Panic today announced that it is releasing a new version of its popular Coda coding app that brings support for the new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar, as well as a variety of other improvements…

The update, which brings the app to version 2.6 fixes its fair share of bugs, but the star of the show is support for Touch Bar. With Touch Bar support, developers can more easily switch between Editor and Preview modes, indent/outdent/comment lines, jump between lines, create sites, and much more:

Coda’s Touch Bar support focused on the Editor/Preview, Files, and Sites views. Here are a few things you can do super easily on the Touch Bar, without having to take your fingers off the keyboard or move a pointer:

  • Instantly switch between Editor and Preview
  • Indent/outdent/comment lines
  • Jump to a line
  • Insert hex colors using a color picker (on the bar!)
  • Create sites
  • Switch between file browser views
  • Create new files and folders
  • Open the Web Inspector
  • More!

The update to Coda comes not long after Panic announced it was discontinuing its popular Status Board app as it struggled to monetize. The move was met with disappointment from many of the app’s fans, but the company’s Coda coding app is clearly here to stay.

Coda is available from Panic’s website.
