"Great multifunctional piece of software, needs an update to stay on top"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Coda in my opinion are its great FTP capabilities and the Panic Sync function, which allows me to keep everything nice and in sync between my various Macs and iPads.

What do you dislike?

Other tools have now better code editors (Sublime Text 3, Microsoft VS Code) with multiple selection, go-to-anything shortcuts etc. and support full app-scope color themes in a better way than Coda. The FTP integration, while truly great, could still use some further advancements (like being able to see the full file upload/download queue, stop/resume it, etc.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda may be the only tool you need for creating, editing and maintaining websites. It is mainly a great code editor with a lot of built in features (reference docs for various languages, a full MySQL database editor, (s)FTP abilities, cloud sync among devices, etc.) and you'd be hard pressed to find something that offers all this in a neat package. It is also very mature now and it almost never crashes and can handle everything you can throw at it. Some other tools may be better under this or that specific, but I think nothing beats the Coda 2 package in the features-for-the-price ratio.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coda has been main work tool for 6 years now, and I can't think about replacing it with anything else. Almost all my work is done with it, and it's stable, fast, intuitive and (did I already mention it?) has a great FTP integration.

"The best option for a professional developer"

What do you like best?

Coda is made by developers for Developers. It is very easy to understand the philosophy behind every functionality embedded in the application, and if you are a web developer then you will really appreciate it.

What I like about Coda is to be able to edit code easily in a clean and simple editor, as well as being able to access FTP. Once connected to the server, having my files ready and my design in mind, I'm completely ready. I've been tempted by other applications like Sublime Text, but I always go back to Coda because it has everything I need. It may seem basic, simple and sweet, but it's Perfect.

What do you dislike?

I would appreciate a dark theme for the program since I prefer to work with dark themes, but this is just a preference.

also, Sometimes I would like Coda to have a light version for the desktop, when I just need to edit a file I always turn to a second editor that helps with the load of the computer and the time it takes to make changes so Small.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda can be one of your most valuable assets in the developer toolbox, save you time and headaches by using too complex IDEs or any other online Solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to create code from scratch with ease, and also edit what others have Done. It also keeps me up to the point of what I do instead of jumping on the Screen. It was great when I was coding more from scratch, and when I came back to that area, I could resume the software Again. Another benefit is that it is not as resource intensive as other programs that I really appreciate.

"Best IDE to date"

What do you like best?

Coda is easy and complex at the same time, some of the good capabilities it offers is that you can have a complete list of your full buyers base and make adjustments anywhere and anytime. Coda offers all the equipment to run and maintain an Internet site, which consists in the control of the database.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I would like Coda to have a weight reduction plan version for the computer, when I just want to edit a document, I always turn to a second editor that is simple, which makes it easier to load the computer and the time it takes to make small changes. .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda can be one of each of its assets with the maximum value in the Developer Toolbox, it will avoid time and hassle by using too complex IDE or any other online response.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Coda, you should no longer consider each password for each thing on all the websites I paint. Coda buys everything and is always just a click away.

"Coda sigue siendo la mejor opción para cualquier desarrollador serio."

What do you like best?

Coda está hecho por desarrolladores para desarrolladores. Es muy fácil entender la filosofía detrás de cada funcionalidad incrustada en la aplicación, y si usted es un desarrollador web entonces realmente lo apreciará.

Lo que más me gusta de Coda es poder editar código fácilmente en un editor limpio y sencillo, además de poder tener acceso a FTP. Una vez conectado al servidor, al tener mis archivos listos y mi diseño en mente, estoy completamente listo. He estado tentado otras aplicaciones como Sublime Text, pero siempre vuelvo a Coda porque tiene todo lo que necesito. Puede parecer básico, simple y dulce, pero es perfecto.

What do you dislike?

Los únicos problemas que he encontrado parecen ocurrir cuando intento editar o eliminar archivos como un lote. Además, la interfaz para cambiar los permisos del servidor necesita funcionar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A pesar de ser muy similar a las demás opciones gratuitas que están disponibles, su facilidad de uso y sus amplias herramientas hacen que este programa vale la pena la compra.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Soy capaz de crear código desde cero con facilidad, y también editar lo que otros han hecho. También me mantiene al tanto de lo que hago en lugar de saltar por la pantalla. Fue genial cuando estaba codificando más desde cero, y al volver a esa área, podría retomar el software de nuevo. Otro beneficio es que no es tan intensivo en recursos como otros programas que realmente aprecio.

