Diet Coda

Diet Coda has been available on the App Store all day here in Australia, and to say Panic have done a good job of it is an understatement.

Diet Coda is a damn gorgeous app!

I have been using Diet Coda most of today to update the site here, it’s performed flawlessly. I’ve been copying and pasting code from TypeKit, directly editing the CSS, and just generally cleaning up the site, and I couldn’t be happier.

There’s no denying that the iPad is a creation device. You could literally build a website from the ground up in Diet Coda on the iPad. The code completion is awesome, admittedly I’ve only been tweaking CSS so far, but from the demo content I’ve seen it’s equally adept at numerous languages.

If you maintain any websites, and you have an iPad, do yourself a favour and go and purchase Diet Coda.

Update: The one thing I couldn’t work out was how to edit invisible files, ie. .htaccess

Update 2: Federico from Mac Stories has a great review up on the Macstories site.

    […] Coda 2 was released yesterday as well, and from the various articles and reviews hitting the web it seems to be as awesome as Diet Coda. […]
