Build websites faster and better. Compile every language. CodeKit automatically compiles all those awesome languages you read about in tutorials. CodeKit automatically refreshes browsers as you work. Like magic.
All the Cool Kids
Add Any Language
Use something that’s not built-in? Easily tell CodeKit how to process files of any type, right in the UI. No stupid config files or plugins required.
Mac, iOS, Android, Windows, Tesla, kitchen fridge… if it’s got a modern browser, it refreshes. All major browser vendors are supported, even over SSL.
Type some text in a form and it magically appears on all your other devices, too. Click a link, it’s clicked on every device. Fast cross-device testing.
No plugins, no script tags, no work. Just click the Preview button in CodeKit and you’re done. You don’t even need certificates for SSL. Really.
CSS changes are injected without reloading the entire page, so you can easily style dialogs and modal content, or just A/B test designs.
Get 70% smaller PNG and JPEG files in one click. SVGs and GIFs, too. Smaller images mean faster websites.
Minify Scripts & CSS
Combine scripts to reduce HTTP requests. Minify your code to reduce file sizes. All the best practices with full control over the details.
Automatically cache-bust scripts and stylesheets so your changes take effect immediately when you deploy.
Minify your code, but see the original version in the browser’s inspector. Works automatically with most languages and without headaches.
Bower is built into CodeKit so you can install and update 56,000+ components with ease. jQuery to WordPress and everything in between.
Spin up a Foundation or a Google Web Starter Kit project in seconds. CodeKit downloads the latest version and sets it up for you, automatically.
CSS Frameworks Galore
All the best CSS frameworks are built-in: Bourbon, Neat, Bitters, Susy, Nib, Jeet, and Compass. Just add an @import statement to your stylesheet and CodeKit makes it work.
Reuse code in multiple projects but keep a single copy of it on your disk. When you update it, everything recompiles to capture the changes.
Check one box and existing projects just work. No updating hundreds of output paths, no changing URLs on pages. It’s magic.
Your Mac’s processor has lots of cores. CodeKit uses all of them to process files in parallel so that builds finish fast.
Do literally anything. Run a custom shell script and see its output in the UI. Or use AppleScript to tell Transmit to upload your site when the build is done.
Easily customize your build process. Add steps with one click. Drag them to reorder. Setting this stuff up shouldn’t require trips to Stack Overflow.
JSHint & JSLint
Not ready to move to ESLint? No problem. JSHint and JSLint are built-in, too. See the exact line and column number of every issue.
Enforce Coding Styles
Got that one guy who uses tabs instead of spaces? Make him fall in line and easily set up rules to keep the whole team writing clean, readable code.
What’s New in CodeKit 3.6
Massively More Efficient
- 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
- //@codekitprepend quiet ‘jquery.js’;
- (This is the same as unchecking the shield checkbox in the UI.)
Importing Skipped Items
- You can now use @codekitprepend and @codekitappend 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.
- Fact #1: CodeKit has always used “appletouchicon” images as your Project Icon, if the image exists in a standard location when you add the project.
- Fact #2: People put things in weird places.
- Fact #3: CodeKit will now, by god, find your image. 84 levels deep in a folder named “not_NOT_porn”? I got you.
- 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.
- Libsass 3.5.2
- Ruby Sass 3.5.6
- MultiMarkdown 6.3.2
- CoffeeScript 2.2.4
- SVGO 1.0.5
- OptiPNG 0.7.7
- Autoprefixer 8.2
- Susy 3.0.3
