Panic is bringing its popular Mac coding app, Coda to the iPad as Diet Coda.
The app also offers what Panic calls “Super Loupe” which it describes as “the best way to move your iOS cursor, ever.” We’re not sure exactly what that means, though we doubt it’s anything like the iOS keyboard/cursor concept video we saw recently.
Panic even built Prompt, its SSH Terminal for iOS into Diet Coda, which saves users $7.99.
With Diet Coda, web developers have a great excuse to travel with only an iPad. Pair it with a keyboard case like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover and there is no reason to carry around a bulky laptop. Using a Bluetooth keyboard will lose the contextualized keyboard, but it’s the best option for users who don’t like typing on the iPad’s screen.
Users that want to use a laptop or desktop for web coding can still find a use for Diet Coda. The AirPreview feature of the app turns it into a dedicated preview for the work done in Coda 2. Paired with a MacBook running Coda 2, Diet Coda offers an easy, portable dual-monitor workstation just like Air Display.
Diet Coda will land on the iOS App Store on March 24. It will be half-off at $9.99 on the first day, and will increase to $19.99 on March 25.
