Challenge accepted, Google doc 2 blog

Last week, Jane from The.com challenged us to replicate a tool that converts a Google Doc into a blog or website. For reference, she sent me this article as inspiration, which was nice. Of course, we accepted the challenge and converted our learnings into a video tutorial! So, if you are curious about how we did this, watch the video below! 👇

Coda drops a huge update

We love Coda, after all, we've built our no-code database in 1 day using Coda (with the help of Kenny Mendes). Even better, we run our entire business, including the scheduling and planning of this newsletter, using Coda. So yea, it's fair to say that we are super-fans.

Coda 3.o comes packed with new features like Page Layouts, Canvas Column Types, and a brand new Pack Studio (beta).

Here's the tl;dr:

  • A rebuilt Coda editor: This huge undertaking unlocks side-by-side content and brings pages into tables for the flexibility of a true all-in-one doc.
  • An open Packs platform: We’re inviting the maker community to develop and expand Coda with us.
  • A marketplace: The Gallery will have both free and paid offerings. To help makers build their businesses on Coda, we’re kicking off a series of investments: a revenue-share based affiliate program and a Maker Fund to get entrepreneurs off the ground.
  • Hundreds of your most requested updates: The details matter. From custom templates to dark mode to, of course, performance, we’ve shipped a steady stream of updates to level up the experience of working in Coda. 

If you are interested in the full announcement, you can find it here.
