Nova is hyper-fast and flexible code editor with all the features you want: smart autocomplete, multiple cursors, a Minimap, editor overscroll, tag pairs and brackets, and way, way more. Can a native Mac code editor really be that much better? Find out.
It all starts with our first-class text-editor. It’s new, hyper-fast, and flexible, with all the features you want: smart autocomplete, multiple cursors, a Minimap, editor overscroll, tag pairs and brackets, and way, way more.
It’s beautiful. And clean. And fun.
You can make Nova look exactly the way you want, while still feeling Mac-like. Bright, dark, cyberpunk, it’s all you. Plus, themes are CSS-like and easy to write. Nova can even automatically change your theme when your Mac switches from light to dark mode.
Nova doesn’t just help you code. It helps your code run. You can easily create build and run tasks for your projects. We didn’t have them in Coda, but boy do we have them now. They’re custom scripts that can be triggered at any time by toolbar buttons or keyboard shortcuts.
Now, this is important.
Editing text is just part of what Nova does. We’ve bundled in extremely useful tools to help you get your work done quickly and efficiently. They’re all fast and native too, of course.
Nova has a robust extensions API.
A Nova extension can do lots of things, like add support for new languages, extend the sidebar, draw beautiful new themes and syntax colors, validate different code, and much more.
People have strong editor opinions.
And we’re here to help. Nova has a whole host of settings. We have easily customizable key bindings. We have custom, quickly-switchable workspace layouts. And we have loads of editor tweaks, from matching brackets to overscroll.
