    What do you use for writing coldFusion?

    I am just starting a new job, using a MAC and writing coldfusion (both firsts for me). Right now I am using BBedit to write my cf, but was wondering if anyone had experience with other programs they would recommend?

    When I'd do ColdFusion development, I always used HomeSite but it is Windows only.

    I believe Dreamweaver can code coldFusion as well.

    Yeah, dreamweaver certainly can do CF. That's what I use for my CF coding...and it's definately the best option I've seen.

    Thanks, I am loading DreamWeaver back up and am going to give it a try today. BBedit isn't necessarily treating me badly, I'd just like some more features that it doesn't have.

    I use Dreamweaver only when I really need to edit the graphics. I use CFEclipse for about 90% of my work.

    Although no longer supported (completely) by Adobe, Homesite is pretty good, and "inexpensive" compared to there other programs

    CF is somehow better for coding but I use DreamWeaver as well. Good for visual coding, DreamWeaver is used for a better analysis of a page.

    I've decided I really don't like using DreamWeaver. I got it with my CS3 package, but its too heavy. I am using Panic's Coda primarily now. Every now and then it gets funny with recognizing some CF language, but for the most part it works really well. Plus, it has a tonna nice features, like built in terminal and s/ftp.

    I used DreamWeaver for ColdFusion programming. I think it is the best. And I am using HomeSite+ for ASP and PHP.

    Sublime is a great text editor as well. You can use their "trial" version without limits and has tons of plugins.
