“Caret” – Text Editor App for Chrome

Caret is a new text editor for Google Chrome and Chrome OS. This is a “Chrome App” or a native app and works offline by default. If you are a developer looking for a feature rich editor for your Chromebook, give this a try.


– total offline support–no network connection required
– tabbed editing
– syntax highlighting for many languages, and lots of color themes
– hackable settings files in JSON format
– remembers/restores open tabs (requires Chrome 31 for full support)
– open files directly from the Chrome OS file manager
– Sublime-compatible keymappings, including multiple cursors and selections
– Command palette/smart “go to” functionality

There is a pretty neat list of themes available to customize the look. There is also a long list of programming languages to select from. If you are a keyboard shortcuts person, I am sure you will like this app.
