Website for Daniel Glazman's Disruptive Innovations Launches

Friday October 3rd, 2003

Robert Accettura wrote in to tell us that Daniel Glazman's new company now has its own website. The online presence of Disruptive Innovations is still incomplete and has several broken links, though the products page features some information about Composer++, an improved version of the Mozilla Web page editor.

MozillaZine has previously reported on Daniel's new business, which has already been contracted by to develop a Composer-based Web editing tool.

I swear I paid nobody to be topic'ed on MozillaZine three times in less than a month :-)

Yes the web site is still incomplete because completing it is unfortunately a low priority on my radar these days. Robert, just wondering, how did you find it?

#2 the question is:

Glazou: How will look Composer++ <--> Mozilla line? Do You plan to attache Composer++ to Mozilla Suite and how will look the futur of Composer inside Mozilla? Will You still use Mozilla Bugzilla to track bugs? I wish You good luck with new project, and i'm very happy that Compoer will be still developed, probably, even more rapidly then previously, but i'm afraid about Composer as a part of Mozilla Foundation's product.

eGandalf: Composer++ is a product my company will build for itself. It is not related to any contract I have. Composer++ is based on Mozilla (standalone) Composer, and I'll keep adding code to the Mozilla cvs tree, using bugzilla and everything like in the past. It's also based on extensions I am working on and the status of these extensions has yet to be determined, but some of them could be completely proprietary, and outside of the Mozilla cvs tree. This does not mean they are not going to be Open Source... Just a question of license... So don't be afraid, Mozilla (standalone) Composer is going to live, and live well.

#5 Will Composer++ still live as a Crossplatform edit

Will Composer++ still live as a Crossplatform editor? I'm on the Mac an fear this is the end of composer for Mac users. I hope not.

A few editor peers are Mac buddies... Mozilla is a cross-platform, Mozilla apps should _all_ be cross-platform. Enough for your fears ?-)

#7 Feature Request

I would like to see the ability to publish to an SFTP site added to Composer++. Quanta does this and DreamWeaver MX 2004 just recently added SFTP support. I think more and more web servers only allow SSH connections and not FTP/Webdav, rendering Composer as it is unable to publish changes directly.

We're a small firm but still need dozens of Dreamweaver licenses. If we could instead buy a module for Composer that added this support for, say, 50 bucks per user, we'd be all over it. As would surely many others.

The STTS idea to replace XSLT seems interesting. I assume it's still in the planning stages though. Glazman, could give us more of an idea of what you have in mind?

#9 LOL try to validate his site ;)

Hey. let me take yours, you loser!

Stop trolling moron, if you want it to validate then send him a patch ;)


#12 He should be an example!

I would at least expect him to validate his own site, as a former W3C member for AOL. I guess this is something future prospects will also look into, before getting into a deal with Daniel. Or is this a statement about his (former) W3C work?

/ignore blake :D

Daniel says above that's it's unfinished. He wasn't expecting anyone to look at it yet.

#14 validate or not, that is the question

Hey guys, don't forget I did not officially announce the site, that's it's under construction. On another note, and to be more precise than Blake, don't you have anything else to rant about? I am 100% busy with administrative stuff and the "purity" of my site is honestly the last thing on my mind now. First, get work; second, work; third, get a life. N-th, make the site validate....

Daniel, I started the title with "LOL" and it ends with ";)" so I guess some people, inclusing you, missed that part of the message. I didn't 'rant' about your site nor your new startup, but the fact is that other people might think the same, without speaking out like I did, just a reminder.

PS: getting your site validated shouldn't be to hard for someone like you. You know all the tricks, so I wonder why you didn't spent the extra 30 minutes, if it takes you that long ;)

#17 yeah, just 30 minutes...

by glazou

Because 30 minutes of extra time is a luxury I don't have these days ?

There must be people that want to help you, in return of all the great work you've done. Hey, I am no webmaster myself, and also out of time but else...

This discussion is closed for me. No need to reply, save your time ;)
