Installing Bluefish 2.2.3 on Mac OSX Lion 10.7

Now that I have started using OSX as another OS I started looking for a good free HTML editor. Of course being a Linux user I always look at OpenSource alternatives.Well, Bluefish is one that popped up.

Bluefish is a powerful editor targeted towards programmers and webdevelopers, with many options to write websites, scripts and programming code. Bluefish supports many programming and markup languages

There are several ways to install it using Macports, Fink and native dmg file. Option 1 is the way to go!

Option 1
Get the native dmg file from http://www.bennewitz.com/bluefish/stable/binaries/macosx/. It is a 14 MB download and the current version is 2.2.3.
Installation is as simple as double-clicking on the dmg file to open the archive and dragging the Bluefish icon to the Applications folder.

Option 2
Installing 2.0 Using Macports

Run from Terminal.app
 $ sudo port install bluefish

see https://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/editors/bluefish/Portfile

Option 3
Installing 2.2 Using Fink

Not to hard? Now you are on your way to start coding on OSX!
