ZuluPad Development Release

Post by aetmos » Mon Feb 20, 2006 5:25 am

Hi All,

I'm releasing a development version of an app I've been writing called Zulupad. It's essentially a personal wiki "notepad on crack" application. If some of you wouldn't mind checking it out, and letting me know if it works for you, I'd really appreciate it. I especially could use some Mac testers, because I only have one Mac, so I don't have any way of testing the OS X build on a machine other than the one I'm using to build the applicaitons. So, there might be dependencies that I'm not aware of. I'm pretty sure the Windows version runs well, though. Anyway, here's the link:

Thanks,
Tom

Hi there,

Very interesting concept! If you would add more 'wiki' like features such as:

- Formatting and bulleted lists
- Images
- Task bar

Maybe a preview pane and an edit pane, etc

It looks as a nice well looking simple text tool. Ohh btw your about box is empty here ;-)

Whoops! Thanks for catching that...it's fixed now.
- Formatting and bulleted lists

- Task bar
I'm not sure what you mean by "Task bar", but Images and Formatting are on my list of things to do eventually. I'm torn between implementing them myself and waiting for wxRichTextCtrl to become more mature...At the very least I will probably add some simple things like bolding pretty soon.
Maybe a preview pane and an edit pane, etc
This one probably won't happen. It's my goal to keep it simple for the average user. I think preview/edit panes would tend to confuse a lot of people.

Thanks much for giving it a try, and taking the time to make some comments! It's much appreciated.

If anybody out there with a Mac wouldn't mind letting me know if it works, I'd really appreciate that, too!

Thanks,
Tom
