First Steps with Mac Version of OPML Editor

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;">
    C:\My Documents\OPML\www


    it should go to

  • 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.
