Panic, the company behind popular Mac app Coda, has announced the second major version of its prized web development tool. Coda 2 for Mac will launch on May 24th alongside a new app for the iPad called Diet Coda. Version 2.0 of Coda is “better at everything,” according to Panic, and Diet Coda will allow you to preview your code live on the iPad as you write on the Mac. The iPad app will also let you make quick edits to your code on the go.
You code the web. We revolutionized that process in Coda, putting everything in one place. An editor. Terminal. CSS. Files. But we knew we could do better. With Coda 2, we went beyond expectations. With loads of new, much-requested features, a few surprises, and a seriously refreshed UI, this update is, truly, major.
Coda 2 comes with over 100 new features, including a built-in MySQL editor, live code hints, iCloud sync, live CSS updating, code folding, smart tabs, keyboard shortcuts, better site management, and more. Panic also says that Coda 2 is “Retina-ready.”
Diet Coda looks like the perfect iPad companion app.
Diet Coda takes everything we’ve ever learned aboutworld-class web code editing, and wraps it up to-go. It’s packed with features, bathed in fun, ready to work. So go on, take a vacation and only pack your iPad — you’ll get your job done, quickly and delightfully. It’s so good, you might never touch your desktop again.
A flagship feature is AirPreview, allowing you to view the site you’re coding wirelessly on the iPad. Panic calls it “post-PC perfection” for only $10.
Both apps will go live on Thursday, May 24th. For the first 24 hours, Coda 2 will be half off at $49. Version 2.0 is a paid upgrade for all existing users.
Mark your calendars!
