Command Line In Web Apps


Mozilla is releasing a command line library for use in web-apps. 


O'Reilly Early Release

I didn't know about the O'Reilly Early Release program. Basically, it seems you can buy a book as it's still being written, and give feedback while receiving updates and rewrites.

Nice idea. I'm tempted to buy some of these.

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.
