Update:Barebones support got back to me and explained why this wasn’t working, this method broke their codesigning. But they had a solution: Simply go to File > New > FTP/SFTP Browser. Thanks Barebones!


Edit: Darn, I’m getting this error when trying to open remote documents: (MacOS Error code: -25293)

When I’m working on two projects at once, or want to grab a remote file from FTP when I already have one FTP site open, it would be nice to run two instances of TextWrangler at once, since it only supports having one FTP site open at a time.

I figured out how:

-Go to Applications/ and right click on TextWrangler and select Duplicate.
-Rename Textwrangler copy to Textwrangler2
-Right click on Textwrangler and choose “Show Package Contents”
-Open info.plist inside the Contents folder
-Change the data from

	<key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
	<string>com.barebones.textwrangler</string>



to

	<key>CFBundleIdentifier<</key>
	<string>com.barebones.textwrangler2</string>



Now you can open both TextWrangler apps.


Optionally, grab this snazzy textwrangler alternative icon from this page:

Right click and choose "copy image". Then get info on TextWrangler2, click on the small icon in the top right, and hit command-V to paste. That way it's easy to tell the two instances apart in the Dock and switching between applications.
