Coda

Version: 2.0 || Release Date: 2012-05-24 || License: Shareware ($99) Developer: Panic | App Owner: kris33

So, we code web sites by hand. And one day, it hit us: our web workflow was wonky. We’d have our text editor open, with Transmit open to save files to the server. We’d be previewing in Safari, running queries in Terminal, using a CSS editor, and reading references on the web. “This could be easier,” we realized. “And much cooler.”

This now has SVN integration built in!! AMAZING!
Went from sitting idly by in favor of TextMate to using it every day!

Wonderful editor just wish it had a dedicated live preview window and a better visual CSS editor. Even still, it's a pleasure to use and it's probably the best all around web IDE on the Mac.

This is $99 now, i really enjoy coda, i love how easy it makes to work on remote server(ftp) like it was on your desktop.

I agree with the other guys feature requests, I dont use the preview window or css editor because they are abit useless, for preview it is just as easy to hit refresh in your browser.

The css editor only works on external style sheets, with no live preview.

Great app for the ones who know how to code by HAND, making the cleanest code.

Hands down, the best tool for hand-coding websites on any platform. Been using it since the private beta and it just gets better and better with each release. It sits in my workflow alongside Dreamweaver CS4 and CSSEdit.

I just bought it, but I'm still wishig for this:

1.) Faster and automatic refresh in the Preview window (already said)

2.) Remembering opened windows and their settings when you quit/reopen the app.

3.) Sported mouse-wheel support for rolling/editing values like in CSS Edit.

4.) Added the same Preview/Code Switch button in the lower left corner of the window, in the Edit window, as there is in Preview window.

5.) Speed!!! Try to achieve same speed as CSS Edit.

I use Coda every single day. It's a gorgeous app and it's made by an extremely responsive company. That said, it's just missing quite a lot of features for that $79 price tag.

1. No dedicated (live) preview window. Sure CSS Edit has spoiled me, but this is a great feature and I'd like to be able to see what I'm working on. Coda simply isn't built for dual monitors.

2. No site-wide find and replace. You can only search and replace items on your opened document.

3. The DOM inspector is pretty useless. Highlighting your code doesn't highlight the element in preview, nor does selecting in the DOM inspector highlight your code.

Coda is good but it could be much, much better.

Like others have said, Coda's a treat to use. As a professional web developer, I can say Coda is easily worth the money. The preview and CSS editors are throwaway features, but nice to have anyways.

For the developer on a budget, check out skEdit instead. Has a lot of the same features, but in a less pretty package.

I've never liked TextMate... I find it too generic for the type of work I do.

I'm a pro web developer, who does all my sites by hand, and it is absolutely worth the price. A pleasure to work with. I was one of the people who use to use transmit + textmate, but this is a much better experience. A must buy for any pro.

A well-designed piece of software that will certainly streamline your workflow. The text editor is not as feature-rich as textmate and the current editor is also a bit more buggy than I would have liked for a $79 purchase - occasionally my view turns into a bunch of garbage characters. But it's a harmless inconvenience and the occasional restart doesn't detract from my experience too much. 99% of the time it's saving me time and allowing me to focus on coding.
