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.”

Well it WAS a downer. The least I could say is that they are responsive. They answered my complaint by mail and also fixed it in 1.02 (now you can publish individual files to the correct place).

Definitely looking better and better here :-)

Hmm... If that is so, I think it's definitely a downer... (defaulting to root, if sub-folders doesn't exist on the remote server sounds really odd. It should warn the user about missing directories and provide an optional choice to proceed. Otherwise it could virtually lead to disaster, or at least a total mess.)

PS: According to a recent email from Panic, the fact that upload always copies to root is the intended behaviour. I still hate it but at least it's not a random bug.

I wouldn't say it's quite ready yet but it's definitely worth its price (or will be once some issues are addressed). I bought it when it came out because it was a very mac like solution for what I needed.

On the whole the UI and all is great. It feels great to use it. The editor isn't worth textmate yet but the upload feature sure is very useful.

The reason I don't use it daily is that in the current version if you right-click a file in a subfolder and click upload it doesn't create the missing directories over there. It just uploads the file in the root directory. Guess what happens when you do this with a file named index.php in some subfolder.. ahem. Well, young software needs to make experiences :-) I am not touching this until this is fixed. Not sure if it happens with normal FTP but it surely happens with SFTP. I reported it already.

Short said, to use it on a daily basis I need:
- Quick PHP validation (à la TextMate, just display a tooltip confirming it's ok)
- Someone please fix that awful right-click upload problem described above. I am just too afraid to use the app until this is fixed.
- When I call the doc on some function, I want the doc to still be there if I go back to the edit window and go back to the help window.

That said, great start Panic people, go on :-)

even though i'm a hardcore BBEdit user, i picked this up...YES, FOR $80. considering all it does, that's a good deal. with the 1.0.1 update they addressed some of the issues i had with the app already, like being able to use a "localhost" url so i can preview my PHP pages.

Beautiful, sure, but it doesn't offer anything that would make me consider changing my established workflow.

dreamweaver is pretty bad compare to this.. unless you're a n00b using the buggy visual thing at the bottom of dreamweaver to do your CSS instead of knowing how to handcode.

What an absolutely beautiful product! I can't wait to watch this mature. If money weren't quite so tight right now, I'd buy it just to test it out on a few projects. I really like all the integration.

My biggest concern is the fact that I've grown to love TextMate. I will have to watch the development of the editor function to see if I can afford to switch to it.

Thumbs up, Panic!!!!

The biggest hindrances for me are that the syntax highlighting is buggy with PHP and it does not recognize single-quoted attributes in html, and it ONLY supports (S)FTP/SSH, but if you're connecting to your servers via a network drive you're pretty much screwed with this app. And, what, no support for using a local dev server? I want to preview my sites before I make them live. I realize there are other ways of doing this, but why not just support something as simple as preview using http://localhost/?

Otherwise it's super-purdy and just feels nice. The code hinting is nice. Now imagine if it was able to parse php as you type like some other IDEs? www.phpeclise.net anyone? I'm just looking for an excuse to use this. Unfortunately, it seems to immature right now.

I have been playing around with this for the past few days and it is definitely a useful addition to Transmit, TextMate and CSSEdit which I use already. It needs time but considring it has just been launched, I find the features impressive.
