I started using this new text editor called Kod (runs on Mac OS 10.6):

It's very very fast, I'm a poor programmer and I don't have money to pay for TextMate, this might be the closest to TextMate that I've used. (TextMate cost around $50).

The problem is.... Where is the preferences window? Where can I set the font size? I need to make it bigger, that's it... Does anyone know how to do that?

EDIT: I think they haven't implement them yet... From their discussion in google group.

Locate the Kod application bundle (e.g. /Applications/ and Show Package Contents.

Navigate to /Contents/Resources/style/ and copy default.css to your desktop. Rename the file to kod.css.

Open Terminal and enter the following command:

defaults write se.hunch.kod style/url ~/Desktop/kod.css

Open the kod.css file in an editor and change the font-size attribute of body to change text size. font-family determines which font is used.

If Kod is running, select View » Reload Style.


Store your modified CSS file anywhere you want. Desktop is just an example -- just remember to tell Kod via defaults where it's located.

Thank you. I did not even move it to Desktop, I just edited the css file right in the application package contents. You're a winner! – Enrico Susatyo Jan 17 '11 at 10:28
@the_great_monkey This'll get overwritten every time you update the application. But it's probably a good idea in this stage of the application's development, with the possibility of major changes to these files. – Daniel Beck Jan 17 '11 at 10:37
If you edit the style sheet directly in Kod, it will update the styles as soon as you save the file. – Ferruccio Mar 10 '11 at 12:54

You can't. Yet. It's still only a very early beta. They haven't added that feature quite yet. And, there isn't a preferences window at all right now.
