A collection of Clips for Panic’s Coda

Coda takes all of the tools you need to build for the web, including an integrated file browser, text editor, CSS editor, preview, built-in terminal, and complete set of reference, and wraps it all in a single elegant interface.

Today I came across a site that allows you to add or share clips for Panic’s CODA. Coda-Clips.com aims to build a comprehensive repository of Clips from our own libraries and user submissions.

If your not familiar with Coda, here is their story.

The story of Coda.
So, we code web sites by hand. And one day, it hit us: our web workflow was wonky. We’d have our text editor open, with Transmit open to save files to the server. We’d be previewing in Safari, adjusting SQL in a Terminal, using a CSS editor and reading references on the web. “This could be easier,” we declared. “And much cooler.”

Clips. A friendly floating window allows you to insert your frequently used text snippets just by clicking, dragging, or tab-triggering. Nice!

What did they add in Coda 1.5? Well there are a few new items but the standout for me was the improved clip management:

Improved Clips. You can now organize your favorite text clippings into groups, and easily import and export your clips to share them with others.

Before Coda came along I was a huge fan of their simple, easy to use FTP program Transmit. It pretty much got me hooked on how simple and easy to use a program could be. I get asked pretty regularly by clients what FTP program I would recommend, well unfortunately Transmit isn’t available for PCs only Apple computers. It alone is worth the switch over to OSX.