"Programación simple y eficaz"

What do you like best?

Lo más destacado de Coda es que puedes codificar y ver tus resultados dentro del programa. En la mayoría de los programas de codificación tienes que dejar y mirar tu código en un navegador web y luego presionar la herramienta de inspección para aprender más sobre por qué o qué quieres cambiar. Coda tiene todo esto integrado en una interfaz sencilla.

What do you dislike?

Agradecería un tema oscuro para el programa puesto que prefiero trabajar con temas oscuros, pero esto es solo una preferencia.

Además, a veces me gustaría que Coda tuviera una versión light para el escritorio, cuando sólo necesito editar un archivo siempre recurro a un segundo editor que ayuda con la carga del ordenador y el tiempo que toma hacer cambios tan pequeños.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda puede ser uno de sus activos más valiosos en la caja de herramientas para desarrolladores, le ahorrará tiempo y dolores de cabeza al utilizar IDEs demasiado complejos o cualquier otra solución en línea.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Como describí anteriormente, usar Coda para poder ver los resultados en lugar de refrescar la ventana del navegador te ahorra tiempo al saltar de un lado a otro.

"Fast, Clean, and Powerful"

What do you like best?

One of the best new features in Coda 2 has to be the Panic Sync. Panic Sync makes it easy to sync your sites, passwords, and private keys to all of your Macs at no extra cost. Coda 2 helps you develop programs in CSS, CSS3, HTML, HTML5, JavaScript and PHP.

What do you dislike?

The first negative i found in Coda 2 that became obvious was that nearly everything takes a click or two more than it did in Coda 1, and all those extra clicks add up. But that's just me nitpicking.

The other issue i have is when you open a site, before any files from it are opened, I’m presented with three panes: the local files, then the local files again, then the remote files. Just take me to the files.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda 2 is a great product for any developer, the features out of the box are more than adequate for your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrated version control has been greatly improved with the addition of Git to the already present Subversion control. This helps with keeping everything in sync across multiple developers which makes overwriting a thing of the past.

"All In One Web Development"

What do you like best?

Being able to update my code and publish to production in one app. Being able to stay in one app for almost all of my web development is a huge timesaver.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there's nothing I dislike about this product. If I had to come up with a complaint, I guess I could say that the syntax highlighting is slowish on huge files, but I'd expect that of any code editor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. If you do web development on a Mac, Coda is the tool you should be using.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are very few good web development code editors out there, but Coda is excellent. It provides nearly perfect syntax highlighting for PHP, HTML, JavaScript, and more. Beyond that, its integrated terminal access, database management, and S/FTP uploading are incredibly useful and save tons of time every single day.

""Extraordinary multifunctional bit of programming, needs an update to remain on top""

What do you like best?

The best thing about Coda as I would see it are its incredible FTP abilities and the Panic Sync work, which enables me to keep everything pleasant and in a state of harmony between my different Macs and iPads.

What do you dislike?

Different instruments have now better code editors (Sublime Text 3, Microsoft VS Code) with various choice, go-to-anything alternate routes and so forth and bolster full application scope shading topics in a superior manner than Coda. The FTP reconciliation, while genuinely incredible, could in any case utilize some further progressions (like having the capacity to see the full record transfer/download line, stop/continue it, and so on.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda might be the main apparatus you requirement for making, altering and looking after sites. It is fundamentally an incredible code proofreader with a great deal of implicit highlights (reference docs for different dialects, a full MySQL database editorial manager, (s)FTP capacities, cloud match up among gadgets, and so forth.) and you'd be unable to discover something that offers this in a slick bundle. It is likewise exceptionally experienced now and it never crashes and can deal with all that you can toss at it. Some different instruments might be better under either explicit, however I think nothing beats the Coda 2 bundle in the highlights at the-cost proportion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coda has been principle work apparatus for a long time now, and I can't consider supplanting it with whatever else. Practically the entirety of my work is finished with it, and it's steady, quick, natural and (did I as of now notice it?) has an extraordinary FTP joining.

"Coda Review - all you need for web coding"

What do you like best?

