Panic - Coda - One-Window Web Development for Mac OS X
Teach Coda new tricks, and extend its functionality, lickety-split. Download plug-ins that others have written, or write your own plug-ins using your ...
Mostly what I'm doing these days is directory-building and forum-seeding, so nothing more than a browser is necessary for the business side of things. But I still want to do some minor design work, and don't know where to start.
Problem is, I have no clue what software is good for various things. I thought I remembered an old partner raving about GoLive, but that seems to be gone.
I have DW for Mac, but what I'm looking for is something similar to the first post here: A WYSIWYG editor that allows edit to the code if that is needed.
I also got Gimp, because I'll be fried if I'm going to pay all that money for yet another version of PhotoShop. Gimp works very well and does all the same things. And I got Sun's Open Office.
I do own a license of DW, but never use it, all I need is a text editor for html and CSS.
CSS is tricky enough cross-browser that I don't want to deal with any quirk an editor might throw me on top of what IE will do to me.
I use a text editor and a copy of FF with the web developer toolbar and firebug installed in it.
I went with OpenOffice instead of MS Office around the same time and have been thrilled with the software (Sun) and the price (free).
I use Photoshop Elements on all my Macs now.
I like text wrangler a lot. I also like the price.
BBedit is to fancy for me. It is somehow exactly wrong where Coda is exactly right. I much prefer text wrangler.
Now the folks at Panic do have, in my opinion, the world beater FTP client. I can't say enough nice things about Transmit. I think they could get $100 if they bundled Transmit and Coda as a single package. Transmit is only $35. It has so many right features there is not space to list them all.
