Live Browser Reloads:
Instantly see changes in your browser, with animation and without hitting the refresh button or installing plugins. Great for tweaking layouts!
Combine and Minify:
Losslessly reduce JPEG and PNG file sizes with one click and see the savings. One less thing to do at deployment. (More compression options coming soon!)
JSHint and JSLint:
Makes debugging scripts fun and easy. Instantly find that one hanging comma that kills IE, or enforce coding styles and best practices across teams.
Sync project settings across teams and computers in an open JSON format. Keep everyone on the same page or easily jumpstart new sites.
Keep just one copy of a file on your drive and easily use it across many projects without worrying about file paths. No more copying files into every new site.
It Just Works:
There,s nothing to install or configure. No mucking around the command line. Just run the app and start working. It,s that easy.
- [Fixed] Excessive “Could Not Start HTTP Server” alerts no longer appear. When your network connection status changes (e.g. your Mac goes to sleep), the server now updates without restarting itself.
- [Fixed] Android and Windows devices no longer infinitely refresh every 5 seconds.
- [Not Fixed] Some of you use Android.
- [Changed] The self-healing feature introduced in the last update has been removed….
- I tested the self-healing feature on a strong, fast WiFi network. If your WiFi is laggy (e.g. a public network), the self-healing routine would repeatedly try to reconnect to CodeKit because the HTML5 websocket protocol has no way to determine if a connection is truly dead or just laggy. In version 2.1.3+, if a page loses touch with CodeKit for 15+ seconds, it will display a banner telling you that the connection is unstable, but it will NOT attempt to automatically reconnect, since the connection may not be dead.
- Auto-refresh on remote devices really requires a solid, fast WiFi network to work well. If the network is bogged down with traffic or you’re at the edge of the router’s signal range, refreshes will probably be slow and/or unreliable.
