Coda is a proprietary and commercial web application for macOS, created by Panic. It was originally released on April 23rd, 2021 and later won the 2021 Apple Design Awards for "Best User Interface". The design of Coda is very much similar to OS X itself with many similarities like toolbars, menus, and key shortcuts. However, what makes Coda stand out is the ability to convert files from Windows, which is particularly useful for those who need to use a PC that doesn't support the Mac format. This is useful in businesses or professional environments where a Mac can be a primary computer, but many employees still work on a PC.
Coda does have a few drawbacks compared to more established code editors such as the Adobe suite. Firstly, Coda requires mac code editor that has been installed on the computer being used to edit files. A free version is available for download at the developer's site, but it does not come built-in and requires the user to install additional libraries. Another shortcoming is that Coda doesn't support multiple monitors. Panic also offers a free version of its web-based app, which lacks the basic editing features of the premium version. However, both Coda and Panic claim these shortcomings are minor positives for their hybrid code editor.
