I tried to install Kate on a Mac. Well, it is possible, but you need quite a bit of knowledge of command lines, patience, perseverance and about 4 GB of disk space. Yes, because you need Xcode developer tooks, Fink and KDE... Kate is cool, but lacks macros. Just go for jEdit that is available for Win, Mac, Linux and also on a multiplatform Java installer.

Kate can be run on Mac OS X as well. Check http://mac.kde.org/ (requirements: KDE or a subset thereof, and Qt installed).
