Netscape/Unix combo gets "Edit this page"

by Edd Dumbill -- 2000/12/19

Gerald Oskoboiny has created a way of browser initiated editing with Netscape/Unix designed to interoperate with vi and CVS.

Gerald writes:

I made a bookmarklet that adds an "Edit this page" button to my browser toolbar. When clicked, it causes Netscape to spawn an xterm with vi on the current document, then does a cvs commit afterwards. (and the cvs commit causes the file to be automatically checked out on my remote web site)

Check out how it works and try it for yourself at Gerald's site.
