  • November 26, 2011

PressBooks.comNo sooner had a service like Pandamian been released (we originally reviewed it here) than a competitor had to come along. And a powerful competitor at that, it must be said. PressBooks lets you have books outputted in all the formats that are used more often today. These include PDF, ePub, HTML and XML. The site lets you author a book in any of these formats, for free, and then have it both shared and/or printed.

When signing up for a account you’ll be getting your own, personalized URL, and you’ll be able to tag all that you post there as either public or private. It’s all up to you, you can let every person who visits the site read what you’re working on, or keep thing between yourself and your closest friends. Or even your publisher. Connecting writers with their publishing agents… a service like PressBooks could lend itself greatly to such a use.

And since PressBooks is powered by WordPress, you can invite all the people you collaborate with and work on your own stories as if you all were sitting around the same table. You’ll be able to correct what they’re writing, and they’ll be able to do the same for you until you’ve all arrived at the definitive version of any text you’ve got to get ready.

More – Validate Email HTML

  • June 27, 2011

GetFractal.comWith so many email clients around, it is almost impossible for designers to check the readability of what they are sending in every conceivable context. There are no less than 24 emails clients that are currently in use. Most designers check compatibility with the three or four they know most people resort to, and then keep their fingers crossed as far as the rest is concerned. How come there is not an application to have everything compared side by side?

Well, it turns out that there is a service that makes exactly for that. It has just launched, and that goes into explaining its still-relative obscurity. Named Fractal, it basically enables email designers to test the messages they are going to send and see if anything is not where it should. Fractal can take care of validating both HTML and CSS, and ensure that there are no clashes of any kind when the email is finally put its way.

This is done in as easy a way as cutting and pasting the HTML to be verified into a box. The results will be instantly displayed, without fees of any kind having to be paid, or sensible information having to be disclosed.

More – Convert HTML To Excel

  • January 24, 2011

DocRaptor.comAs the title of the review puts it, DocRaptor offers a solution for converting documents from HTML to Excel. This is accomplished in a really easy way, as all coding is dispensed with and all you have to do is make a HTTP post to the server of the company for the whole process to be dealt with. You can choose to have both PDF and XLS documents generated, and these files will be retrievable the moment the conversion itself is over.

This is really advantageous in the sense that (by any other means) a conversion of this nature would involve dealing with new libraries and compatibility layers that are bound to get in your nerves within minutes. Compare that with the ease in which HTML code can be written, and then you will realize why DocRaptor is an interesting platform.

Four plans are already available: Basic, Professional, Premium and Max. The main difference lies in the maximum number of documents that you can have converted each month.

More – Encode & Decode HTML Entities

  • January 23, 2011

HTMLENT.comHTML/ENT is a free HTML entities encoder/decoder. As any programmer could tell you, when coding HTML one has to face the hard-to-solve problem of characters that are reserved and which you are not allowed to use at all. And there is also the problem that arises when you need to use characters or marks that exist only in some languages. When that happens, your only option is to look for an equivalent using your favorite search engine, or to use an application like this one.

HTML/ENT will let you input the characters that are giving you a headache, and have them turned into something usable right off the bat. As a matter of fact, this application can actually deal with large chunks of text. The process is the same in every case – you paste the text to be made HTML-friendly, and then you will have it translated by merely hitting the button that reads Encode/Decode.

Without a shadow of a doubt, a site that programmers are going to add to their collections of bookmarks willingly.

CodingPeople.comAre you really good when it comes to designing and plotting, but your programming skills are all but inexistent? Can you come up with some terrific ideas for websites, but are you unable to make them come true? Well, this is the site that will put a full stop to that, and let all the sites in your mind take a tangible shape once and for all.

Coding People will let you submit any design you have dreamed up, and have it turned into a fully-featured xhtml website by expert developers. The actual submission takes the form of a .PNG or .PSD file, and the conversion process usually takes 24 hours (it might also take less time – it depends on what has been submitted, its number of subpages and on the functionalities that are to be implemented).

And according to your optimization needs, you can go for either the premium or high-end packages that are provided. In any case, you can change lots of HTML, CSS and layout options manually until you have come up with something that suits your requirements (and budget) 100 %.

More – An Easy Way To Build HTML Forms

  • January 2, 2011

HTMLForm.comForms are an integral part of any site, for the simple reason that they make collecting data from visitors a much easier task. And only when collecting data from visitors can the webmaster learn exactly which kind of content to feature, and how frequently.

And HTML Form is a free application that makes such a process notably faster and cleaner. Using it, anybody can design a HTML form and receive a .ZIP file that can then be installed on his website. Such a thing can be done without having to reprogram or reconfigure anything. The form will be embedded in a mere couple of steps, without you needing to worry about how to integrate it with your existing database or anything like that.

And each and every form that you build and install comes with automatic notifications. You can be informed whenever a new record is entered via email, and deal with the information that a new visitor has provided right away. Plus, a centralized dashboard will let you see all the records that have been created from day one.