Appearance

For a start it is worth noting that the application functions in one window, which helps to concentrate on the work itself. Coda is divided into 3 zones: a functional menu, a file manager and a work area. The functional menu contains 6 tabs: Sites, Edit, Preview, CSS, Terminal, Books.

What do you dislike?

The disadvantages include the obviously rather big program cost of $ 99.

The Coda application can be purchased on the developer’s website, as well as in the Mac App Store. Before purchasing the program, we traditionally recommend downloading a free trial version of the application, which will work without restrictions for 15 days.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda turned out to be a pretty good application, successfully combining a thoughtful design, an excellent FTP client, a convenient CSS editor, and other functions. Given the audience of users for whom the program is intended, the absence of the Russian language will have practically no effect on the convenience of its development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is clear that the prices for creating a website are now quite affordable, but if you need complete control over the process of layout and filling with content, you should start creating your own site. And Coda is great in this - it’s not just a program, but a whole range of tools useful for web development. Judge for yourself - the application combines a powerful FTP client, a decent CSS editor, a terminal, source code editing tools (a classic editor), and many other functions.

""The best alternative in the event that you are designer""

What do you like best?

The feature of Coda is that you can code and see your outcomes inside the program. In most coding projects you need to leave and take a gander at your code in an internet browser and after that press the investigation device to become familiar with why or what you need to change. Coda has this coordinated in a basic interface.What I like about Coda is to almost certainly alter code effectively in a spotless and straightforward proofreader, just as having the capacity to get to FTP. When associated with the server, having my documents prepared and my structure at the top of the priority list, I'm totally prepared. I've been enticed by different applications like

What do you dislike?

The principal negative I found in Coda 2 that wound up evident was that almost everything takes a tick or two more than it did in Coda 1, and each one of those additional snaps include. In any case, that is simply me nitpicking.The other issue I have is the point at which you open a site, before any documents from it are opened, I'm given three sheets: the nearby records, at that point the neighborhood records once more, at that point the remote records. Simply take me to the documents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. On the off chance that you do web advancement on a Mac, Coda is the instrument you ought to be using.Overall Coding Platforms are Preferences yet it has a ton of highlights.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Incorporated adaptation control has been significantly improved with the expansion of Git to the officially present Subversion control. This assists with keeping everything in a state of harmony over different engineers which makes overwriting a thing of the past.There are not very many great web advancement code editors out there, however Coda is superb. It gives almost flawless punctuation featuring to PHP, HTML, JavaScript, and then some. Past that, its coordinated terminal access, database the executives, and S/FTP transferring are staggeringly valuable and spare huge amounts of time each and every day.

"Superb IDE"

What do you like best?

Coda is made by designers for engineers. It is extremely straightforward the rationality behind each usefulness installed in the application, and on the off chance that you are a web engineer, at that point you will truly welcome it.

What I like about Coda is to almost certainly alter code effectively in a spotless and basic editorial manager, just as having the capacity to get to FTP. When associated with the server, having my documents prepared and my plan as a main priority, I'm totally prepared. I've been enticed by different applications like.

In most coding projects you need to leave and take a gander at your code in an internet browser and after that press the examination instrument to get familiar with why or what you need to change. Coda has this coordinated in a basic interface.

What do you dislike?

I would welcome a dull topic for the program since I want to work with dim subjects, however this is only an inclination.

Moreover, some of the time I might want Coda to have a light form for the work area, when I just need to alter a document I generally utilize a second editorial manager that assists with stacking the PC and the time it takes to roll out such little improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an excellent tool to start in case you are a front-end person (developer). Coda coding proves to be extremely beneficial for Internet developers working on OS X Coda: a splendid device that replaces a number of other computers with which it should be connected one after the other.

If you are a developer, you will sure love Coda.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives almost impeccable sentence structure featuring to PHP, HTML, JavaScript, and that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Coordinated adaptation control has been incredibly enhanced with the expansion of Git to the effectively present Subversion control. This assists with keeping everything in a state of harmony over various engineers which makes overwriting a relic of past times. As a Web Developer, I'm ready to switch between ventures in a moment. Coda has influenced my stir effectiveness to go up in any event 7x. I know there are programming bundles out there that are practically identical, yet the convenience and cordial GUI make Coda a fundamental apparatus to my work.

"Coda is awesome!"

What do you like best?

