Keep your software simple! a appraisal of editplus - software


I like my software simple. If it's too complicated or arduous to appear out, I don't use it.

For example, I have tried a lot of atypical programs for creating my web pages. These include:

  • Namo Webeditor

  • Microsoft Frontpage

  • Dreamweaver

  • NetObjects Fusion

  • Hotdog Pro

  • CoffeeCup HTML Editor

and a array of other commercial, shareware and freeware editors. Each time I tried one of these, I found it too complicated. What are all these "panels" for? How to I see the underlying HTML code for my page? What's a "web"? How do I begin to use this package? I just couldn't get answers to my questions easily.

Now my hard disk is stuffed from the budding add up to of HTML editors I got from download. com and then abandoned.

A fasten of years ago, I naked EditPlus. It's a very clear-cut and easy-to-use editor. Yet is also has a load of cleverness if you need it.

You can use EditPlus both as a text editor and as an HTML editor. This nifty piece of software has an home preview capability so that you you get a quick check on your HTML code. It also has a spelling checker, word wrap, and a word counter. It even includes FTP functions so that you can upload your web pages to your host provider.

I wrote this article, formatted it for publication, added HTML code and in print it on my web page using EditPlus.

So far, I haven't read a guide for EditPlus and don't feel I need to since the curriculum is so by instinct easy to use.

I admit that you need to learn some HTML if you want to build and edit your web pages with EditPlus. But I get jumpy when I try to coin a web page with one of those designer correspondence where the HTML code is covert from view.

I keep going back to EditPlus after difficult those other complex web blueprint programs.

If you want to test it, you can download a trial of EditPlus from http://www. editplus. com. The cost of the software is least (only about $30) and well worth it.

Why can't more software developers be a consequence the KISS philosophy? Keep it Simple, Stupid! I'm confident they would capture more of us simple-minded users if they followed this principle. Then it would be Keep It Simple, Smarty!
