suggestion: external editor 6 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0
hello carty,

here another quick suggestion:

could you make it, that one can open the post in an external editor?

i think of a configured program, like notepad.

the format could be

.. text ..

or even

.. title ..
.. tags ..
.. text ..

if the user chooses to save it (and hence, the modification date is changed), the modified 'article' is imported again with the appr. field mapping.

with this, one could use its favourite editor on the fly. like
- click external, have the whole thing, to
- edit it. then
- exit editor saving the mod and .. BAM .. updated.

ideally with the configuration of the program, one could choose,
- if the external program takes (and gives) the raw html or
- if it just takes and gives the text (i.e. no formatting).

with a text only editor, i could think of a option to do simple text to html conversion on import, like
- text lines become line in html or
- text paragraphs are interpreted.

i do not think this import has to be very sophisticated. one has the internal editor to apply style. (or could choose an external html editor to change)

regards,
thomas.

Thomas, can you tell me the reason for this feature?

Actually you can directly type articles on notepad (txt) files and import them into the software. Editing again on a separate window, won't it take a couple of extra steps or so?

hi carty,

this is more for editing foreign content.

for example we could import via feed or from supported content providers.

then, we might want to edit the contents. i think, i could come in handy, if this could be done with and external editor easily. just because this editor could be the preferred one or one that has some additional functions...

regards,
thomas.

I still don't understand. Import via feed?

Editor with additional functions like spinner?

Actually you found the solution of finding the txt files in data folder which should be sufficient?

hi,

import via feed is example to import of foreign data i.e. via rss.
as the content is not created by myself a major rework should be done.
this requires some good editor support.

the direct manipulation of the text files is sufficient and nice for mass modificatons. i do not feel it is the right way to modify on a day to day basis.

and yes, my editor can process content via server requests and would be able to issue my spinner to create a variant. but this would also need some major edits, i.e. spinning syntax (which i currently have to do by hand)

if this would be the case, abs is only needed to import data .. i have tools for this .. and to push it to wordpress, i created a plugin for this.

regards,
thomas.

The software does import articles via RSS! You havent seen this feature yet?

You want to right click on every article and select "Edit externally"?
