Editors' Review

If you're looking for a low-cost alternative to expensive Web design suites, look no further than Coda from Panic Software. This one-window Web design app has all the tools you need for creating great Web sites. Collaboration tools let you seamlessly work together with others, and an integrated FTP sidebar-- using the power of Panic's Transmit--helps you get your site updated quickly. Hand coding experts will like the full-featured CSS and text editors, with tools that are always only a click away. Time savers like the Clips feature make frequently used code handy and convenient. We particularly like the powerful Find and Replace tools which let you drag-and-drop global changes to your code. If you're searching for a reasonably priced Web design tool for Mac, Coda has plenty of handy tools to help you get your site up and running quickly.

"Web Development For The Rest Of Us"

September 09, 2008  |  By Mixotic

 |  Version: Coda 1.5


As a tool for managing day-to-day changes to sites, it's invaluable. It offers easy access to the files, with a local and remote file repository, terminal access to servers, color-coded code, and a wealth of great resources in the library.


Changing configurations to adjust to changes can be a little more tedious (having to reopen the site). It took me a while to figure out that I could open multiple windows for different sites, but that's my own lack of intelligence.


If you're a developer looking for a better way to work, this could be the solution. It's a great integration of tools that work with industry standards and best practices. No crazy markup from some company that decided they know how to 'fix' code.

"Best Web Development App For Mac!"

September 04, 2008  |  By Matt297

 |  Version: Coda 1.5


It comes with the Transmit Turbo-FTP Engine, makes editing your code seem so elegant, has tons of useful features (find and replace, css editor, built-in books, code snippets) and is just an all around pleasure to use.


Sometimes the syntax highlighting and auto completion can be a bit "wonky" when you're using mixed languages (HTML inside PHP).


Coda is hands down the best web development tool that I have ever used for a Mac. It has loads of nifty features in addition to all the standard stuff. The built-in books make it easy to lookup syntax from your favourite coding languages and the Transmit Turbo-FTP Engine allows for quick and painless FTP uploading/updating and editing of files as you work.

The find and replace is a step ahead of it's competitors with the ability to add in "variables" for your searching and the code snippets feature allows you to easily store bits of code so you can easily reuse the code again and again without all the typing.

The way they've done the "Sites" portion of Coda is absolute genius! It divides up everything you do into individual "Sites" that way all your information regarding a certain website or project is individually stored in the "Site" and it is only accessible when you're editing the corresponding "Site", otherwise it's conveniently stored away for your next use.

The variety of editors that are included just blow you away and have an extremely diverse set of functionality so that you have a tool for every situation (normal code editor with support for syntax highlighting of many different languages, a css editor that requires no css knowledge whatsoever, a terminal console so you can easily login via SSH to your websites, and a preview tool that will let you view your files in the browser of your choice).

Oh, and the beautiful graphics/animations are a nice touch!

All in all, Coda is simply the best web development app that I've used for Mac and I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone (professionals and newbies alike)!
