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
- tabbed editing
- syntax highlighting for many languages, and lots of color themes
- hackable settings files in JSON format
- remembers/restores open tabs (requires Chrome 31 for full support)
- open files directly from the Chrome OS file manager
- Project view with folder navigation and project-specific settings files (requires Chrome 31)
- 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

1.4.2 - Fixed middle click on tabs.
1.4.1 - Added an option to trim empty lines along with trailing whitespace. Updated the extensions for SQL files. Fixed a bug where the editor didn't resize correctly in fullscreen mode.
1.4.0 - New major release focusing on UI: Menus have moved into the title bar. Added an "immersive fullscreen" option for Chrome OS. Closing the application will now prompt on unsaved changes. A debug console for issuing commands is now available. Also includes bugfixes for the collapsible project view and tab look-and-feel.
