Where did you find the MEL syntax for the crimson editor? I couldn't find it on the homepage. Since the crimson is freeware I'd like to try it =)

I'm using Hydra for OSX Mel development. I posted a MEL syntax pList on their site. Hydra does nearly everything UltraEdit does that is meaningful to Mel development and it's free.

I'm a HUGE fan of SciText editor. It installs with Digital Fusion and I'm not sure if you can get it otherwise, I'd image ya could though. I prefer it because it's not near the crap that UltraEdit has (it's nice and clean). Plus, it's got a column on the right that you can resize that serves as an awesome scratch pad. It's better than having bunches of tabs at the top and random files floatin around!

Ultraedit is the bomb.

MEL syntax highlighting
Color coding for all different types of commands
Search & Replace
Column Editing
{} opening/closing loops recognition

I live in UltraEdit everyday. I'd highly recommend it.

ultraEdit highlighting

For those who couldn't get the mel syntax highlighting in ultraEdit, first make sure you have the highend file ( )
pasted into the ultraEdit's text file, then in ultraEdit go to view>View As [highlighting file type]>mel script.

I use SourceEdit. It is free and has syntax-highlighting for mel (downloadable on the website), code-completion for MEL-commands, automatic indentation and a function-list to navigate in long scripts.

Blue Mel Studio is a really nice thing!
thanks for pointing that one out... I enjoy its code-completion feature the most. Ideal for those just starting on the road towards MEL-guruship, like myself.
thanks, max liani...

I just downloaded Blue Mel Studio. What a cool plugin, Max Liani could charge a hundred bucks for this thing (but don't tell him that). I like em free
