Bluefish... It's A Keeper

Filed under

Reviews

Bluefish is a handy, text-based HTML editor for anybody that needs to crank out a lot of Web content, without a lot of fluff. Don't be fooled by the low release number. Bluefish is a mature application that does its job quickly and efficiently.

Naturally, you'll need to use a browser to view HTML produced in Bluefish. It's a small price to pay and is actually beneficial, because I'm assured of how the page will look to a reader.

In this article we'll look at why you might choose Bluefish over a more GUI oriented editor, like Quanta. Quanta is a great full featured development environment. It's a little overkill for my needs right now. For the Windows converts that might be familiar creating pages with Frontpage, Word or OpenOffice.org (on Windows), Bluefish gives you the power to produce precise, clean code that is actually easy to read.

Version 1.0 has quite a few features that can make producing that next Web article, an enjoyable experience. Let's take a look.

Full Review.

Linux kernel developer Dmitry Monakhov arrested for protesting Ukraine invasion

Linux kernel developer Dmitry Monakhov was detained for 15 days for disobeying a police officer on Saturday. The debacle came about when Monakhov decided to protest the recent invasion into Ukraine by Russian armed forces. This was not the first incident of aggression towards Monakhov. During a rally in July of 2013 he was reported to have been beaten in one of the police vans most likely for participating in expressing his discontent with Putin’s policies regarding human rights. According to Monakhov’s tweet the day before his most recent run in with the authorities, he announced, “I am a Russian. Not cattle. Not a killer. And it is not the occupier. I am ashamed that my president Putin. At 9.00 I go to Manezhku [Manezh Square] against the war.” after this tweet, pictures surfaced a day later of four Russian policeman arresting him. Read more

Linux @ About.com

During the past month I have been in discussions with a number of people at about.com. I have been provided with the opportunity of writing articles on the linux.about.com subsite and I am in full control of all the content that will appear on that site. It is early days and there is some old content on the site which is a bit out of date but I plan to make linux.about.com a great resource for everyone. Read more
