Scripting News: It’s an outliner!

On Monday of this week, somewhat quietly, we released the docs for the outliner we’ve been developing at Small Picture, Inc.

http://smallpicture.com/outlinerHowto.html

The docs are interesting, if you like outliners — but also interesting because they illustrate something important about the outliner. It’s very easy to include in a web page.

There’s a practice outliner right there on the docs page. Kind of subtle. šŸ˜‰

It’s written in JavaScript. Yet it’s indistinguishable from the outliners we’ve been using, for many years, running native on Windows and Mac. This outliner runs in any HTML-5 compatible browser, on any OS.

You install the software by reloading the page.

Next Monday we’ll show the next bit in our queue. And the Monday after that, the next one, etc.

Our cup runneth over! (Finally.)
