CSSEdit

2.6.118 May 2010

Edit CSS style sheets with ease.

Overview

Note: This app has been discontinued and is no longer supported by or for sale from the developer. It is now built into Espresso.

CSSEdit makes editing stylesheets easy and intuitive. With features like live inline previewing of styles and a unique grouping system, it offers a lot of punch in a low-cost package. Other features include CSS grabbing from other sites, favorites for often-used styles and font sets, etc.

What's new in CSSEdit

Version 2.6.1:
  • enables Typekit support in previews.
  • improves external editing and fixes some small interface glitches.

Requirements for CSSEdit

  • Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later

Apparently CSSEdit has been discontinued. At least thats what this looks like to me: "Because future versions of CSSEdit will be integrated into Espresso exclusively, CSSEdit 2 is no longer offered for sale separately. It will no longer be updated as a standalone product, but we will continue to offer email support for it." http://macrabbit.com/espresso/2/ I'm pretty bummed myself, and not sure what they are thinking.

I have tried Espresso many times and I really want to like it, however its not a good fit for me. When it comes to design, I still continue to use CSS Edit for my needs it is/was hands down one of the best software programs that ever lived. Please bring it back.

I agree, have tried Espresso as well, mainly because they claim that CSSEdit version 3.0 is in it (Quote: The one and only CSSEdit 3 — CSSEdit's award-winning visual tools, now inside Espresso.) - well it is .... but apparently it is now lacking functions and user friendliness .... very disappointing.

I would have paid more for a seperate and full CSSEdit 3 then for Espresso with the diminished CSSEdit 3 Light.
Macrabbit: I am more than sure that you would be a CSS Editor market leader when you would have continued developing CSSEdit 2.6.x seperately - what is keeping you from doing so and why did you even condier putting it inside Espresso, wasn't Coffee enough? ;-)

Yes, Misha, it was rolled into Espresso. And not everybody likes the "one program to rule them all" approach to programming. It really would be nice to see CSSEdit 3. I still use CSSEdit 2, but it's showing its age (though I was able to hack it to recognize some CSS3....)

I am glad I was able to download CSSEdit from Macupdate. I couldn't find it on MacRabbit.com. Too bad it was discontinued. It was a great application (and still is).

Just to add my voice to the people mourning the death of this application. CSSEdit was a major part of my daily workflow for years. I own Coda too, and love it, but sometimes you just want a clean, effective CSS editor, and that's what this is. After a couple of years away from the web design business I was very sad to find that CSSEdit has been killed off. I have no need for Espresso (Coda does me fine, thanks). After this length of time I guess the developers are unlikely to reverse their decision, but if you miss CSSEdit, as I do, I'd encourage you to email them and politely ask them to consider resuming development. I realise that small businesses only have finite resources available, but if there's enough demand then I'm sure they can justify the time and effort to keep it up to date. In the meantime I'll be crossing my fingers the old version keeps working as long as possible...

even if this genius developer has stopped the updates, I've found a way to have it running fullscreen on lion with css window floating on top. Just use afloat and menuanddockless and you are ready to go.

One of the best apps ever written for the Mac. Why oh why did they integrate it into Espresso and remove the standalone? Espresso is $79. I would pay $100 to get CSSEdit alone. It was that good. Of course I can use CSSEdit within Espresso but it doesn't have that instant responsiveness that CSSEdit had, and it crashes.

Don't like new MacUpdate? Back to old design.
