rails sano

For those that never used Ruby on Rails, basically you run:

rails <projectname>

and you have a complete runnable Rails project with lot’s of placeholders so that you don’t have to worry about where to put stuff and making sure things work well together. Just after doing

rails sano

I went and run the testing server and here I am:

sano-001

That’s my development browser. Normally I use Safari or Chrome, but for development I use Firefox equipped with two important plug ins. The most important one is Firebug. The other one is Web Developer. If you are into web programming at all, you should check them out.

It's time for search and replace

searchWeb browsers, like Firefox or Chrome, are no longer document viewers, but application platforms. I’d like to see browsers start to implement search and replace. Of course not modifying the page, just replacing the matching strings in forms.

I’m really surprised it’s not implemented yet. In the last two weeks I needed this feature about 5 times. It’s time for search and replace in web browsers already.
