Is it a joke or Coda actually choose to go with that color and font comb?
I had the feeling Coda was trying to kill my eyes.
I want to love Coda, I really do. But ST3 + Codekit is just so much leaner and quicker (for me).
There is a CodeKit plugin on panic.com/coda
I used to love Coda, in version 1. The version 2 release killed it for me. It has so many problems, and took a huge step away from a modern workflow. I wrote a lengthy review at the time, and switched to Sublime. After 2 years with Sublime, there is no question that I made the right choice.
Really nice update. And, I’m so glad to now have a direct download rather than a Mac App Store version (hooray faster updates and being able to migrate to new Macs easier!).
Doesn't having purchased apps off the app store make migrating to a new computer easier though?
Nope, not in my experience.
I’d rather be able to copy the app across from another drive or use Migration Assistant to take care of it automatically. Often way faster than re-downloading from the Mac App Store.
Curious to know how this compares to Sublime Text.
I was looking at Coda 2 just yesterday and didn't really see any compelling reason to make the switch. I'm genuinely curious too, not trying to start a flame war between the two.
They're kinda very different things. Coda's a more fully-featured IDE compared to a text editor like Sublime Text.
So it's slower, but it also has a lot of great "power features" and things built in that would usually be managed externally like version control and an SSH prompt. The remote editing is a particularly useful feature for my work.
Thanks for the reply Dan. I'll take another look at Coda then, as version control is very much something I need.
Panic Sync and Site-wide auto complete are awesome. Really great for SASS variables.
I just hope emmet gets fixed for it. I've been on Coda 6 years now and that's almost a deal-breaker for me.
FINALLY. if only for panic sync (which is awesome).
