WordPress Syntax Mode for Coda

I’m a big fan of Coda by Panic. I’m also a huge fan of WordPress.

Together, Thorsten brings us this add-on for Coda, WordPress Syntax Mode for WordPress.

One thing to note is that these do not get updated automatically, so when a new function comes out in a newer version of WordPress, the author will need to update and then you will need to update. It would be nice if Coda had similar updates to add-ons similar to what WordPress has for updates.

Overall, it’s an extremely helpful tool if you use Coda to develop in WordPress.

Requirements:

Tested on Coda 1.7, might work on previous versions.

Installation:

  1. Download the packed mode file and unpack it.
  2. Copy the PHP-HTML-WP.mode the Coda Modes folder. ~/Library/Application Support/Coda/Modes/
  3. Open a WordPress or PHP file and load the syntax mode in Coda by visiting Text -> Syntax Mode -> PHP-HTML-WP in the toolbar.
  4. Optional: To make this mode the default visit the Editor pane in the Preferences window and select the ‘PHP-HTML-WP’ mode as default file type