I've tried many IDEs and text editors, and I've fallen in love with the ease of use with Coda. Coda not only makes coding websites a lot easier, but it is also a great tool for managing sites (both local and remote), working with repositories, and testing out database queries. The ability to write your own plugins is also a huge plus.

What do you dislike?

I have few dislikes, and anytime I've had a problem with Coda, the Panic support team is quick to help fix the problem. With that said, my current dislike is a random bug that happens when uploading files. It's only happened twice out of thousands of uploads, but when it happens I can't upload any of my files in whole and it even overwrites the files on the server, yet the program acts as if the file was uploaded correctly. I have contacted support, and they are looking into it -- I couldn't provide them with much details on this reported issue or else I'm positive it would be fixed (if it's even an error on their end).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out Panic's other software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a Web Developer, I'm able to switch between projects in an instant. Coda has made my work efficiency go up at least 10x. I know there are software packages out there that are comparable, but the ease of use and friendly GUI make Coda an essential tool to my work.

"Unique and usable IDE"

What do you like best?

The integrated FTP sidebar and file publishing feature, combined with auto upload on save make editing a site on an external server seamless.

The search feature is also very powerful, the results are displayed really well and it makes finding code across an entire site very fast and intuitive.

If you're working on a static website (i.e. HTML?CSS), the live preview is excellent. You can even inspect it like you can in Safari/Chrome etc, which brings you entire editing workflow into one place. You might want a decent size screen though.

Split screen editing is excellent in Coda, you can have different files side by side or even the same file (e.g. you might want to see the top of your file where you might have variable listed for instance while you work on a function further down).

What do you dislike?

I sometimes get a bit lost when moving around the local file system in the sidebar - you can browse anywhere on your system in the sidebar rather than just the directory assigned to the site, which I think is where it gets a bit messy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A coding platform we can use among a team of front-end developers who prefer a modern UI compared to apps like TextWrangler, and without having to buy Adobe CC licenses for Dreamweaver.

"Great for the designer/coder"

What do you like best?

The uncluttered interface. Unlike a lot of coding tools, Coda is sensitive to bloat. The coding pane is clean, the code folding is intuitive, and the features that are only sometimes used - file upload, SCM, etc... - are easily hidden.

What do you dislike?

It's harder than it should be to "share" or backup site info; I have two laptops and have yet to find an easy way to copy site info from one to the other, other than cut and paste. I'd think Panic would support account-level site sharing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it, you'll probably like it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For those of us not ready for Sublime or some of the other weightier coding solutions, Coda is a nice balance.

"Clean Coding"

What do you like best?

The Best featured in coda I like is that you can code and view your results all inside the program. Most coding programs you have to leave and look at your code in a web browser and then press the inspect tool to learn more on why or what your want to change. Coda has this all built in to one simple interface. Code then press another tab to view your results where you then have the ability to inspect and see the console.

What do you dislike?

I could be missing something but I like a darker theme interface to code. This is just a personal preference

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall Coding Platforms are Preferences but it does have a lot of features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I described earlier using Coda to be able to view the results instead of refreshing the browser window saves you time from jumping back and forth.

" One of the best software for web developments"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to use and the ability to use plugins and themes make work so much easier and for the price, you can't beat it.

What do you dislike?

There is not much negative to say about Coda. Over the years Coda has expanded and improved and only continues to do so over time. If I had to choose a con it would be that it does not have more tools or features, but to me that is what I like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda is an option for experienced developers if you do not want to use much more complex software for cloud developments

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a front-end developer and I have been using coda for about 2 years now. There are many different kinds of coding software that do a lot of different things. For me, Coda does what it does well with no bloat. The plugins allow me to keep my code clean.

Al igual que el control del sitio y las funciones de publicación de automóviles, hace que el código sea más rápido. Me encanta la capacidad de escribir código suave y bien formateado con un práctico vehículo completo y incorporado en la publicación de FTP. Lo que disfruto de Coda es la organización de tareas dentro del tablero de instrumentos y dentro de cada misión. Esta aplicación lo tiene todo en relación con el disfrutar de la codificación

Probablemente, mucho menos conciencia sobre marketing Se adapta a mis propósitos, no diría que siempre hay algo que no me gusta. Es un poco caro. Cosas simples como los lugares de marcadores en su código parecen ser hacks

Bien vale la pena el financiamiento. Ya no lo uso, sin embargo, es una región excelente para comenzar en caso de que usted sea una persona de front-end.

