Application icon for Panic Software's CodaOh now this sounds good. And the site pimping it looks smashing (as one would expect from Panic):

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, running queries in Terminal, using a CSS editor, and reading references on the web. “This could be easier,” we realized. “And much cooler.”

Panic Software introduce Coda, a new web development environment for OS X which uses the core functionality of SubEthaEdit, the spendiferous collaborative text editor from The Coding Monkeys. Nice job one and all!

Update: I’m currently playing with the free trial version of the software. I think I’m going to have to buy it. Not only is the application a real joy to use (the eye candy, the features, oh my!), there’s a real attention to detail here, and the software is so useful. There are some nice touches, such as when creating a new “site”: plug in your remote details, and some UI deliciousness goes off and does its thing, resulting in a screenshot like this. Very cool.
