Panic, Inc., promotes Diet Coda with the tag line, "Make quick web fixes to go." However, I have found to be potentially much more useful than that in the few days I have used it. The adaptive keyboard layouts, code completion, and Bluetooth keyboard support work well for coding sessions longer than just a quick fix. Backed by reference documentation on a companion smartphone or even an Amazon Kindle, Diet Coda might tempt some developers to leave their notebooks behind.
