Coda and Safari 4: Preview CSS bug and workaround

If you use Coda with Safari 4 Beta, the preview inside Coda doesn’t refresh styles from included CSS-files.

This can get very distracting, if you update some styles in a CSS file, reload the respective page in the preview and see no change at all..

Workarounds:

  • You can use the “Preview in..”-function (to the right of the URL bar) and open Safari externally..
  • ..or simply hold “alt” while pressing the reload button.

Coda PHP-Plugin: Update, 0.96

A new version of the PHP-Plugin for Coda can be downloaded here:

http://www.chipwreck.de/blog/software/coda-php/.

Most important: The previous version had problems when the file was not UTF8-encoded. This version handles such errors better.

At the moment there’s no way in the Coda-API to find out the encoding of the open file. I posted a feature request to the panic guys, but of course I’ve no idea when the Coda Plugin-API will be updated..

And there’s an about box in which the current version of the plugin is shown.
