We generally try to keep the superlatives to a minimum here, but today I’m making a special exception because I am literally bursting with excitement about the release of Mountee 3.
Mountee — hellomountee.com — is an ExpressionEngine and WordPress add-on/plugin that lets you access your themes as Mac Finder files directly and instantly. I know!! That means you can edit your code using your favorite Mac application instead of being stuck inside the textarea of a CMS, or needing to use SFTP or git to make a simple change. We love it So Much because it makes our lives as web developers so much easier.
Mountee works by connecting to ExpressionEngine and Wordpress transparently with any admin’s username and password, and it loads templates and themes as a drive. It’s a huge timesaver:
- Double-click any template to open and edit it in your favorite coding app.
- To create a new template or theme, just make a new file or folder.
- Develop your own set of re-usable templates and groups, then simply drag them into your Mountee drive to kick-start your next project.
I invite you to give Mountee a try today by downloading it from hellomountee.com. (And if you’re wishing this was available for any CMS besides WordPress or EE, just drop me a line—we’ve got plans in the works for expansion.)
Thanks for your time, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you’ve got questions or feedback. Like, seriously — we really want this tool to be useful to you and to us, so if you have suggestions for ways to improve it… I’m listening.
