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.
Please help!!October 22, 2011 at 4:23 pm #89462October 24, 2011 at 4:03 am #89518jamygoldenMember
@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.October 24, 2011 at 12:20 pm #89528TheDocMember
I’ve been using Sublime Text 2 for Windows. Doesn’t come close to Coda on my Mac at home, but it gets the job done when I’m forced into using Windows!October 25, 2011 at 4:13 am #89589October 25, 2011 at 4:18 am #89591AmruthPillaiMember
The only thing close to CODA on a Windows PC is Adobe Dreamweaver… I use it most of the time in collab. with Notepad++
@kemie I’ve never heard of Stylizer before.. looks pretty promising :) Will check it out, thank you!October 28, 2011 at 9:11 pm #89872alfoParticipant
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.October 28, 2011 at 10:01 pm #89874chrisburtonParticipantJune 30, 2012 at 5:13 am #105147ajinkyaxParticipant
I will recommend Dreamweaver CS5/CS6.
Else Sublime Text 2. I love both of them.June 30, 2012 at 10:12 am #105148Paulie_DMember
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-likeJune 30, 2012 at 10:26 am #105149
the only thing i use dreamweaver for is html emails.
for everything else there’s sublime text 2.July 2, 2012 at 11:13 am #105219karlpcrowleyParticipant
Sublime text 2 is by far the best
I also use Aptana for remote editing when neededJuly 6, 2012 at 1:45 pm #105533July 6, 2012 at 2:00 pm #105534
honestly though, dreamweaver has come a long way.
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!November 21, 2012 at 11:29 pm #115117luisimtzMember
I have just signed so I don’t have even a picture, guys what do you think about HTMLPad? I think it is a quite good text editor, I’m using it to create my code.
