What are the main similarities & differences between Espresso and Coda? AND
What are the Pros and Cons of each app?
I am considering purchasing one of these, but I am not that familiar with them.

I think most people I know would say go with Coda – although I have no real logic to tell you why :D (I know I would buy coda… but im on a PC lol)
Im sure that wasnt very helpful at all LOLFebruary 23, 2009 at 7:30 pm #54256pabMember
a few friends have tried espresso and swear by it now, definitely try all three text editor mentioned above, it really depends on your work flowFebruary 23, 2009 at 8:12 pm #54250davesgonebananasMember
I am currently PC based, though I’m experimenting with running Leopard in VMware in order to trial Coda and Textmate. Having tried them I think I would switch to Mac in a second, but at the moment I just can’t afford it.
For my web dev I currently use Notepad++ with some addons (Explorer and FTP mostly).
Other PC people – what text editors do you use / recommend?February 24, 2009 at 4:22 am #54265
I like dave, use notepad++ I used to use dreamweaver, but it wasn’t lightweight enough.February 24, 2009 at 3:44 pm #54276"box" wrote:Take a look at TextMate too – it’s the daddy of text editors on the mac. You can trial TextMate and Coda (Espresso is still in development), so have a good play with each before you buy.
I agree. I am just trying to get feedback from people that have tested them already. Good feedback is very useful.
Anyone?March 23, 2009 at 1:18 pm #55055
Espresso 1.0 is available!
I am going to check it out.

Just thought I should point out… Espresso is part of the MacHeist bundle (though it is the last app to be unlocked) and in previous years all apps were (as far as I know) unlocked. Looks like a good deal. I’m a big Coda fan, and switching to Espresso seems a bit unloyal of me, but I need to download the app and try it out. I did try it out when it was in Beta, and definitely found it lacking, but perhaps it has been improved in the 1.0. Ultimately though, I think the competition is good, and Coda can only grow stronger as a result.April 1, 2009 at 2:22 am #55650
Check it out! I just got Espresso for only $39 plus other software.
What an awesome deal!!!April 1, 2009 at 8:24 pm #55703MattMember
As of today, I’ll be using Espresso. I updated Coda today (after not updating in awhile) and got a nice message saying "Don’t pirate Coda… (et al)". I contacted Panic and they won’t honour my receipt of purchase. No problem with Transmit, though. For such a great company, they sure know how to ruin a day.
Textmate and Espresso will be on my dock for a while.April 2, 2009 at 3:36 am #55712"Matt" wrote:As of today, I’ll be using Espresso.

I got it sorted out. They took the time to go back and look at their order history and found they had a glitch in their system.April 6, 2009 at 6:49 pm #55891ulrikeMember
does anybody know if there is any auto-formatting in espresso?
that is the one thing that bugs me in coda. I mean formatting whole (html) pages, like you can do in dw, preferrably with tag libraries.April 8, 2009 at 5:55 am #55961"Matt" wrote:I got it sorted out.
