Best simple "IDE" for basic web development on OSX, but needs a new version to keep pace.

Pros: I can do everything in Coda that I need for many web development tasks. It has a great editor, an OK amount of plugins, and best of all a really nice FTP/SFTP/SSH client. They even have a companion iOS app (previously called "Diet Coda") that lets you do a whole lot on the go, from your iPad.

Cons: Coda 2 is now getting long in the tooth, and it's getting outpaced by more modern web dev software. In the meantime I've switched my main IDE to VS Code.

Can be very slow compared to other leaner IDEs.

Overall: I've used it for years and it still has a lot of value, but needs an update to be avoid being left behind.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Overall: 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.

Pros: There are two main uses I have for Coda:

1) Accessing and editing files via FTP. When I need to edit child-theme files for a Wordpress site, Coda is the editor I use.

2) Coda has an amazing search feature: If you have a local copy of a website, you can add it to Coda and then perform site-wide searches. This is invaluable when I'm trying to track down a certain classname or function across many files.

Coda also has the best search/replaced. You can add wild cards that show up as little numbers, then you can re-order those numbers for the "replace". This is so powerful!

Cons: It's a little lacking in terms of what you can expect from the likes of Visual Studio Code, Atom, or Sublime Text.

It's not my choice for local editing, but if I need to connect via FTP/SFTP it's usually my go-to.

Overall: Easily edit files via FTP or SFPT. Fantastic site-wide search feature. Fantastic search and replace with unique wildcards.

Pros: I really enjoy using Coda to edit HTML files and upload them to the web using FTP. I like how you can select an HTML file that's up on the web and edit it inside the same window. When you save the file it automatically re-uploads the file you were editing.

Cons: It can be difficult for someone to use who isn't super familiar with coding. It doesn't have all the drag and drop kind of functionality that Dreamweaver offers.

Overall: I use this program just about every day. It's my favorite program to use for my HTML editing and FTP. I use a Mac mostly so I can use this software.

Pros: I love everything about Coda 2. It keeps all of my sites organized and synced across multiple computers. Setting up a new site is simple and literally takes less than a minute to get up and going.

Cons: The only issues I've had weren't necessarily the fault of Coda, but a lot of times with servers hosted on Go Daddy, I get a lot of "host key changed" notifications which makes it a PITA to work on a site when this is going on. Not sure who's at fault on that though.

Pros: The user interface is very friendly and have some interesting features like the find/replace using wildcards.

Also Coda have a built in ftp client which works very well.

Cons: Its community is not big enough to keep updated with the latest web development practices, so the plugins are in most cases outdated. In case you need to use Lint or other kinds of validation on the fly, besides other features like smart snippets, you'll miss that.

Pros: Clean, simple user interface that doesn't get in the way. Automatic FTP upload on save with preview capabilities across multiple browsers. Integration with version control systems, extensive add-on library to extend functionality

Cons: It would be nice to auto-preview across multiple outside browsers at the same time but this is not absolutely necessary. The software is excellent.

Pros: It's very easy to use, simple interface. Auto-detection when closing an element. Inexpensive. Easy to figure out interface.

Cons: There isn't an "search entire site" option that I've been able to figure out without downloading and re-uploading the site. You can't just do it straight from the connection.

Pros: It's lean, always works, and is continuously developed by the lovely people at Panic. You can see it's a labor of love when you use it daily.

Cons: It's a bit pricy, but they tend to update each major version for years so in the long run makes it worthwhile.

Overall: great environment to work in.

Pros: Honestly I love coda, I've tried all the others, I've tried to switch to be like the cool kids, and I can't. It's so full of features and I love everything it does.

Cons: The learning curve is a little hard, but overall it's a pretty easy piece of software to become acquainted too.

Pros: Coda is a great text editor to use for web development. Coda enables the user to manage multiple websites providing easy transition of files from your local machine to the website's hosting server. Coda is a great platform and Iove using it. The user interface is also very organized and great.

Cons: Coda is my favourite editor for creating websites, however it may seem a bit intimidating to first-time users. It might take a little time for new users to learn and get used to it.

Overall: Creating, Managing and Editing files for websites.

Pros: An all in one coding app for the Mac. This neat tool is priced perfectly and is a great starter for hand-coders to get their work out there. Also has an IOS app for my Ipad that works well.

Cons: Customer support is the biggest issue. When things don't work it is hard to get them to respond efficiently. Updates to the software are few and far between.

Pros: I love alsorts about this... the sites you add, the terminal window, the FTP, everything built in was a dream. And everything just seemed to work too. Great UI etc.

Cons: I have a high spec Mac, so I know everything runs no problem... apart from (as of recently) Coda. Coda now takes a good 15 minutes to boot up. It's so so slow. Unfortunately I've changed to a different editor for now until this is fixed.

Overall: Loved how organised the sites made my workflow.

Pros: great text editor. site management. clips for reusing code. fast preview. built-in FTP & SSH, iOS companion app.

Cons: Price. Mac-only (not a con for me). Not updated very often.

Overall: Coda is a fantastic web editor for coders. Even though much of the industry has went WordPress, I still need a good solution for custom code, custom plug-ins, and other changes that wordpress is not good at handling. Coda is fantastic if you have the money, and want the best experience on a Mac or iOS.

Pros: We use Dreamwaever on a daily basis so we were really keen to try Coda out. The interface looks beautiful and it's actually a very powerful piece of software. The coloured code is very helpful.

Cons: We did find that Coda has slightly less features than Dreamweaver and we are somehow more comfortable in Dreamweaver. But if you are new to coding, Coda is a great option.
