Re: Best Firefox plugin(s)

There's a Firefox Color pilot program ( Ghacks discussion , Official Post ) that I was sure was a dumb idea but I was surprised how much I enjoyed setting up themes. Some I came up with: Brown Theme: https://color.firefox.com/?theme=XQAAAAL0AAAAAAAAAABBqYhm849SCiazH1KEGccwS-xNVAVuB8nIFlHwpAD0EMwlVgP...

CommonMark is intended as an authoritative Markdown specification That is remarkably thorough. I have been frustrated by the way different rendering tools have different standards and you have to relearn the process every time you pick up a new tool. Compatibility between different markdown tools w...

Re: Ding-Press - 7zip front-end

@Webfork I'm not impressed and I'm really disappointed. I'm being polite (Heaven knows why). I really should have known better about making the source code available. I'd had my doubts and misgivings and they proved right. I shall not release source code again and be taken advantage of. The license...

Re: Comments suggestion

I wanted to bring up entry comments with the group again. This is important because, although I try hard to write and maintain accurate and clear entries, I know my own tendency on other sites is to look at program comments before even a program description. Those comments immediately underneath a p...

Mark Text

A nifty, minimalist, and cross-platform markdown editor. It's handling of Headings is awesome and it handles nested bullets better than similar tools but I struggled to get it to turn on/off nested bullets/numbers. It's another basic text editor with a big download (79 megs) and high RAM usage (80 m...

Very interesting, thanks for that. Reminds me very much of pdf2htmlEX.
Which uses poppler which in turn uses code from the xpdf toolset - six degrees of seperation :-)

Re: How to pull text out of a PDF and have it wrap correctly

The Xpdf project also includes a PDF text extractor, PDF-to-PostScript converter, and various other utilities. Very interesting, thanks for that. Reminds me very much of pdf2htmlEX .

I found it to be a cool program but I was frustrated that some fairly standard editor features were under the "delux" ...