"the best if your are a developer"

What do you like best?

Coda is simple and complex in the meantime, a portion of the great abilities it offers is that you can have a total rundown of your full purchasers base and make alterations anyplace and whenever. Coda offers all the hardware to run and keep up an Internet website, which comprises in the control of the database.

What do you dislike?

In some cases I might want Coda to have a weight decrease plan form for the PC, when I simply need to alter a report, I generally swing to a second proofreader that is basic, which makes it simpler to stack the PC and the time it takes to roll out little improvements. .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda can be one of every one of its advantages with the most extreme incentive in the Developer Toolbox, it will maintain a strategic distance from time and bother by utilizing excessively complex IDE or some other online reaction.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Coda, you should never again consider every secret key for every thing on every one of the sites I paint. Coda purchases everything and is in every case only a tick away.

"Great software for coding / development"

What do you like best?

I love the snippets function. I can easily save little bits of code I use often, which saves me a ton of time. And it's easy to organize those snippets, so they're easy to find.

What do you dislike?

I've been using it for years, and never really had any problems that I remember. I mainly do front-end stuff though, primarily HTML/CSS, so not sure if there are issues I'm unaware of, but for my needs, it's been great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great program and helps me save time. I'd recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps me code web design projects in an organized way. The snippets function helps me save time and money.

"Coda is the best!"

What do you like best?

The visualization of the code is just right. Coda makes it easy to insert HTML and CSS tags. It is also very lightweight in terms of CPU usage. Coda is definitely the best HTML editor for Mac, trust me Ive tried a lot!

What do you dislike?

The program tends to crash sometimes when multiple files are open. When that happens, you lose all of your latest revisions to the code, so be sure to save FREQUENTLY.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your research. See what else is out there before you decide on an HTML editor. I guarantee you'll come back to Coda.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coda makes simple HTML tasks easy without the bloatedness that is Adobe Dreamweaver. The UI keeps it simple and it helps us reach our deadlines in time. What a great product. I am a huge fan.

"Todo en uno para el desarrollo de software"

What do you like best?

Coda es fácil y complejo al mismo tiempo, algunas de las buenas capacidades que ofrece es que puede tener una lista completa de su base de compradores completa y hacer ajustes en cualquier lugar y en cualquier momento. Coda ofrece todo el equipo para ejecutar y mantener un sitio de Internet, que consiste en el control de la base de datos.

What do you dislike?

A veces me gustaría que Coda tuviera una versión de plan de reducción de peso para la computadora, cuando solo quiero editar un documento, siempre recurro a un segundo editor que es simple, lo que facilita la carga de la computadora y el tiempo que toma hacer pequeños cambios. .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda puede ser uno de cada uno de sus activos con el valor máximo en la caja de herramientas del desarrollador, evitará tiempo y complicaciones al usar IDE demasiado complejos o cualquier otra respuesta en línea.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con Coda, ya no debería tener en cuenta cada contraseña para cada cosa en todos los sitios web en los que pinto. Coda compra todo y siempre está a un clic de distancia.

"All-in-one for visual designers"

What do you like best?

Coda is an all-in-one product that allows you to code, ftp and view your website all in the same place. I love seeing changes in real-time and the ease of use.

What do you dislike?

It seems clunky at times. I wish there were ways to customize the tools even more. Especially when it comes to the web inspector. I don't need to see the console information and some of the other things but cannot remove them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

More customization and tutorials

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Coda streamlines the process of web design by allowing visually oriented designers to see the changes immediately. Until I found Coda, I used sublime text, which is a great editor. Now I don't have to jump from one program to the next to code, ftp, and visualize.

"Incuestionable software excepcional para codificadores difíciles"

What do you like best?

Coda es mi programa de software de codificación de visitas con acceso FTP incluido y una interfaz simplista para el consumidor. No se ha bloqueado ni una vez y la función de pestañas es increíble. Coda actualiza constantemente su programa de software y garantiza que todo se ejecute fácilmente en todo momento. Coda gestiona grandes cargas masivas con grandeza y de ninguna manera tiene problemas, puedo agregar un sitio web completo sin problemas en ningún aspecto.

