NightWeaver: a trivial live HTML editor

Filed under: Random Thoughts — Dr. Lawlor @ 11:38 am

One of my fellow professors is teaching an introduction to HTML in his CS 101 course, and I felt like he could use a simpler interface for students to get their first taste of HTML web programming.  So I built this trivial two-column editor:

  http://lawlor.cs.uaf.edu/NightWeaver.html

Everything runs on the client side using a half dozen lines of quick and dirty javascript (basically just output.innerHTML = textarea.value).  It’s conceptually similar to my server-side C++ and assembly interface NetRun.  It’s called “NightWeaver” since I wrote it in one night, and is not related to Adobe Dreamweaver.
