Say hello to the new Espresso, our biggest update ever.
The Web is a big, beautiful mess. In this brand new iteration, Espresso becomes a big, beautiful app again. Our original internal mission statement was “CSSEdit for everything”. At some point, all the other things that go into making a web editor had us lose sight of the fact that this must start with being a fantastically useful styling tool. With Espresso v3, we think we’re back on track.
The gorgeously redesigned Espresso introduces a host of new features. Some of our favorites:
- Live Preview with Browser Xray — See your projects update live as you edit and style, in Espresso or in Chrome, Firefox or Safari. Even Xray works inside other browsers. Additionally, thanks to the local HTTP workflow, page navigation and resource loading work exactly like they would when uploaded.
- Supercharged Live Styling with SCSS and LESS — With out-of-the-box SCSS+LESS editing support, complex style sheets are a first class experience. Add Overrides for live websites into the mix, and experience a new kind of styling productivity.
- Dynamo Auto-Build — Powering the new dynamic style sheets workflow is Dynamo, our brand new built-in build system. That's not all it does, though. As an in-app beta, use smart HTML and Markdown for modular components, amazingly integrated with Live Preview.
- Editor Improvements That Are Just Sublime — Re-Indent HTML, CSS and JS. Edit and delete multiple selections at once with Multi Edit. Indentation guides to make your code extra readable. Zen shortcuts with snippets integration, and toolbar favorites. Open Quickly. All on top of the great editor we already had.
