A burst of development energy in a number of directions recently. And things are starting to self-organize towards the new ecosystem. Today’s exciting news : OWL makes a very nice desktop app, thanks to Electron. Here’s the github repo. I’ll be doing more testing, compiling, packaging this shortly. So that even non-geeks can play with […]
OK. At this point I’m now officially confused by the Dave Winer road-map / strategy. I’m sure it’s evolving and exploratory. But Dave’s productivity means that I’m no longer keeping up with how this is meant to go down. So we had an outliner. (Fargo). And then an open-sourced version of the editor (Yay! Concord). […]
Good news. The latest version of BTSync actually lets me specify which folder on my Android tablet I want to sync. That means I can explicitly tell it to sync. the OWL directory that OWLdroid uses by default. (Somewhere between updates of Android and BTSync last year, this facility got lost.) So it’s looking like […]

Of course, I’d like to write essays using an outliner. And I’m using OWL which is really just the Concord editor that […]
How is OWL looking these days? Here are a couple of screenshots : OWLdroid Note that I’ve moved the navbar of OWL into the space which Bootstrap usually uses for the main menu. This is a big win in terms of space, and the fact that it’s now always visible, even when scrolling down long […]
OWL now has a simple Python server that saves OPML files to your local machine. More here.
Concord is Fargo open-sourced. Dave is, of course, awesome.
This is really good news. Dave Winer finally comes out with a decent outliner in the browser. I’ve been looking for one for a long time. (Thought of trying to write it too, but it’s not my speciality. Now you get one from the world’s biggest Outlining evangelist.) This is also great news for Winer […]
Using a MindMap to store documentation. Actually it sounds like Freemind is much like an outliner, in that you can drive it with the keyboard and collapse / expand etc. I wonder how using this compares to LEO. (Hat-tip Other Michael)
