This is still very alpha experiment
Skyedit is an editor embedded in browser. Some browsers support
type URIs for viewing page source (Try clicking
view-source:http://google.com in Firefox or
Chrome). In a same way you could view source for a files in the local hard drive
view-source:file:///etc/hosts. Would not be it
nice to have similar way to edit those files ? Would not be it awesome to have
an edit link
on a gist page along with embed to start
editing it an editor, or just being able to navigate to
edit:file:///etc/hosts to edit it ? This is an
experiment using jetpack and ace with an attempt to do exactly that and
probably more in a future.
git clone git://github.com/Gozala/sky-edit.git --recursive cd sky-edit
Download latest .xpi file from downloads and drag it to firefox.
