    I’m an old web developer, new to mac os…
    Should I buy Coda or Espresso?

    Useful cheat sheet!

    To answer your question Giuliano…both are very good tools. I’ve used both, but personally prefer Espresso. Download the trials and give them a spin for yourself.

    My web toolkit includes Espresso, CSSEdit, Transmit, TextMate, Illustrator, Photoshop and VMWare Fusion for testing sites in IE. Also if you don’t have Photoshop, check out Pixelmator – 80% of the features of PS at a fraction of the price!

    Thanks Samuel :)
    But… Why you’re using both Espresso and TextMate?

    While I can’t speak for Samuel, there’s just a lot of stuff that TextMate does that neither Espresso nor Coda are capable of yet. Theoretically both of them could get a lot of the way there through Sugars and plugins, but TextMate has a tremendous head start.

    I admit that personally I’m in the camp of really wanting to love Espresso, but — despite owning it for longer than I’ve owned Coda — never quite being able to warm up to it. They’re both definitely worth checking out, and so are the more power-user editors like TextMate and BBEdit. I’ve tended to use TextMate and CSSEdit more than any other two tools, but I’ve been keeping my eye on both Coda and Espresso.
