Coda Review




Coda LogoCoda by Panic is my first online purchased Application for my MacBook Pro, This is perfect tools for web developer like me, Coda features is perfect for my daily use and Coda prices is reasonable. Before I decided to purchased this application, I was looking arround and finding some review about Coda. And here some review from blogger.

Review From Quarter Life Crisis

Coda appears to be a well programmed and stable piece of software for a 1.0 version. And I am thrilled to have the well-integrated environment which removes that extra degree of separation between my editing and the web server while offering good auto-completion and instant validation. After using Coda for real, I started running into situations where I found the one-window-per-site concept limiting. Unlike the other glitches and possibly even the disappointing CSS editor which I am positive Panic will improve over time by slaving away at the code, the single-window issue will require some rethinking and possibly even changes to the UI concept as it exists today.

Review from MacUpdate

But all in all, this is a terrific program that just helped me through a complicated project quite ably, even though I was using the demo (how awesome that it’s totally not crippled). It might be hard to justify purchasing it since I already have a great FTP program and a great text editor, but I’m sure a few more upgrades and development cycles will make it irresistible

Review from

Hardcore administrators will revel in the Terminal window for managing servers, but for the rest of us, the Transmit-based FTP client will be about as close as we get to playing with the server directly. This shares a pane with the site tree and treats your remote files as though they were local, opening them with a single click, or dispatching them to helper applications from a context-sensitive menu.

If you’re a dedicated hand-coder, or are ready to step up from Dreamweaver’s built-in code-based environment, Coda is an excellent choice. As one MacUser team member said in the office, it’s one of those apps that could make a PC user switch. We don’t think that’s too high praise at all.

Review from MacApper

I do web development pretty much every day and have never been a real fan of the all inclusive, live editing types of tools. Honestly tools like Dreamweaver really makes me cringe. So like many others I normally have a separate application for text editing, FTP, shell, and of course a few browsers open. I have to tell you, I’ve taken the red pill now and doing away with all of these separate tools actually seems possible with Coda.

Review from Shawn Blanc

Coda is most certainly not bloated. If anything it could be argued the opposite – that Coda’s features are too skimpy.

However, put yourself in the developer’s shoes for moment. You’re going to take a Text Editor, CSS Editor, FTP client and a Terminal app. Then bundle them together, add a WebKit based prievewer and debugger, and offer some good documentation of PHP, CSS, Javascript and HTML. And finally: sell it for less than the cost of just a good text editor.
