Kupu: Go Kick The Tires While I Sleep

Ok, so another thing to play around with as mentioned by Edd Dumbill over at his site is the Mozilla compatible (and it works with that one icky browser that so many people think of as shorthand for the Internet) text editor called Kupu. I messed with the live demo and was pretty impressed there were a couple things available on the menu bar that didn't work the way that I expected them to or at all but this is a temporary version of the demo so I can't really get picky about issues of permissions and whatnot. What is really frightening and I wouldn't have really noticed this had Edd not pointed it out in his mention of Kupu: the thing is Javascript. Jeez. There is something incredibly masochistic about trying to do big implementations in a language that limited in scope but I'm impressed with the results.

Go give it a shot. I'd love to hear feedback from folks using IE. I don't even have a copy loaded in the Codeweavers stuff on this machine. Let the rest of us know how it goes. I've gotta get some sleep.

  1. Seems to go in IE, although it does that annoying flash of unstyled content before everything resolves the way it’s supposed to. There’s a hack for that (naturally) that’s supposed to prevent that from happening, but it eludes me at the moment.

    Pretty cool, all in all. Most of the web-based editors I’ve seen are not particularly friendly to Moz. This one is and it’s free, another theme I’ve noticed with HTML based editors. That it’s all in JS is a little unnerving.
