WordPress Mode + Coda

I just have to say, this is incredible if you work in WordPress and use coda: http://pradador.com/code/coda/wordpressmode/
also, here are some WordPress clips for coda: http://coda-clips.com/category/wordpress
Thanks Dan!

Also, completely unrelated: this site is a great representation of responsive web design: http://hicksdesign.co.uk/
and I just love the colors and the awesome use of jQuery in this one: http://www.seattlesbest.com/

What are some sites you've been loving recently?

  • Parallels (for browser testing)
  • Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (graphics)
  • Firebug (for css debugging)
  • Typekit (for webfonts)
  • Linotype Font Explorer (for computer fonts)
  • Lighthouse (for bug tracking)
  • Beanstalk (for external SVN repositories)
  • Harvest (for time tracking)

Communication:

  • Skype (conversations with peers)
  • Colloqy (for IRC Chanel group discussions)
  • Cloud App (for screen shot and layout sharing)
