Mozilla's Bespin project – an open source effort to build a web-based code editor – has been rechristened Skywriter, and its official repository has been moved to GitHub so that developers can more easily fork the project. As the project approaches its 1.0 release, Mozilla is also working to move its entire architecture to …
I don't quite understand
But I'm leery of Cloudy Stuff.
Re: I don't quite understand
it is web based - the programmers / developers use their browser to (group) edit the program source files.
I mean, seriously.... Why?
What's wrong with running 'your favourite text editor' locally?
SciTE is pretty good and available on every platform I use, if stuff like vi/emacs isn't quite your cup of tea. Very user friendly and very customisable (ok, it's not like emacs but hey it's a pretty damned good effort).
And like it or not, there are platform specific editors which may or may not be quite what you like, but they are there.
Hell I'd rather use the windows text editor whatever it's called or nano than to use any 'cloud' editor.
Moving from Mercurial to Git. Yeah, that really makes all the difference! NFT
It works - now what do I do with it?
Works with El Reg, replaces the browser's basic editor for entering text.
Kind-of wasted on plain text comments though.
Now, if there's a name that needs to reside somewhere in the Lucasverse, that name is definitely Dangoor!
Use the forks Luke?
Anyone else remember the old SGI system with that name?
good ideas and very wrong direction since the beginning
The idea of collaborative editing is a GREAT one, something that only the mac "subethaedit" application does properly till now.
Doing it "online" as long as you can run your own server could be a great plus.
But this project has been re-spined, re-defined and re-named too many times.
I predict a slow but sure fail.
A pity, I had my eye on this project for a while.
It's all in the eyes
yes you obvisouly
love to obfuscate your code have an awkward object model, and favor compact code over readable one, because, you know,. it is faster ;)
All the langages you cite are notorious for being unreadable, obfuscated, sometime verbose at the same time (jave with its inverted noun/verm model) and none of them has been created for what it is used. (Java was created at first for embedded development, C++ is the bastard child of a glorified macro processor called C, perl is well .. perl lol (there is more than one way to do it wrong, and an object model even larry criticize ), and PhP is the langage that must be shut down every invocation, was never conceived to be used as it is now, hence the growing pains (PHP 6 ? ) )
You are truly a curly brace developer. Through and through.
I am not.
I think I was aware of the planet Bespin, but when I first heard of the Mozilla project I pronounced it be-SPIN instead of bess-pin. duh.

Err ...... you might like to consider that it is indeed web based with program source files also using the browser to edit the programmers/developers in a SMART, Mutually Beneficial, Virtual Monitoring and Mentorship Project ...... Civil CloudBasedD CyberSpace Operation, which will invariably and inevitably have DODgy MODified Bot Networks Phishing and Pharming and Providing ESpecial IntelAIgent Security Services and FailSafeGuards.
It is though something, probably quite understandably so presently, which will not be publicly commented and/or elaborated upon, and to deny it whenever it is outed would be foolish and counterproductive in a field which does not countenance nor solicit either.
"Apparently, some people didn't like it."
Yeah, should have been called Stratos.

Then there's more exotic code wikis, such as ScraperWiki for collaboratively developing and maintaining screen scrapers http://scraperwiki.com/ (that uses CodeMirror though)
if it's related to the recent lawsuit by Lucas over jedi mind, a bit of pre-emption to avoid a similar suit.
