I'm looking for an extremely lightweight text editor that opens almost instantly and uses very little memory on OSX.
I have TextWrangler and Sublime Text, but both of those editors take more than 10 seconds to open. They're great when I want to work on a serious project, but often I want to write or open a small text file while working on a non-programming task. For these, I want to be able to open a text editor within a split-second, write my file, and close the editor again shortly thereafter.
Moreover, Sublime Text, in particular, can slow down my computer when I have several other resource-intensive apps open, such as Chrome and Eclipse.
I want a text editor that won't slow my computer down any more, even when I'm already running a lot of large programs on it.
I want a text editor that shows me my text in black on white as soon as I open the app.
- very fast
- low memory
No need for extra features such as syntax highlighting, I'm not going to use it for programming.
