OmmWriter brings its clean, calm writing interface to Windows

I have a thing for full-screen text editing. I use WriteMonkey for my creative writing needs, and VIM in a full-screen PuTTY session for my Web development work. That being the case, I'm all over the monospace, dark-background, focused editing scene. OmmWriter attempts to take that aesthetic and make it somehow more spiritual, with three picturesque backgrounds and ambient background audio...

WriteMonkey Version 2 Preview 1 is now out, with added pizzazz

WriteMonkey is the best full-screen text editor available for Windows today. There, I said it. And now, the first preview for Version 2 has been released, with a whole bunch of enhancements and goodies: Info bar colors: WriteMonkey has a very handy infobar at the bottom (or top) of the screen, showing all sorts of text statistics, as well as the current time.

DLS Review: Why is Komodo Edit the best free PHP editor on the market today

I have strong feelings about text editors for programmers. I'm not talking about Vim or Emacs here; I'm talking about stuff for mere mortals -- PSPad, jEdit, Notepad++. Those are all editors I have used extensively over the years, and each time I become convinced that "this is it -- this is the last text editor I will ever need," only to then find out it wasn't quite as great as I thought. ...

WriteMonkey is an unbelievable full-screen text editor

I have a thing for full-screen editors. I also have a thing for Markdown syntax. I wanted to start writing some of my texts using Markdown in a text editor. Amazingly enough, I was not able to find a Win32 command-line implementation of Markdown. Well, WriteMonkey saved the day. That's just one of the features of this utterly incredible full-screen editor. It's got everything I need for writing,...

Lee's Favorite Apps: Notepad++

For the longest time, I thought I needed to use Dreamweaver to edit my web code. That bothered me. I didn't like the way it handled saving files to my remote server, and it was just too damn bulky for my taste. And there's the price tag. I wasn't really a fan of that either. Fortunately, I discovered Notepad++. It's totally free, extremely powerful, and does everything I need an editor to do (and...

Flipping the Linux switch: Linux web tools, Pt. 5 - Readers love editing

Seriously guys, we love you. Okay, fine, maybe not in the way your mom loves you, or your dog loves you, or your significant other loves you. But we definitely love you in that totally uncomfortable, care-free, "Hey, let us buy you a Red Bull and Pop Rocks next time we're at the convenience store" sort of way. We don't just love you for your looks, or your superior intelligence, or because you can...

Paint-Mono - A GIMP alternative?

The Download Squad team got really excited this morning. When we contemplated installing Paint-Mono, we pictured it and GIMP arming themselves with swords, screaming "There can be only one!" We thought there would be an epic battle, and the victor would lop off the other's head in a firestorm of light. Instead, we ended up compiling Mono. Paint-Mono is a Unix port of Paint.NET. To install, it...
