December 22, 2012 - The Maker on it's way to the Mac App Store...
The Maker has been actively developed and improved since 2006. Actually it has been in existence much longer than that. In all those years it has improved in so many ways. It got easier to use, faster and much more powerful.
Time to take it one step further...
October 15, 2011 - the maker 1.5 - Lots of new features!
Some of the interesting new features:
Support for linked (external) projects, they can be on a USB stick, webDAV or in your Dropbox (if mounted to your file system)
Session data saved, this means, files that are open when the maker is closed will be reopened at the next start of the maker
(UI settings are saved at the end of the session for window sizes and pane positions)
Find / replace in current file and across project.
Improved code style.
Run Python scripts from within the maker with an interactive shell.
Export project as template.
Add any file.
Use Markdown in maker parts (.content, .foot, .body, .nav)
Other improvements, performance tweeks and bug fixes.
We hope you have a pleasant experience using the maker. If you have any feedback
