I got around to downloading and running a Hello World example with Dave Winer’s OPML editor which has now been ported to the Mac. I like outliners in general, and there seems to be some promise this new outliner.
Anyway these are just first thoughts:
- The OPML icon is ugly and pixilated, typical developer stuff.
- The directions assume there is only a Windows version after step 1. Instead of the saving the first document to <div class="codecolorer-container text vibrant overflow-off" style="overflow:auto;white-space:nowrap;">
it should go to1
- After creating a test outline and looking at it in a browser, I’m not seeing any magic, but heh I only spent 10 minutes tops.
Now to look at the Instant Outliner functionality. Dynamic outlines shared among a project team, interesting idea.
