For those who have yet to read it, The Icon Bar – a site that once upon a time saw regular news and features posted to it, and seems to be starting to do so again – has this weekend published an interview with Jeffrey Lee.

Jeffrey, as every RISC OS user should know, puts a remarkable amount of effort into the operating system, and has been heavily involved in bringing it to some of the newer platforms we now enjoy. Not entirely surprisingly, therefore, he has also won Best Overall Contributor in the RISC OS Awards for the last two years running.

Web gallery app upped and upped again

Back around the time of the 2012 London Show, Dave Stratford released an update to his website/gallery generator, WebGen2,  bringing it up to version 2.48, and a couple of weeks later he released another update to bring the application up to version 2.49.

When presented with a folder of images, the software can produce either a single index page containing thumbnails of all the images, an index page of the thumbnails with a link to pages containing the full size images, or a Javascript based page containing the thumbnails, and which will display the full images when the mouse pointer is moved over one of them.

That’s FS, not FFS, FFS!

SiteMatch is a website management tool for automating the process of uploading new and changed files in a website. It does this by analysing the local copy and comparing information about the files contained within to the information stored the last time it carried out this process. Files it doesn’t recognise, or whose attributes have changed, can be uploaded to the remote server and the relevant data stored for comparison the next time.

The software was originally written by Dave Edwards, and is now maintained by Richard Porter who has announced the release of version 2.44, a beta version. For those looking for a “stable” release, version 2.43 is also available, which is unchanged from the beta version 2.42f. Continue reading »

Gallery generation in a jiffy!

Webgen2 is a piece of software written by Dave Stratford to generate a website or image gallery when fed a folder of images, such as JPEGs taken from a digital camera. Featuring a comprehensive set of options for the design of the pages it creates, the application can produce three basic types of site:

  1. A single index page containing only thumbnails of the images
  2. A single index page containing thumbnails, each linking to a separate page containing the larger version of the respective images.
  3. A Javascript based page displaying the thumbnails, which displays the larger versions of each image whenever the mouse pointer is moved over the thumbnail. Continue reading »

Well, maybe a little gentle persuasion

SiteMatch is a website management tool that designed to automate the process of uploading new and changed files in a website, by analysing the local copy and comparing information about the files within to the information stored the last time it carried out this process. Any files it doesn’t recognise, or whose attributes have changed, can be uploaded (using FTPc v1.29 or higher) to the remote server, with the new information about what’s what stored for comparison the next time. The software can also copy new and changed files to another location on your local network, which makes it useful as a simple backup tool. Continue reading »

Both beta, but one beta a bit better than the other beta.
