TextBuddy for macOS

Faster than your IDE.
Easier than the command line.

Requires macOS Big Sur, Monterey, or Ventura.
Intel and Apple Silicon compatible.

TextBuddy is…

…a Mac app for manipulating text.

A Swiss Army knife for plain text that is there when you need it and hidden when you don’t.

TextBuddy is not…

…for writing code.

…for editing Markdown.

…for managing a library of plain-text notes.

TextBuddy is…

…a single-window of text with 137 useful commands you can run to transform, sort, and filter your text into the format you need, extract some data, or jot down a quick note.

Here’s a basic editing session…

Press ⌘T to open the Command Window, search for an action, and run it on your text.

Some nice user comments…

The bottom line. A marvel. If you work with text, you need this app.

I’ve used the term ‘delightful’ to describe an app maybe twice in the past 15 years, and I hate people who abuse such term. (Today *every little thing* online is awesome amazing delightful), but man, TextBuddy is a real workflow-booster for a text fiend like me!

I tried it out for 5 minutes and immediately purchased.

I find this insanely obvious as a product. I’m considering updating my Mac to Big Sur just to run this. It’s all the text manipulation I run from the CLI without having to look up syntax.
