    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for a coding tool for the Mac, primarily for web design. Right now I am using TextWrangler, but I need something with a bit more power and finesse to it, and preferably won't cost me an arm and a leg.

    Thanks for your help!

    I use TextMate and I am an avid web developer, totally worth the money.

    ive been using coda for 6 months and quite like it. (but i'm only fiddling around with some html/php basic websites!)

    also coda is will get an update to 1.5 soon.
    it's in testing under NDA at the moment.

    all i'll say is that it is a fairly significant update.

    Depends on whether you are doing any backend stuff. For static sites (Never tried it's PHP functionality) it's great.

    I manage several sites and got Coda shortly after I switched to my iMac. It has proven to be a great tool for me--does everything I need to write and edit html code. As a complementary tool, I use Cyberduck as my ftp client.

    I have some php as well as perl functions on my sites and Coda works fine for me to edit any of it.

    See my signature. You will get a remarkable FTP program with an exceptional editor. :D
