Nova from Panic.inc - a new player on IDE front (macOS native)

Recommended Posts

Hey there, hope you are all well!

I would like to introduce Nova from Panic.inc, a new IDE and code editor for web developers. The application is developed natively for macOS and is the successor of Coda 2 (if you know it).

I'm sitting here in my home office (because of Corona) and yesterday I got the invitation for the beta. Now I have been testing Nova for about 1 day.

The application is incredibly fast! I haven't used anything comparable so far (including VSCode).
The user interface is very clean and skinnable.

Here is a small excerpt of the already integrated features (which of course can be extended by plugins):

- Project management
- Integrated Remote Publishing

- Integrated Git Handling (Push, Pull, Commit, etc...)

- Integrated Code Completion (PHP, JavaScript, ...)
- Full featured integrated remote file browser for all thinkable protocols

- Integrated web preview
- Integrated console (local and remote)
- Tasks (this seems to be huge! I'm telling you more when I figured out what this can do)
- etc...

This will definitely be my IDE for the next years!

Nova is currently in closed beta. No new tester are accepted. But should be in open beta in the next few weeks!

Have a nice week and stay healthy!

Greetings,
Martin

I'll certainly take a look at it once it's in beta, but I'm wondering if you can tell us something about which languages it actually supports and if it uses something like language server protocol? I used coda ages ago and I liked their batteries included approach at the time.

Nova definitely supports language server protocol and comes with a bunch of predefined languages! The built in PHP extension is a bit rudimentary (like in VSCode) but there will be IntelliSense extensions available.

That sounds great. I'm mostly using elixir nowadays and they have a language server implementation, as most editors don't bother implementing it by default.
