Lisa Hill from Blue Fish has published an excellent article covering how to customize the EditLive! rich text editor in Web Publisher. It includes many of my favorite ways to get the most out of EditLive! as well.
I’ve always known you could do a lot of programmatic stuff with Amazon but I’ve simultaneously been too lazy to actually look into it in detail and never really needed to. However, I’ve stumbled across instructions for auto-mounting an EBS volume which turns out to be very handy, and leads on to the particularly awesome right_aws ruby gem.
Lots of useful looking stuff for working with EC2, S3 and EBS volumes that I can see me taking a lot more advantage of in the future.
I have far more tabs open in NetNewsWire than I can handle, so here’s all the stuff that’s open more so I can find them again if I need them than because I actually want to comment on them or do something with them right now:
When Can I Use? – Useful page for getting a rough idea of the current state of support for web stuff in browsers. Not perfect but definitely a very good starting point.
HTML 5 Rendering Section – Actually the entire draft spec is a good reference for anyone parsing or rendering HTML. Since EditLive! does both this is likely to be useful.
Factors That Improve Online Experiences – Interesting research on how user’s navigate web sites and the misconceptions designers have about how usable their sites are.
Replacement iPhone Earphones Review – since my standard set seem to be dying this looks handy.
How To Unlock the Huawei E220 HSDPA modem – can’t really see that I’ll need to use this, but useful to know it’s possible.
iUI looks like a promising library for making the development of iPhone webapps much simpler. Worth keeping an eye on since there’s no barrier to entry for iPhone webapps unlike with native iPhone apps.
The Rabbit Hole: Smooth JList Target Animation
There's a JTree animation in the next post too. Cool, but the code is awful so it's probably better to just reimplement the generic technique.
