Software Update – Firefox 56.0 finally released!

Posted in Browser, Computer, Firefox, Open source with tags , , on October 1, 2017 by Sirusdark

Hello dear power users!

Firefox finally released their new version and I wanted to let you all know it indeed fixes the latest crash issues – closing Firefox would close the app, but its process (firefox.exe) would keep running in background until it crashed.

This new version released 3 days ago (September 28th 2017) and since I only got back from travelling yesterday, well, let’s just say I’m not the first telling the world about it. :D

Enjoy!

Sirus

 

Did-you-know?
Firefox’s latest installer now installs automatically in 64 bit. If you happen to install it alongside an existing 32 bit Firefox installation, you can safely proceed to uninstall it – your personal data and profiles stay untouched!

Free Online WYSIWYG HTML editors

[ This post has a FREE BONUS ]

Hello fellow following readers!

I apologies for the delay (3 weeks). I had some finish posts, but after reviewing them, I decided to flush ’em instead of sticking to the schedule to post crap.

Now, let’s get back to useful stuff!

You may have noticed that many online forms, chats, forums or comment forms often offers text editing tools right from your browser to help embellish/edit your text. If you ever wondered where to find the resources to implement these tools in your own pages/websites, search no more! :D

Here is a listing of online text-editors tools I’ve been compiling for some time now, along with live working example. They are listed by tool’s “engine”:

CKEditor Engine (www.ckeditor.com)

http://htmleditor.in

http://bestonlinehtmleditor.com/

http://www.quackit.com/html/online-html-editor/

(DEAD LINK – Left it for reference purposes)

TinyMCE Engine (www.tinymce.com)

Other engines/not 100% sure

http://online-html-editor.org/

http://www.htmlinstant.com/

http://www.timsfreestuff.com/HTMLEditor/

AmyEditor (www.amyeditor.com)

When I first began collecting the resources you see here, AmyEditor was live. Unfortunately, today the website is down and I haven’t been able to track down the source code (yet)… If you ever happen to find it, please send me a copy or link!

I hope you’ve found these resources useful for your next project! Follow/send me comments if you ever feel like it!

How to save and download JSFiddle code

Posted in Browser, Coding, Open source, Tweaking with tags , , , on April 10, 2014 by Sirusdark

JSFiddle Logo

JSFiddle is AWESOME to test any code or when you simply need to iterate quickly some code. But there’s no way to simply save everything all together at once. Here’s a hack to do just that!

Simply add “embedded/” orembedded/result/” at the end of your JSFiddle URL! You can then save the whole page as an MHT or HTML file + the external libraries (if any)!

Hack it, grab it

1. Add embedded/result/ at the end of the JSFiddle URL you wanna grab.

2. Show the frame or the frame’s source code: right-click anywhere in the page and view the frame in a new tab or the source  right-away (requires Firefox).

3. Finally, save the page in your preferred format (MHT, HTML, TXT, etc.) and voilà!

4. Don’t forget to save any external libraries that you may have called.

“embedded/” or “embedded/result/” ?

Here’s an example of a JSFiddle code I created: http://jsfiddle.net/R3C6p/

As you  can see, you can’t view it as a single HTML page. Now, check it out with the modified URL: http://jsfiddle.net/R3C6p/embedded/ and http://jsfiddle.net/R3C6p/embedded/result/. Notice that the embedded version allows you to switch each sections, while the result version only shows your code’s result. That’s the one you’ll need to open the frame to grab the source code (Ctrl+U).

That’s it!

FREE BONUS! Shattered Planet Logo

Available on iOS now!

I’ve personally playtested that game: it’s fun!

Enjoy!
