Favorite JSON Editor and SCP Client on Mac?

Recommended Posts

Looking for some recommendations here.  I've historically used Windows first, Linux second, Mac when required too.  But I have been assigned a Mac at work, a partner on a side project (who is not technical) is on a Mac, and I'll be developing an iPhone application soon.


So, for an SCP client.  I use WinSCP on Windows, and it's awesome.  I've started using muCommander on my work Mac and it's okay.  Not as intuitive for selecting multiple files, and seems to need an extra click if you switch to it from another program, but functional for the basic "drag files from one folder to a remote one" task.  Are there better ones I'm not aware of?  Free is ideal but a low cost is not necessarily a dealbreaker, a subscription probably is.  Must be easy for a non-technical person to use for uploading files to a server.


For a JSON editor, similar case, I've shown my side project partner JSON in Notepad++ and he said that's fine and easy enough to understand, but what's a good program for it on Mac?  I know VSCode exists on Mac and that's the best option I know of now, but is there anything more text-editor-y than IDE-light-y?  Preferably with syntax validation, I know missing commas are going to be the bane of our existence if that functionality doesn't exist.
