Hi.
I have improved the syntax-coloring (I think) and included it in this app.
It requires MIOreader (downloaded from http://www.visicommedia.com - a 445kb plugin) and is 178kb. http://www.naltabyte.se/space/apps/liquid.mio
I'm curious about what you guys think...

I mean it's a continuation of the previous attempt at this, found at http://www.naltabyte.se/colorsync.htm
That was a rather crude dhtml-solution.
The new one recognizes different tags and also handles large amounts of code being pasted/cut.
So, I just wanted some input..

See the older thread here:
www.ozoneasylum.com/Forum2/HTML/002245.html

amikael: The problem is that people have to download another plugin (if they can find it - I had a look around and couldn't spot it) and I can't see people bothering.

Oh, that makes a bit more sense.

The old one didn't work in Mozilla. The new one doesn't work without a plugin. Bah.

Ah, but the plugin runs in both Mozilla, Opera and Netscape..using the same script-engine in all browsers.
It's basically a browser with it's own interface for scripting and html/xml.
This 'crossbrowser'-capability - combined with the fact that it packs several files into one executable - is what I find attractive with MIO.
If you want the plugin, just click on <liquid 2.0> at http://www.naltabyte.se/liquid
and it's being offered, or visit the MIO-section at visicommedia.com.
(not the MIOfactory-section..there's two of them..)
Anyway, here's an exe running on all windows 98 and higher, in case anyone does care to bother.. http://www.naltabyte.se/space/apps/liquid.exe
Warning::
It uses Windows Scripting Host to access the filesystem, and with some virus-programs, that triggers a warning, since some viruses sometimes uses that interface.

I don't see much point in making something cross-browser if it's not cross-platform. Honestly, who has windows but doesn't have IE?

It's still a very nice idea, but if I were to ever use something like this it'd be because I wanted to quickly edit a html document from a different computer than my home one, which would most likely be a Mac.

If your going to use a plugin for something, I suggest you fine a cross-platform and popular plugin, like shockwave or flash.

But it also runs as an *.exe on the desktop, and can access the filesystem as such with all rights, and MIO's can also have polyshaped windows, instead of plain square ones, like the skinned media player.
And, in MIO 2.01, there's a function called mio.booster() that tripples the speed of Javascript-performances across the board.
- It makes an amazing difference.
To top it off, MIO's packs all files used in the application as one single downloadable executable, so it's deployed as one file and run as one file too.
The list just goes on...

That's great, but if it was flash, I wouldn't have to download anything before I could see it.

It all depends on what you want to do with this of course. Just don't expect people to download plugins just to see your work, because thet hardly ever will. If this project is just for fun or if you want to deploy it over a controlled intranet then sure, go for it. However, if you seriously plan on other people using this over the web, relying on obscure plugins is a bad idea, no matter how cool, robust or technically superior the plugin is if it doesn't have market penetration you may as well be programming apps for the c64 for all the use it'll see.

Not a controlled intranet, but as a desktop software.
The booster is powerful enough to allow for some pretty amazing appliactions done as javascripts only.
