Here are a few links for people looking to use TextWrangler as an R editor.

I haven't ever tried these since I don't use TextWrangler/BBEdit, so
hopefully they work for you:

(1) Sending commands from TW to R:

(2) "really" colorizing R code. This is an "R language module for BBEdit":

Hope that helps,
