TextWrangler Source Code Editors

Download TextWrangler 
Unlike Notepadd++ mentioned above, TextWrangler is not open source and it is a Mac-only program. It also only supports one language: English. It is, however, a very "powerful general purpose text editor, as well as Unix and server administrator’s tool." While on the surface it looks such as just a plain and simple text editor, it possesses a bunch of features. There’s a Documents Drawer (closed through default) that might be opened to watch and compare selected documents. As a code editor it includes syntax coloring and function navigation for 44 programming languages such as ActionScript, C++, HTML, JavaScript, Perl, Python, SQL and VBScript. With TextWrangler you can also open extremely huge files; it’s only limited next to the RAM on your computer and OS X limitation to files.

If you need more advanced features such as FTP and SFTP open and save, AppleScript, Mac OS X Unix scripting suppor, sleep mode, auto-save and more you can upgrade to BBEdit.
