    I have just taken delivery of a shiny new iMac having making the decision to switch from a lifetime of PC use. Was wondering what are the best software tools for front end web development on the Mac? Fireworks for design stuff is a given for me and I’m used to using Dreamweaver for coding but I’m open to any suggestions to replace DW.

    I want a code editor which does a good job at code colouring SASS and SCSS files as DW is naff at it! Other features I like in DW are the code completion, file explorer, built in FTP and element block navigation/selection tool.

    Sublime Text 2. You can customize your workflow as you wish.


    Plus everyone swears by Codekit too!


    How many threads do we have with this same exact question?


    Hi Chrisburton is right there been quite a few threads around this question however I just can’t help myself and say I still use Coda version 2 and I love it!


    Hi I forgot to mention that I think I read that Gilbert Pellegrom uses Coda so it good enough for him it good enough for me!

    > Codekit for Compass/SASS compiler

    Not this guy! I roll Compass through the terminal.


    I’m a newbie and so far in love with Coda 2.
