Aquamacs

Version: 2.2 || Release Date: 2011-03-21 || License: Freeware App Owner: hmelman

Aquamacs is an Aqua-native build of the powerful Emacs text editor. By "Aqua-native," we mean more than just the fact that this version of Emacs runs as a standard OS X application. Aquamacs features extensive customization: it will feel and behave mostly like an Aqua program - while still being a real GNU Emacs with all the ergonomy and extensibility you've come to expect from this world-class editor.

Great editor, really really powerful. I'd love to see a few more interface tweaks to make it even more Mac like, see e.g. http://johnwickerson.wordpress.com/2011/02/12/chrome-style-tabs-for/

a fantastic build of emacs. it is the best Sweave (R and LaTeX) environment! 4.5 stars

I love it! It's a great hybrid of classic proper Emacs and a good Mac application.

I am a graduate student. I write lots of code. I love emacs, and I love aquamacs because it gives me the power of emacs with the style of mac. Oh yea, the key bindings are nice too. It uses the normal emacs key combinations, but will also accept standard mac combos too.
