Three years ago, we launched Coda 1.0, a new set of building blocks that would allow anyone to make docs as powerful as apps. We followed up soon after with Coda 2.0, adding new building blocks designed for all the teams we saw collaborating in Coda. We simplified common patterns with templates and introduced a customer-friendly pricing model called Maker Billing.
Even though Coda 2.0 brought teams’ workflows closer together, we couldn’t fully realize our vision of the all-in-one doc until we bridged a few more divides, some of which have been entrenched in documents for decades. To truly unite pages with tables, authoring with publishing, and maybe most importantly, our product team with the Coda community, we decided to take the last two years to rebuild our editor and reimagine our Packs ecosystem. And today, all that hard, important work pays off.
We’re excited to announce Coda 3.0: the doc that brings it all together: words, data, teams, and the whole maker community.
Here’s the summary:
A new editor. This complete rewrite unlocks features like (1) customizable page layouts, so you can finally have content side by side. And (2) the ability to bring the endless capabilities of a page into a table row with canvas columns. All built with collaboration and performance in mind.
A new Packs ecosystem. We’re inviting anyone to come make Packs that will change how docs look, work, and integrate. You can do it right in your browser with minimal coding necessary.
We’ve also kicked off a series of business investments:
- A marketplace for both free and paid offerings
- A revenue-share based affiliate system
- A Maker Fund to kickstart a thriving ecosystem
Right now we have dozens of Packs, soon we’ll have thousands.
And hundreds of your most requested updates: Everything from dark mode, to custom templates, to reactions. Details matter.
Feel free to read the full story on the blog. We can’t wait to see what you Coda.
