As a developer I need to constantly be examining/editing the contents of text files, and opening them from Finder and the command line.
I would like to right click the file in finder, and have the menu option "Open with Sublime Text Editor" or at least TextEdit!
There even seems to be the option to do this at least with the default TextEdit in Mavericks:
System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Services > Files&Folders > Open Selected Files in TextEdit
But if I check that, nothing happens! As opposed to "new terminal at folder" which DOES work.
right click on the file -> Open with -> Other -> "tex"-> (click TextEdit) -> check "Always open with..." -> Open
'foo.bar can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.'
WHAT? All that work for nothing!
Instead I have to launch TextEdit, and open the file.
The command line is no fun either; using vim / emacs is horrible; I don't want any editor where I have to remember some obscure keyboard shortcut to even get back to my terminal prompt.
So how do I achieve a decent workflow as a developer?