  • September 10, 2010

elRTE.orgelRTE is an open source HTML editor that aims to simplify the work of bloggers and webmasters. It will let them get the format they need in a timely way, without having to run into unnecessary problems.

Those who use it can manage most visual elements of HTML including (but not limited to) images, lists and tables within any text that they are editing.

For those of you who care (and I am sure that if you are reading this review many of you do) elRTE has been written in Javascript using jQuery UI. And the one requirement for running it is having a modern browser. Firefox 3.5+, Internet Explorer 7 & 8, Safari 4, Opera 10 and Chrome have all been tested and are supported to the same extent.

The latest version on elRTE can be downloaded on the site. We are talking about a really lightweight application, but in case you are averse to installing new software on your computer you will be glad to know that a demo is provided. It will let you learn more about the core functions of elRTE, and the main advantages that it has got.

More – Building Up Project Frameworks

  • June 21, 2010

InstantBlueprint.comA resource like this one will be of interest to you only if you are a programmer. In essence, it is a platform for creating project frameworks with valid HTML/XHTML and CSS in a simple (yet fully functional) way.

The process involves nothing more than picking a name for the project, choosing the document type from different HTML and XHTML configurations along with the relevant JavaScript library and the index extension (either “.html” or”.php”). In final place, you are requested to enter the markup ID tags that are to be employed, one at a time.

By complying with these steps (something that shouldn’t take a mildly competent programmer more than a couple of minutes) the project framework will be up and ready for you to put it through its paces. And I think you have already guessed that much, but this site can be used at no cost whatsoever. No premium services are provided, either – it is all usable by everybody, from the very beginning.

More – Turning HTMLs Into PDFs With Ease

  • June 14, 2010

PDFCrowd.comA service that is currently available in beta (but that seemed fully stable and functional to me when I tried it), PDF Crowd will let you take any web page and have it turned into a PDF that you can proceed to share with whomever you want.

For people wanting to preserve the front page of any publication (either because they were featured there, or because someone they care about graced it), this is a precious service bar none.

It beats capturing everything on your own hands down – that process is not only tedious, it can actually be rendered useless when any of the files that went with the saved HTML goes missing (which is not that rare, believe me).

As a service, PDF Crowd comes at no cost. And if you fancy yourself as a bit of a programmer and think that you could do better, then you would be delighted to know that an API is featured for you to have your way. If you do, make a point of checking the provided forums, too – maybe you will find the advice of someone who has been at it for longer than you there.

  • February 1, 2010

HTML-PDF-Convert.comWe all have a story or two to tell about how we found a great site and wanted to save some portions for reading them at a later date, and when we opened them up we found that the file we had kept all along resembled a scene from “”The Towering Inferno” in terms of accessibility. That is why it is good to have tools like this one close at hand.

Its actual purpose is made completely explicit by its name. You take a URL, paste it in the provided box and then a PDF will be generated for you to save it for a rainy day.

Such a tool has plenty of other uses, obviously. For instance, you can count on it on order to share content found on any page, and share it the exact way that you could see it. Sites change by the minute, and the likelihood of you sending a link that becomes obsolete is huge. Besides, if your site is featured somewhere you might like to capture that moment for posterity. HTML to PDF Convert will let you take care of that.

  • December 18, 2009

SquadEdit.comSquad is a tool that will appeal to programmers only. In the most general terms available, it makes it possible to edit code in real time.

All that it takes to get going is a web-enabled computer and creating an account beforehand. Multiple languages are already supported, and that includes HTML, CSS, Javascipt and PHP among several others. Squad can be employed both as a HTML or a PHP editor, and also as a plain text editor if you want to.

The system can be tried for free to begin with, and two paid accounts are available, the difference stemming from the number of featured users and options like being able to open and save local files as well as having an ad-free environment to work with. Also, note that multiple users are only supported by the most expensive plan from the ones on offer, which goes by the apt name of “Team”. In each and every case, the first month comes at no cost.

As far as supported OSs and browsers are concerned, these include Firefox, Safari and IE if you are a PC user. Chrome is likewise supported by way of a plugin that is provided. And Linux and Mac users can run it as long as they have either Firefox or Chrome.

More – Technology Videos On The Net

  • September 9, 2009

TechVideoBytes.comIf you are looking for a daily dose of technology videos, you could do a lot worse than checking this portal out. It is a sort of haven for adepts to videos covering the most recent technological developments the world over.

There are a host of categories to choose from including “Plugins”, “Widgets”, “Programming” and “Storage”. These can (sort of) be enjoyed by the general public, but there are others like “Framework”, “Ajax”, “Flash” and “Scriptaculous” that are solely meant for connoisseurs. In any case, when the visitor wants to loosen up his mind a little he can check out the “Games” and “Fun” categories and chill out.

As you can imagine, the most popular content is highlighted on the main page, and it is always possible to visualize it by hour, day, week and month. And related channels can always be accessed in a direct fashion.

Personally, I found TechVideoBytes a very well-balanced site. They have managed to keep it interesting enough for newcomers, and sufficiently engaging for seasoned users. All it takes is a paucity of time looking up the right videos, and I can assure you that your eyes will not stray from the screen.
