TextMate is a popular text editor for OS X.

(for those of us not lucky enough to have a mac, check out e for a similar application)

One of the most interesting features is the ability to define "snippets", abbreviations which can be expanded into larger blocks of text containing placeholders. TextMate organizes most of its features -- including snippets, macros, templates, and drag-and-drop behaviors -- into language-specific "bundles."

There's a Django bundle, though it's not among the ones included with the application; you have to fetch it from the repository. It handles both Django templates and Django Python code. The bundle's Python snippets are built for the magic-removal branch of Django.

The Django-Python syntax in particular is a work in progress, and suggestions and contributions are welcome.
