Tools I couldn’t live without

My leaf – Coda – http://panic.com/coda/

Coda is a great one window web development tool that makes editing code a breeze. It integrates nicely with GIT version control and works really fast.

My truck – Transmit – http://panic.com/transmit/

Transmit comes from the same family as Coda so therefore the user interface is really clean and simple. This FTP tool comes packed with features such as Amazon S3 support, synchronisation options and many more.

Web developer toolbar – http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/

This is a great tool for working inside your browser. It has lots of options to edit live code and also options for you to make quick edits to the look and feel of your sites.

TinyGrab – http://tinygrab.com/

Simply put, this is a screenshot sharing app that integrates with Mac OSX’s default screen grabbing app. Once you have taken a screenshot TinyGrab puts it on the web for you and creates a direct link to your image that you can send to your peers. To top it all off, you can also annotate these screenshots.

BetterSnapTool – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/bettersnaptool/id417375580?mt=12

Probably the only feature of Windows that I missed when using my Mac was the ability to drag a window to the left and make it half the size, or to the top right corner and make it a quarter. With this nifty little tool you no longer have to manually resize your windows!
