Contributor Notes

If you're a bundle author, please edit the below & upload the bundles here, rather than linking to messy forums. Also, please fill out any missing info, including bundle version (use date if you're not tracking versions), which version of the Unity API the bundle supports, iPhone API support, etc.

If you want to make a change to an existing bundle, i.e. include your own formatting, folding etc. please first post in the discussion page before updating the bundle and allow 1 day for feedback. This gives people who follow this page a chance to consider the changes for inclusion (this is intended Wiki usage).

Lastly, feel free to edit the formatting, appearance, etc. of the entries; it's OUR wiki after-all! :)

Contributor Notes

Feel free to edit the mode; however, it would be appreciated if you could donate me from my website I will soon be coming out with modes for Boo and C#. Enjoy!

Unity JavaScript

UnityDevelop (WIN)

UnityDevelop is a modification of FlashDevelop (an excellent ActionScript editor). It understands Unity JavaScript and provides autocomplete for your scripts and built-in Unity stuff. It also provides very basic syntax highlighting for ShaderLab.

UnityScript Editor (WIN)

UnityScript Editor is a specially designed editor for the Unity 3D javascript language. Syntax highlighting for all commands, functions and attributes, makes it easy to see what’s going on in your scripts. UnityScript features Intelliprompt support for all of UnityScripts functions and commands (excludes Editor specific functions), as well as command details when the mouse is hovered over keywords. That's the blurb from the website. Personally, I find it to do pretty much everything I want. Plus the developer seems to really want feedback to make it the perfect script editor and puts out constant updates. Excellent. Oh and it's free to download, but worth a donation.

SubEthaEdit (OSX)

SubEthaEdit is know for its collaborative features over the bonjour network.
