I just got a brand new MacBook, actually this is my first Mac I’m in the awesome process of learning everything related to Mac you know and I’d like to know which editor is better, I just code html, css and a bit of php (wordpress basic) what do you think?
PD: I’m so freaking excited with this machine
Love both, but vote TextMate.
And for Windows ?
Intype or Notepad++
It’s actually not quite a fair comparison since Coda is much much more then just text editor. It includes version control, FTP , preview (using Webkit/Safari rendering), a build in terminal, simplified CSS entry, books with info and references, and much much more…
If it’s only about text editors, I prefer Textmate over the Coda editor. However, Coda simply rocks as a whole web development environment (and it’s looks super slick not to forget).
I use both on a daily basis.
Oh and congrats with your first Mac! Be prepared to get lots more enjoyment from working:)
TextMate, without a doubt. I can code so much quicker in it than Coda thanks to the huge community and all the bundles (and themes).
Coda, however, would probably be better if you need auto-completion when writing HTML and CSS , and it has a built-in FTP client.
As for Windows, E-TextEditor is basically the TextMate for Windows (and supports most TextMate bundles, too!)
