Espresso Kaboom for all-in-one web design coding

I’ve been using the beta release of Espresso Kaboom for my HTML markup, CSS and FTP in our Vancouver web design company now for over a month and I’m really liking it even though there are still some bugs. Although, this is understandable and the reason why it is still in beta. I love how all of the benefits of CSS Edit are now packaged into Espresso.

Here are a few of the features:

  • Visual CSS editing with a web kit browser
  • All of the features of CSS Edit
  • Have both the coding and live browser open at the same time
  • No more bouncing between CSS Edit and Coda
  • Great interface for coding
  • Drag-and-drop FTP upload
  • Immediate saving and uploading to the server (This can be dangerous)
  • Code snippets

Since it’s still in beta, I’m hoping they fix some of the bugs I’ve run across

  • While viewing the server files in column view, when you click on a directory to open it in a new column it doesn’t open the first time
  • I want to be able to have the option of closing the file info in the right side of the code window
  • Some application instability

I’m sure MacRabbit will fix the major bugs before the full release. From what I’ve seen so far, I will be buying Espresso 2 for our Vancouver web design company when it’s ready for final release.
