Hey everyone. I really LOVE Coda, but it’s not for Windows. I would like to find an equivalent to this.
I know loads of people will recommend Notepad ++ and Filezilla combo, but the thing I love about Coda is the ability to edit files while they are on the server, without downloading them, or editing them while they’re in a temp directory.
@Habbakuk I can see why someone would want it – I used to make use of E-TextEditor and it’s FTP capabilities. Basically you sacrifice security (the backups / version control) for speed and ease of use.
I would use this for small (hobby) projects where it would only be a few hours work, but also for specific server coding like connecting to MySQL databases with different credentials to my localhost WAMP
Thanks for the advice :)
I actually don’t like Dreamweaver very much – it feels to clunky and heavy for hobby stuff.
I’m really shocked people still use Dreamweaver. I used it for less than a day and never went back to it. Sublime Text is the best program I’ve found so far. @jamygolden found an FTP plugin for it so it is a possible feature.
I love Dreamweaver CS6 because it combines so many things that otherwise I would have to use distinct separate software + plugins for. Sure it’s heavy handed somes time and it’s live view is clunky (which is why I don’t use it) preferring to just view in browser.
However, I have hopes for Adobe Brackets which looks like it could be Coda-like
i still couldnt imagine using it as my primary code editor considering how unbelievably awesome sublime text 2 is, and the fact that changing dreamweavers code coloring is one of the most tedious things evAR!
