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

If you like Caret, leave a review! I love reviews.
1.5.15 - Add Vietnamese translation (thanks, Khai!) Adds more default Powershell extensions. Adds the ability to set the cursor style for the editor. Upgrades Ace to 1.2.0.
1.5.13 - Fix a flexbug with lots of tabs in Chrome 44+. Better contrast for dialog box buttons. Set paths in the tab hover text on all saves, not just the first one.
1.5.12 - Bump to attempt to fix the corrupted ZIP problem.
1.5.11 - Fixed a flexbug that was causing projects to overflow without scrolling on Chrome Beta.
1.5.9 - Added German translation (thanks, Michael!). Fixed bugs with printing on some devices. Finally got around to starting the "Material" style refresh, although I'm not much of a designer and we're still wildly short on slick animations.
1.5.6 - Added Spanish translation (thanks, Damian!)
1.5.5 - Updated Ace to v1.1.9, which may fix bugs in Vim mode (I wouldn't know). Added Julia to the list of automatically supported extensions on Chrome OS.
1.5.4 - Fixed another "save cancelled bug." Added a notification whenever Caret is upgraded, so that you can see these wonderful changelogs. Enabled JSX syntax.
1.5.3 - Fixed a bug when the user cancels saving a file. Fix custom themes. Adds a "no updates" message when checking manually.
1.5.2 - Enabled AsciiDoc, Gherkin, and Tcl modes.
1.5.1 - A new minor release! This version of Caret adds the ability to define a custom theme that's synchronized between computers (theme.json). It also adds an option to disable live reload, for users who have been bothered by a "jumpy cursor" when focusing on the Caret window, and adds bugfixes for the menu/keyboard system.
