New Script Editor In Development

Tuesday September 7th, 1999

Pete Collins is working on a "cross platform ASCII script editor written in XUL and javascript" You can check out his latest progress (with lots of screenshots) at his website. You can also fire up Mozilla and see the beginnings of the project. If you are interested in helping out, send Pete a note.

It's amazing what you can do with user interfaces in Mozilla but I still don't understand what that program is about. It just looks like something between notepad and emacs but is still a good example of what will be possible with Mozilla.

Yes, I understand now. Thinking about it I think it's a good idea and I wish you every success with it. It's just a shame I've got no time to help.

Just downloaded it then, I'll take it home tonight. Hope it works with M9.

Just think, services like Hotmail and so on would really benefit from this XUL stuff. It would be like using a real mail client, but over the web (through firewalls and proxies).

That would be a killer app.
