coloring appeared in BBEdit 4.0 in 1996, but there’s no means to save or change them en masse. Nor is there any way to share color schemes with other users.

So, I’ve put together a little command-line tool called BBColors; it lets you save, load, and share text color preference schemes for BBEdit and TextWrangler.
