I’ve been waiting for Coda2 like a mad man, for about 1 year! So i was of course really really anxious to try it out!

I bought it straight away from the MAS . But after a few hours I had to ask for a refund. Why?

  • Multiple crashes
  • Live preview is slow and took me a while to figure out how to live preview CSS editing
  • CSS editor replaced by “pops”
  • Kind of bloated UI
  • no multiple selection
  • For me its not intuitive at all, overall
  • I think, when you take THIS long to make a major upgrade, it HAS to be perfect. Which Coda2 is not.

    But let me state.. A code editor is ALL about personal preferences.

    Anyways, I will be keeping a close eye on their blog, to see what features they are adding down the road.

    But for now, I will return to espresso.

    I move from Textmate – Coda – Sublime Text 2. Period.

    Sublime Text 2 rules – in my opinion of course;)

    +1 for Sublime. Its a well versed editor, that is always updated, easy to customise, and works on both mac / win / linux.

    I kinda feel like Coda 2 is a little late to the party. Most the features (Excluding air preview) are already available in most other editors.

    Kinda odd to hear friends saying they were buying Coda 2, before even trying it.
