CodeKit helps you build websites faster and better.
- Live Browser Reloads: Instantly see changes in your browser, with animation and without hitting the refresh button or installing plugins. Great for tweaking layouts!
- Optimize Images: 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.
- Team Collaboration: Sync project settings across teams and computers in an open JSON format. Keep everyone on the same page or easily jumpstart new sites.
- Easy Frameworks: 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.
- CodeKit now uses 72% fewer CPU cycles to do the same amount of work. Better battery life, cooler laptops.
- All processing tasks are also 11% faster, on average.
- The Quiet Keyword
- //@codekit-prepend quiet 'jquery.js';
- (This is the same as unchecking the shield checkbox in the UI.)
Importing Skipped Items
- You can now use @codekit-prepend and @codekit-append statements to import any file on disk, even if it's in a Skipped Folder or outside of your project.
- If a file can't be found for one of these statements, you'll get an error in the log. Previously, no error was reported and CodeKit just ignored the special comment.
- More Good Stuff
- The progress bar now shows actual progress and is far more accurate during builds.
- Builds can now be canceled.
- Found a couple things in the UI that were not flat. Flattened them with extreme prejudice.
- You can now choose "baseline" or "progressive" output formats for JPEG images.
- Removed silent "Export Data To Russia" feature. Apparently that's now frowned upon.
- Improved image search algorithms
- Optimizing JPEG files could discard their color profiles, causing them to look different.
- Some images could be corrupted during optimization.
- SVGO broke if a certain option was enabled.
- Text in log entries could sometimes display all over the place.
