Espresso 2 is a visual text editor for design and develop for the web. By default it has good features like Zencoding, a nice CSS editor (CSSEdit 3), project manager and FTP publishing (like Coda). Also you can expand it yourself with extra plugins called sugars.
Today the king of the editors is Sublime Text 2 and all people use it and extend it, but i wanted to try something more visual, some editor all-in-one to code styles too and minimally extensible. The user experience of CSSEdit for me was good and all this has led me to Coda and finally Espresso.
Espresso 2 is a 2 year old editor and in comparison with Sublime2 is older, and less customizable, but for me it is enough. You can change the theme or create a new one yourself (that’s beacause its a simple .css file), also you can install some sugars for the modern life, some of mine are:
One of the things I miss in Espresso is a user interface for svn/git. Something for version control like it has for FTP. Let’s see in next versions.
