Tips

Darren:

  • Notepad++. Notepad they way it should have been. One of the first things I install on a new machine. Excellent light weight editor.

Mike:

  • In the grand tradition of developers stealing borrowing from one other, I saw this site mentioned within a Planet Lotus blog post from Mark Roden: http://jsbeautifier.org/. It makes JavaScript code more readable by adding indents and line breaks.

Stuart:

  • Chrome with IBM Connections Files issue workaround. Great job, Sjaak!
