Here’s some good news for developers of all platforms: the popular Mac text editor ‘Text Mate’ is going open-source.

TextMate is one of the most popular text editors available on OS X.

Announcing the open-sourcing on the TextMate blog, developer Allan Odgaard writes:

“I’ve always wanted to allow end-users to tinker with their environment, my ability to do this is what got me excited about programming in the first place…

“…with the still growing user base, I think the best move forward is to open source the program.”