What do you dislike?

A veces, aunque quiera salir de un inicio de sesión, se bloqueará y se mantendrá, sin embargo, esa es una prevalencia sin precedentes y solo mientras haya algo de interés dentro de la carga adicional o desactualizada. La descarga de documentos desde el servidor puede hacer que mi Coda se bloquee de vez en cuando, no estoy muy seguro si eso es una dificultad con mi versión o sistema operativo, pero en ocasiones puede colapsar y moverse extremadamente lento. Además de este pequeño problema, no tengo ningún disgusto sobre el programa de software. Siempre ha sido suave.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si está buscando una interfaz de usuario simplista, facilidad de uso y confiabilidad, la apariencia no es similar a la de Coda.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Las ventajas de Coda son sobresalientes. Con este programa de software, podemos controlar a todos nuestros clientes a continuación en el techo. Coda organiza bien cada inicio de sesión de FTP y guarda toda la información y los currículos en los que la dejó. Coda es el programa de software más práctico que he usado después de probar muchas estructuras diferentes. Atrás quedaron los días de Dreamweaver y de la nueva ola, Coda.

"Great coding software for a dilettante coder ;)"

What do you like best?

I love that it auto-closes your html tags. As in if you're writing a <p> and then start typing </, it will detect you need to close the <p> tag. I'm sure that's a standard feature on many programs, but I find it convenient. I like how easy it is to set up the login for the FTP for a site to code remotely. I am not a coder but know a few things from my years in SEO. I find this perfectly sufficient for basic html edits and tweaks!

Very fast to upload changes since, easy keyboard shortcuts.

Also the capability to add Plug-Ins for extra features.

What do you dislike?

I can't say there's anything I really dislike about it. It suits my purposes. It's updated every now and then. It's fast to use, doesn't lag or crash ever.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For a one-time license fee of $99, I find this to be a very easy to use, fast and efficient coding program. It's great for basic html changes and so it. You can customize the look if you want black background or white, etc. It gets the job done and is the coding software I learned basic coding on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coda allows me to edit sites using FTP for various clients. Clean interface, fast, easy to use. It helps me quickly make html changes to sites and immediately push live.

"Most of what a web designer needs in a solid package"

What do you like best?

Coda is a powerful tool for web engineers: it has solid syntax highlighting, code snippets with placeholders, suggestions and language references built in, a fully featured FTP client with automatic uploading of modified files, and a lot more features that should be tried to fully understand their potential. I also love the Panic Sync feature, so I get all my websites login also on my iPad, for when I need to fix something on the go.

What do you dislike?

I use it every day and I'm really happy with its features; if it had also a "file diff" feature and the full Sequel Pro built in for managing MySQL databases (instead of the cut-down version it has now) I could ditch two external tools I still use along with it. Another thing one could hope for is a separate panel for managing in detail FTP uploads/downloads.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a powerful IDE for coding websites with a lot of useful features, Coda is a solid choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coda has fulfilled my needs in coding websites and web applications in a powerful and solid way. I can rely on it in my daily work and — to date — I would not change it for any other program.

"Great program for ftp access, and coding"

What do you like best?

I like that it has both coding and ftp access in one program. You can save your sites, and access them with one click, and uploading files via ftp is a breeze. The interface is nice and simple.

What do you dislike?

If you have your ftp connection open while coding, it's easy to accidentally make a change to the live site when you wanted to preview it on your local first instead. It would be handy if the interface was a different color when your in a local file vs. remote.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great little application. I use to when I need to make quick updates and suchlike. I still use a more dedicated coding application like Sublime or Atom when I'm working on a larger project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I tend to have a lot of programs open at any one time, and it can slow my computer down. I like that I can code, and upload with Coda, so I don't need to have a second app like Sublime open at the same time.

"Decent but could be better"

What do you like best?

It has a pretty simple look and feel. It isn't duanting to get up and running.

What do you dislike?

The UX isn't very good. Simple things like bookmarking places in your code seem like hacks. Also it crashes periodically so you need to save a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have tried a lot of code editors and keep coming back to coda. I'm not in love with it and think it could be way better but I generally think that about all the code editors on the market. Coda doesn't seem to be on the cutting edge, and I return to it mostfully out of comfort.

"Best editor"

What do you like best?

