Coda for iOS is a text editor, with syntax highlighting, clips, find replace, the works. But it also has a full file manager, allowing you to work with files locally or remotely. It has a cool keyboard with context keys and an amazing super loupe to set your cursor. It manages 'sites' so you can quickly get to work, and it'll even sync those sites. It'll preview your pages, of course. And we've also thrown in a full-featured SSH terminal. It's an incredible app.

SITES. The foundation of Coda iOS: create a site for each of your projects, local or remote, and quickly get to the files you need to edit. Better still, use our free Panic Sync service to sync these sites with Coda Mac and Transmit iOS, securely and quickly.

FILES. We've been building file managers for a really long time — we've got this. Local, remote, or any mix of the two. Edit, rename, duplicate, create folders, upload, download, you name it, you got it.

EDITING. Tap a file to land in our highly-optimized text editor, which syntax highlights your code with ease. Now, try this: move the insertion point. Whoa. That's the Super Loupe, magnifying magic we think is the best way to precisely set your cursor. And only Coda iOS has it.

CLIPS. Have a handful of code bits you re-use a lot? Tap the clips icon in Coda iOS, and load them in. Now you can insert them with a single tap.

FIND / REPLACE. Let’s say you accidentally inverted the values of your width and height tags. With our find and replace banner — and its breakthrough wildcard button — you can easily replace or swap or re-arrange your text.

TERMINAL. Really? Like, a full-featured SSH client built-in? Sure! Not only is it great value for your money, but it's also great help to getting your work done. Connect to your sites with a tap, and get the full-featured spot-on emulation of Prompt.

TABS. Quickly switch between your open documents. I know, it's obvious. But still.

CONTEXT KEYS. We've added a special section to your iOS keyboard that gives you the most useful, helpful special characters, automatically. It takes a lot of the pain out of writing code on a piece of glass.

AIR PREVIEW. A really special thing. Paired with Coda 2 for Mac, Coda iOS can act as a dedicated "preview screen", showing you a preview of what you're coding on the desktop — as you code. It's a great use for an iPad that's just sitting around, being lonely.

We've put a desktop-class amount of work into Coda iOS. It's truly a pro app. But, it's not hard to learn. And most amazingly, you're getting an incredible amount of power at a killer price. Buy it today!

Everything you need to develop great websites— even a MySQL editor— which is awesome!

love it

it is very power!useful!

Panic is awesome

I love Panic, Inc software. I like being able to issue commands to my server from the comfort of my phone and to write or debug a few lines of code on the bus or at break. My only complaint is that they’re Apple only! We need Transmit Windows and Linux as well as Coda Android!

So easy it’s faster than desktop for simple edits

It just occurred to me I had to add my 5-star review when I was sitting with my MBP open right in front of me, realized I needed to make a change in my site, and stood up and got my phone instead. :) This app is so easy I don’t even want to touch my desktop client for simple edits, because the app is faster.

Love the app!

I use this app on my iPhone and my iPad as well as the desktop version on my Mac! I would like to see some MySQL support make it to mobile!

Looks great... needs Files support

I’m not a heavy professional web developer... so I don’t really take advantage of all the features. I can say the app looks great and works great. It does what you would expect in a web IDE. I especially like the quick preview button. My one complaint... is the lack of support for the iOS Files app. My web project was actually stored on my Google Drive and I had to copy each individual file one by one to the app. That was a bit annoying... Of course, the developer has already said that they are working on this feature... I just can’t wait to see it implemented. =)

Local, organic, working software!

As a developer, this is exactly how I would’ve built the app if I had the time for it; happy there is a great company and team of developers at Panic who did it instead -leaves me more time to focus on my own apps.

Need tutorial videos

Hi I’m new to coding on iOS and I used to use sublime on my Mac. I bought this app based on other users ratings. I found your tutorials/reference material on your website for the iOS app, but I am still having trouble understanding it. I saw you guys have a YouTube channel. Could you maybe put tutorials up on it for people picking up this app for the very first time?

Really just need to add more integrated support with icloud. Ideally I should be able to open a folder in icloud have it import the ENTIRE folder (with all files etc - maybe import on use to save space) then edit and save back up to icloud. Also ability to use git to save down and up (commit) would be awesome. Otherwise very solid and worth the $25 (although for an app I was kinda shocked).

Files support

Need files app support. Too slow to adopt new tech. Updates too minimal. Files was an iOS 11 feature. Already late on XS Max support.
