I created a coda plugin that does math for you. The other day I got tired of constantly opening spotlight in osx to type a calculation for my responsive website layouts. Not only was that annoying, I couldn’t copy the result (or didn’t know how), to paste it into my code, plus, the results were always large decimals with like 15 decimal places, I could’t remember all that.
So enough was enough. I looked up how to create a coda plugin. Panics website has a wealth of information on the subject. They require you to download a special plugin maker app that streamlines the process, you’ll see the download link on their developer page.
Anyways, my plugin is pretty simple. It allows you to type a mathematical expression right in your code, then you just highlight it, and press
cmd + Y. It then places the result right in place of the expression. So yeah, if you havent created a plugin for coda because you think its too hard, it really isn’t. The best part is, you can use any language you are comfortable with.
Also, here is the repo on github.