Gorgeous code editor that can make editing code... fun once again!

A few of my favorite functions of Coda include: Sync, Instant Preview and Git Control. Of course most of these features are wrapped upward into a beautiful USER INTERFACE which fits nicely inside the MacOS ecosystem.

The particular instant preview feature enables you to view almost all of your code modifications live, right from inside the editor, no browser relaxing!

What do you dislike?

In case you have your ftp connection open up while coding, it's easy to accidentally make a change to the live site when you desired to preview it on the local first instead. It would be useful if the interface was a different color when your in a local file vs. remote control.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda is still the speediest text editor I've used and can handle large files a lot better than most. Almost all of us keep it for times we need to modify large data files, so keep that in thoughts when analyzing it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I will be able to create computer code from the beginning up with relieve, and also edit program code others have written. This also keeps me perfected in n what I am doing as opposed to jumping around the window. This was great when We was coding more from the ground up, and if I went back again into that area We would pick up the software again. Another advantage is that it is less resource intensive as other programs which We really appreciate.

"All in One Coding Experience"

What do you like best?

This app has it all when it comes to the coding experience. Before, I used to need three seperate apps to (1) Code (2) Transfer files via FTP, and (3) Use Terminal. But now I can do it all right within Coda!

What do you dislike?

File navigation is a little wonky. Its somewhat difficult dealing with multiple files. This app could benefit from split view to view files side by side. You typically have to deal with one file at a time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you hate using multiple apps for ftp, terminal and text editing, Coda is your all in one solution!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Front End Development, Updating sites, Transferring files. The ability to do this all in one app is great!

"Lightweight & Easy to Use Text Editor "

What do you like best?

Coda has been my go-to text editor for years now. In fact, the product is so good that I still haven't upgraded to Coda2. The software itself takes up very little space on my hard drive. It always loads quickly and has never given me any problems. Even when I bought a new MacBook and had to move my entire development environment over.. it was a breeze & I was back up and running in no time.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I don't like at the moment is the fact that I can't seem to find any of the themes that I used to use. I had previously installed a dark theme that was very easy on the eyes for "night coding", and I just can't find it anywhere. Well, one more thing I don't like is the upgrade price for Coda2. I think existing long-time users such as myself should be entitled to a 50% discount or something similar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot, I think you'll love it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Coda for developing websites. It is my go-to text editor for all things HTML, CSS, & PHP. I also love that (S)FTP is built right in by default.

"Coda is a Top-notch Code Editor for Mac Users"

What do you like best?

Beautiful code editor that makes editing code...fun again!

Some of my favorite features of Coda 2.5 include: Sync, Instant Preview and Git Control. Of course all of these features are wrapped up into a beautiful UI which fits nicely within the MacOS ecosystem.

The instant preview feature allows you to view all of your code changes live, right from within the editor, no browser refreshing!

What do you dislike?

The lack of plugins, i.e. extensibility.

While Coda does support plugins and has quite a few plugins that are freely available to their users, your options will be limited. They simply don't have the user base of some other code editors, namely SublimeText and Atom, and due to this, you won't find the same level of plugins within Coda as you do those others.

Also, lack of updates...seriously, a $100 code editor should be seeing regular updates! Many of the open source editors are seeing regular updates, new plugins and more very frequently, I expect a premium product to do the same.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are working with the latest and greatest frameworks/languages, I would recommend looking elsewhere. However, if you are a front-end developer and need a reliable work horse, Coda may be just right for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a freelance designer, I often find myself in a situation where building out some of my designs is a requirement. Although this is often my least favorite aspect, and I am not much of a coder, it has to be done and to do so, I need a reliable code editor.

Coda was my true love for quite some time, however, as my process changes, Coda did not move along with me and I have since had to change to another editor.

"Hands down best software for hard-coders"

What do you like best?

Coda is my go to coding software with integrated FTP access and simplistic user interface. It hasn't once crashed and the tabs function is fantastic. Coda constantly updates their software and make sure everything is running smoothly at all times. Coda manages big bulk uploads with greatness and never has issues, I can upload an entire site with no problems whatsoever.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when you want to come out of a login it will crash and hold, but this is a rare occurrence and only when there is some activity going on in the upload or download.

Downloading files from the server can sometimes cause my Coda to crash, I'm not too sure if this is an issue with my version or OS but sometimes it can crash and go extremely slow.

