Bespin 0.1 : edit HTML in Firefox

by indiaprab 1 comments Wave This

Today Mozilla Labs launched an project called Bespin : a web-based code editor to increase developer productivity, enable compelling user experience, and promote the use of open standards. Bespin proposes an open extensible web-based framework for code editing.
Proposed features are
* Ease of Use — the editor experience should not be intimidating and should facilitate quickly getting straight into the code
* Real-time Collaboration — sharing live coding sessions with colleagues should be easy and collaboratively coding with one or more partners should Just Work
* Integrated Command-Line — tools like vi and Emacs have demonstrated the power of integrating command-lines into editors; Bespin needs one, too
* Extensible and Self-Hosted — the interface and capabilities of Bespin should be highly extensible and easily accessible to users through Ubiquity-like commands or via the plug-in API
* Wicked Fast — the editor is just a toy unless it stays smooth and responsive editing files of very large sizes
* Accessible from Anywhere — the code editor should work from anywhere, and from any device, using any modern standards-compliant browser
Bespin 0.1 includes support for basic editing features, such as syntax highlighting, large file sizes, undo/redo, previewing files in the browser, importing/exporting projects, etc.
