CodaPanic just released version 1.5 of the popular all-in-one website editor, Coda. Included with this release was the ability to import and export clips into and out of Coda. We took it upon ourselves to add almost every tag on the very useful WordPress function list to Coda and export them as a group for y’all to use. Just download the zip, extract, double-click the file, and you’re ready to go!
