CodeKit 3.6 – Build websites faster and better.

CodeKit 3.6

CodeKit helps you build websites faster and better.

  • Compile Everything: Process Less, Sass, Stylus, Jade, Haml, Slim, CoffeeScript, Javascript, and Compass files automatically each time you save. Easily set options for each language.
  • 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: Reduce load times by mashing Javascript and CoffeeScript files together and then minifying with Uglify.js. It’s so easy, you’ll giggle like a schoolgirl. Seriously.
  • 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.

What’s New

Version 3.6:

Efficiency improvements
  • 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
  • You can now automatically silence warnings for imported JavaScript and CoffeeScript files using a 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.
Project Icons
  • 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.
