So, Coda is out and it has been pretty well received. For good reason. It’s a very elegant-looking app, with nice touches all over the place. Panic really knows how to exploit the look and feel of OS X and the core technologies beneath. Put simply: it oozes Mac goodness from every corner.
I want to use it, I really do. However. I don’t need it.
You see, ever since I switched from PHP to Rails I only touch the server for little increments at a time, and no longer work directly on it (man, those were[n’t] the days!) Even when developing comps from Photoshop to XHTML/CSS, I mainly stay within my current editor and switch back and forth between Webkit.
(As an aside, I really like the bundled Panic Sans font. Appears to be some variation of Bitstream Vera Mono, possibly with the underscores tweaked.)
