Nova is Here.

By Cabel


A quick belated announcement: after years in development, Nova, our next-generation, fully native, future-focused code editor — only available for macOS — is here.

The Future

Rewritten from the ground up, Nova is lighter, faster, more flexible, and deeply feature-packed. It has a modern, hyper-speed editor with all the features you’d expect. It has a customizable user interface. It has a robust extensions ecosystem. It can work on local projects, or work directly off your server. It has tools like a Terminal and Transmit-based File Browser. It’s designed from the ground up to enable complex web workflows that might have build, run, and deployment phases… but it’s still great for a good old static site.

I could go on all day, but you should just check out the website, and try the free 30-day demo.

Own It Forever

Nova is $99. And when you buy it, you own it — it will never expire. It also includes one free year of updates — including new features and fixes — which we’ll release the moment they’re ready. Also, if you want, you can get additional years of updates for only $49 a year. But that’s totally optional, and there’s also no penalty to signing up for updates later, either when you’re ready, or when we’ve added a new feature you want.

Just The Beginning

We have big plans for Nova. We are, as they say, just getting started.

If you have any questions, first check the Panic Library, which is an invaluable resource. Then, feel free to drop us a line.

We hope you enjoy it. And welcome to the future!

Hello! Is there any ETA for student pricing?

I’m excited to try out Nova. If it doesn’t replace VS Code entirely for me, it will still be wonderful for the times I need to make hotfixes and can’t be bothered to use scp (always).

Nova is fantastic. My only “wishlist” is that there be an official LaTeX syntax highlighter, although I would also like Java and C/C++/Go support out of the box as well.

iOS version/comparable tool?

Switch from VS Code. Way faster and more efficient. Thanks guys!

I thought it would take me longer to get used to a new editor, but I was wrong.
Well done, Panic.

I will definitely try Nova once it supports the Dart language.

I was a Coda 1/2 customer for a long time so I guess there is a high chance that I change from WebStorm to Nova if the quality is up to Coda 2 at its prime.

There is this comment in Reddit implying that it would not be that hard to add Dart to Nova, maybe worth looking: https://www.reddit.com/r/FlutterDev/comments/jjm6mi/does_anyone_fancy_making_a_dartflutter_extension/gafgyhd?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
