BBEdit has a similar capability called  `Text Factory'

Yes for both for BBEdit.
BBEdit is a paid for software but has a free `lite' version called 
Text Wrangler but I don't know if this has the Text Factory or not 
You can check this on their website or just download Text Wrangler 
and see. It does have multifile search and replace though, including 
regular expression and  automator support so you might be able to 
simulate the Text factory features.
