Professional text editing for Chrome and Chrome OS
"...easily the best code editor on the Chromebook." - AppStorm (http://bit.ly/1cbViEL)
Caret is a graphical text editor modeled on Sublime Text, running completely offline (no Internet connection required) and capable of opening and saving files anywhere on your hard drive. The goal of Caret is to provide a missing portion of the Chrome OS developer story: serious programmer tooling without needing to install a second OS and learn Vim.
- total offline support--no network connection required, ever
- tabbed editing
- syntax highlighting for many languages, and lots of color themes
- hackable settings files in JSON format
- remembers/restores open tabs
- open files directly from the Chrome OS file manager
- Project view with full-text search and project-specific settings files
- Sublime-compatible keymappings, including multiple cursors and selections
- Command palette/smart "go to" functionality
Help documentation is available at the GitHub wiki, including a list of possible keyboard/menu commands: https://github.com/thomaswilburn/Caret/wiki

If you like Caret, leave a review! I love reviews.
1.6.2: Project search now maintains a history of past searches using the up/down keys. Fix some bugs with the project listing and `ignoreFiles` settings. Added .vb and .vba extensions for Visual Basic syntax.
1.6.1: Project search results are now clickable jump links, and fix some minor bugs with the search process.
1.6.0: I'm thrilled to announce that I was wrong, and that project-wide search (including unopened files) has come to Caret, thanks to a lovely contribution by @brismuth. With that in mind, I've bumped it to 1.6, since this will form the basis for a number of much-requested features, including a replacement for Ace's anemic search widget.
Please file any bugs you find at our GitHub repo!