Besides this small issue I have no further dislikes about the software. It has always been smooth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a simplistic UI, ease of use and reliability, look no further than Coda.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of Coda are great. With this software we can manage all of our clients under on roof. Coda neatly organises each FTP login and saves all the details, and resumes where you left off.

Coda is the only software I have used after testing many different platforms. Gone are the days of Dreamweaver and hello to new wave, Coda.

"Perfect code app for mac"

What do you like best?

It is a light but very powerful application, I use it for web development and modifying templates, it's great, and the integration with the FTP client is great for editing. It also has an iOS application that allows me to do quick code reviews without using the Mac.The different themes that you have to personalize the code allow me to be comfortable, it's great to be able to write code on a black background.

What do you dislike?

It is not so friendly in the graphic section to edit templates, but nothing to worry about, if it had a graphical interface that accompanies the code it would be a killer-app

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes I earn a few dollars setting up websites, coda allows me to edit the code of payment templates to adapt them to my projects easily.

"Best editor for iOS"

What do you like best?

I love how I'm able to code on the go. Sometimes I may be out and away from my computer and I will get an email which will say something on my site is broken or not working. I can easily go into the Coda app and find the problem and fix it. I can also create new features from anywhere, either while I'm waiting for someone or something or if I'm just bored and want to use my phone to code. It's all possible with Coda. I also love the design of Coda for Mac and iOS. It looks very modern and sleek and it works seamlessly which is definitely a plus!

What do you dislike?

I wish I can import my private keys using Dropbox. It would make it a lost easier for me to add new sites and login. I also wish the icons were more understandable in the app. The icons look sleek and cool but it doesn't really describe well what it does if I click on it. For example, the "Going back a directory" or "going back to all my files" icon/button.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're able to solve problems by solving problems on our website. We're able to code on the go and fix changes for our users as soon as possible. Being able to work/code from anywhere is great!

"Best Coding Software"

What do you like best?

I spent a lot of my career frustrated with Dreamweaver. Coda2 is like Dreamweaver unlocked. The ability to work with servers, syntax colors, preferences, is so much easier in Coda2. Pair it with any of Panic's other products and you have streamlined your production.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything about Coda2. I have never had any issues and they update the software often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Coda2 seriously made my job so much easier. I love the sleek interface and that it's super easy to customize to your liking. You can also transfer your preferences to other machines with ease which is a must for someone who sometimes moves from desktop to laptop and vice-versa.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I really wanted ti streamline prototyping and Coda2 allowed me to organize myself in a much easier way. Now I have all of my server access in one program and I don't have to worry about going in between multiple programs to do my programming and FTP.

"Coda is a code editing program made for hand-coders"

What do you like best?

It is a clean, efficient piece of software that does exactly what it needs to; it allows you to edit and create code from scratch and displays it beautifully. Plus, you can preview! Visually, the software is gorgeous, which is something that I just like because its nice when your software is both beautiful and functional.

What do you dislike?

My biggest issue is an issue that I have with a lot of editors and that is integration with CMSs. It is a bit better than Dreamweaver but I wish that there was more fluidity there between it and the CMS. Another issue that correlates along with that is that if PHP snippets were validated; that would help a lot when coding for CMS systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think its a much better code editor than most out there. I know many designers stick with Dreamweaver because they have the suite already installed but I think that this is cleaner and quicker to use. It is not difficult to pick up, especially if you have been hand coding for some time, but there are snippets to help you along as you get better or more comfortable with coding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to create code from the ground up with ease, and also edit code others have written. It also keeps me honed in n what I'm doing as opposed to jumping around the window. It was great when I was coding more from the ground up, and if I went back into that area I would pick up the software again. Another benefit is that it is not as resource intensive as other programs which I really appreciate.

"Really nice way to code on Mac"

What do you like best?

Crea tu código viendo en directo cómo queda el resultado sin salir de la aplicación

What do you dislike?

The functionality of watching live on iOS devices through your application does not always work as it should

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want an application with an attractive design, easy to customize for programming, with a native preview and live code that you write, Coda is without a doubt a good option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Normalmente lo utilizo para programar con lenguajes sencillos, especialmente HTML+CSS y PHP, para lo que sus funcionalidades son muy cómodas.
