I have Notepad ++.  I just downloaded Sublime Text 2.  Fuck your OSX.

Erase OSX and install a real operating system.

Geany is my favourite code editor, looks like it's available in macports.

:/

I'm kinda bad at this stuff.  That Geany thing looks really complicated to set up.  I'm just doing some basic C++ stuff, but the colors in notepad++ help a ton!

xcode is crazy heavy and as far as I can tell no one really likes it. People use it because build tools for apple's various platforms are inseparably bound to it.

Anyway, Sublime Text or its spiritual successor Atom seem like a good fit, pretty lightweight and unintrusive although maybe a little more tooled up than notepad++ (hard to say since I haven't used notepad++ in years). Textmate seems to be in the same general space as the other two but I kinda got the impression sublime stole most of its users.

I'm running notepad++ on a virtual instance of Windows but sometimes I don't want to deal with all that.  Not a huge deal I guess, just wish I could do my first attempt on OSX.  Windows is different!

And if I had to label myself, I'd say I'm omnisexual.

Does it?  Lemme look around...

Cooool if the Xcode thing doesn't work out I'll look for these.  Thanks, guys!

I'm sorry I cannot help you at this because I personally do not own a mac. I recommend gedit because it is what I use extensively until I switch into notepad++. I'm not sure what is the problem in gedit mac installation but it seems that your version of gedit may not be compatible with you osx version.

Aww don't worry about it!  I probably did something wrong is all.  Thanks for the advice :)
