Codekit – Windows Alternative

  • # December 5, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Hi!
    About a week ago I read about a program that would work just as Codekit, but for windows. I cannot find it in my Browser history nor do I remeber the name.
    It had yet to be released. I have a faint memory of it’s name starting with a M.
    Other than that, I do not know what it was called.
    Any ideas? :)

    It was not Scout nor was it Pretzel.

    Thanks!

    Compass.app?

    Another one is Scout. I use Fire.app. It is a little more expensive than Compass.app, but it has more features.

    Nope, it wasn’t fire or compass. I’m really close to buying compass, however it feels like a bit of waste if a free alternative is being released soon.
    Thanks though!

    > Is Codekit available for window

    No, currently it is a OSX only app.

    The method I do for Windows is I use Scout and have that running in the background and code using [Adobe Brackets](https://github.com/adobe/brackets/downloads “https://github.com/adobe/brackets/downloads”) which has a live css edit feature like CodeKit or when you use CodePen.

    This may have been what you were looking for though. [Live Reload](http://livereload.com/ “http://livereload.com/”) has a Windows version, but it’s in alpha testing right now so I don’t exactly trust it just yet and the method I stated above works perfectly, and I actually like that the compiling program and live editor are different programs and run separately.

    (LiveReload works pretty good as a Chrome extension in combination with Compass.app.)

    THAT’S IT!
    I just bought Compass.app though, hahah.
    But thank you heaps!

    I’ve been waiting for the beta invite since Mike announced Mixture. Looks quite promising.

    Aptana is another one.

    Aptana is quite bulky, though. Reminds me of Dreamweaver.
