Source Tree

Recently I’ve had to setup some version control software locally to use with the Mercurial version control system. That’s where Source Tree came in. I found this piece of open source software that is free and will work with Mercurial, GIT and SVN repos (repositories). I’ve been using it for a couple of days now and really like using it. It also allows you to login to hosted repos from Bit Bucket Kiln, and Github,

Coda 2 & Diet Coda

Panic released Coda 2  at the end of May, along with a new iPad app called Diet Coda. I chose to buy the mac app store version of Coda 2 as it has cloud syncing, as it will be a big help when I do upgrade my mobile platform too. I’ve been using Coda 2 since it was released for purchase.  I am really enjoying the new features, though the new layout and css pop ups has taken some time to get used too, but other than that I really love the new version of Coda and been waiting for an upgrade for a while.

 

With the release of Diet Coda, there is now finally a reason to buy an iPad. I’ve been one who has been holding out to get an iPad as I need a mobile solution that allows me work while away from the work computer. With Diet Coda I think I will be able to work on the go without needing a laptop anymore along with sketching/mockups with the Paper by fifty-three app.
