coda -w not waiting #7

I did configure 'coda -w' as my EDITOR in .profile and checked with 'echo $EDITOR'.
Now if I git commit (or manually coda -w somefile) it does not work (i.e. coda opens, but Terminal is not waiting).

I installed coda 1.0.3 via brew


Thanks for the heads up. This is fixed in c8e973d

If you want to install via homebrew, go give Homebrew/legacy-homebrew#12430 a 👍 :)

Now, if I "git commit" it opens Coda 2 with the COMMIT_EDITMSG open, but about 2 seconds later, Coda (1.7.5) is also launched in the background.
I can type a commit message, but another couple of seconds later, "git commit" ends with "Aborting commit due to empty commit message."


I think I've got a fix for this, but I don't have a computer with Coda 1 handy... Do me a favor and test the develop branch before I cut a new release?


Not right just yet, but at least it won't open Coda 1 anymore.

When the file opens, it waits approximately 5 seconds, but after that it is over.
If I 'git commit' it still says 'Aborting commit due to empty commit message.' after that 5 seconds, but when I'm fast enough, and write and save the message file before that time frame, it works.


Try develop one more time? Should be fixed now.

Now it works like a charm,

@bobthecow Use bundle id rather than application name.
Fixes #7 when both Coda 1 and Coda 2 are installed on the same system.

@birnenjoe Thanks for your help. These fixes have been released in v1.0.5, and they'll be in homebrew soon.
