What editors are supported?

TeaCode is supported by most (we believe that by all of them, but we're not able to test each one) of native macOS text editors (e.g. Xcode, TextMate, Coda, Espresso, etc.). They just work.


Not-native editors, especially the ones written in JavaScript with no Accessibility support, need plugins to work with TeaCode.

Plugins provide different keyboard shortcut from the ones for native editors. So far every plugin expands the pattern by pressing ++e (ctrl+cmd+e). Usually it can be changed however it cannot be the same as the shortcut used by the native applications.
