Nova for Mac is an advanced code editor that strives to offer its powerful feature set to both novices and professionals. Built from the ground up to empower all code developers to accelerate their daily workflows, Nova code editor features native support for text code management in all currently popular code languages, has extensive API support, support for plugin extensions, and a very sleek interface that promotes easy tool and service discovery.

Nova can handle text code development in CoffeeScript, CSS, Diff, ERB, Haml, HTML, INI, JavaScript, JSON, JSX, Less, Lua, Markdown, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, Sass, SCSS, Smarty, SQL, TSX, TypeScript, XML, and YAML.

  • A powerful editor
  • A themeable interface
  • Flexible workflows
  • Useful tools
  • Robust extensions
  • And lots of settings

The development process can be dramatically accelerated with the help of built-in macros, a wide variety of editing, compiling, and running tasks, streamlined access to various tools and reference documents (available as the new tabs inside the active projects), and a versatile sidebar that is home to a wide variety of tools such as local file browser, remote file browser, symbol navigator, text clips, task reports, Git, File tracking, and much more.

More demanding developers can dramatically expand the functionality of Nova with the help of the built-in API and extensions, which can add support for new languages, enhance the sidebar with new tools, and craft new themes (the app has built-in theme support that can automatically change in accordance with the current Mac theme), various templates, scripts, and anything else user can think of. With versatile Settings and Debugging tool, Nova represents one of the most powerful and engaging code editors available on the Mac market.

Nova for macOS can be tested for FREE, but its full capability is unlocked in its premium version that comes only in a form of a lifetime license. Owners of the previous code editor app called Coda can upgrade to Nova for a vastly reduced price. It is important to note that future upgrades are not distributed to users for free, who can after the first Free Year purchase a separate upgrade subscription license.

Note: 30 days trial version.
