Coda 2 (and Coda on iPad)!

Uncategorized No Comment

NewImageIn news that will only interest me: Coda 2 and Diet Coda are coming out this week.

What is Coda? It’s the app I use to do all my web development. It does text editing and FTP all in one. It also does a bunch of other things that I should probably use more.

I’ve been using it for a while with no updates. There are all sorts of things I’d like to be able to do with it. File management is a pain. It doesn’t autocomplete my own functions. I hope these are a little better in the new version.

It looks like I’m going to like the enhanced CSS features and the code clips. I think code clips are already available, but I never used them and they look to be more easily accessible in the new version. I’m very interested to see if the MySQL editor works with my setup and if AirPreview (real-time edits show up on iPad) works as well.

I haven’t looked too hard for an iPad app that does similar things. I haven’t ever really needed it, but have considered that at some point I’d need to update something on the go. Of course, that means an iPhone version is what I really need. Still, I’m in for the iPad app.

My only concern now is how much this will all cost. Since it’s going on the Mac App Store, there isn’t a hope of an upgrade price. The first day both apps will be 50% off I think that means less than $40 for Mac and $10 for iPad.
