Komodo Edit

Komodo Edit is the free, open source version of the team-oriented Komodo IDE development system. It is a flexible, programmable editor that can be configured to support may different languages and programming frameworks. If you need more automation and closer ties to programming languages, then the Komodo IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is available on a commercial basis.

Full disclosure: I have used Komodo Edit for years as the editor whenever I'm writing code. I have found it to be easy to use and powerful for a wide variety of languages. It's part of my toolkit.
