Testing Performancing



Update: the automatic Technorati tags didn’t work. I’ll have to look into that some more…

performancing blog editorI am testing out Performancing, which just released a blog editor / firefox extension (found through Steven Cohen over at Library Stuff). It’s pretty cool! Take a look at it in the first image – that’s me starting this blog post.

As you can see, it’s got a WYSIWYG interface, with all the usual bold, italic, underlined, and add links goodness. It also has the ability to mess with the HTML code (which I just did to make the image on the left align left and have no icky border).

But the coolest thing (also seen in the first image) is the split screen, RIGHT ON THE FIREFOX BROWSER. How neat is that?

performancingOK – so you think it’s cool too, and want to post using it. What do you do? Take a look at this next image – there are a number of different ways to open it up (and I’m still just experimenting). You can toggle the split screen on and off using the F8 key; if you right-click, you’ll see Performancing on the menu (circled in the image to the right); or you can click the little notepad-and-pencil icon in the bottom right-hand cormer of the Firefox window (also circled). Wow!

Even cooler – and I don’t know if this is going to really work yet or not – is the ability to automatically add Technorati tags to my blog posts. Yep, that’s what the Performancing folks claim… so we’ll see once I hit the Publish button.

So here goes – I’m going to publish this little gem right now…

    I am also testing it. I really like it even though there are still bugs in it. Clicking on “View this Blog” next to the “Publish to” button results in stange error messages from Blogger. It looks liek it tries to send an https based address.

    I just tried that – it opened my Blogger blog’s atom feed… that’s odd.

    Hi Dave. Very nice blog here. Lot’s of good information. I’m getting ready to check out the Performancing tool myself – thanks for the warnings about bugs you’ve found. Re technorati tags – There is a bookmarklet I use that inserts them into any editor – you can find it on Marshall Kirkpatick’s blog at http://marshallk.com – you can search his blog for it.
