CotEditor for Mac is a open-sourced, Cocoa-based plain-text editor for OS X.
It supports syntax highlighting, strong find-and-replace with OniGmo (regular expression engine), and other small goodies for coding. It may handle also CJK languages nicely.
CotEditor is just made for macOS. It looks and acts just as macOS applications should. CotEditor for Mac launches so fast you could write your text immediately once you want to. CotEditor is designed as an open-source project which allows everyone to contribute.
Colorize over 50 pre-installed major languages like HTML, PHP, Python, Ruby or Markdown. It is also possible to make your personal settings.

Powerful Find & Replace
Super powerful find and replace using the ICU regular expression engine.
Inspect Unicode character data of each selected character in your file and display them in a popover.
Setting via Click
