Hello folks, just wanted to share with you all…we now have over 25,000 registered users world-wide. Our users include professionals, freelancers, developers, designers, top universities and schools! Thank you all!
We now support auto-save in browser. What this means is that, every 5 secs, Liveweave will save a copy of the current weave you are working on (and settings like theme and panel layout), in your browser’s local storage. So, the next time you visit Liveweave again, you will automatically come back to exactly where you left off the previous day. Great, right?
What this also means is that if you accidentally close the browser or if your computer suddenly “hangs up“, there is a high chance your work is not lost! However, if you want to store and access the same weave from a different computer or a different browser, you will have to save it to the cloud or download the weave.
Note: You can only have one browser session active in order to use this feature. If you have multiple sessions of Liveweave running at the same time, the application will save the content of the last browser session you close.
Feel feel to email us if you have any questions.
Liveweave now feature a CSS3 Code Generator! While CSS3 has been around a while, it is still hard to remember all the CSS3 tags. So after much thought, we decided to introduce a CSS3 Generator to make a designer’s/developer’s life easier. You can now experiment with CSS3 gradients, text shadows, box shadows, transforms, rotate, skews, border radius and a whole lot more!
Think the CSS3 Code Generator as a lab. You can change several CSS3 parameters in real-time using just sliders, drop-downs and buttons. Once you are done, just click the “copy” icon to the right to copy your code. Click the “Back to Editor” (on top-right) to go back to the editor mode and paste the CSS code into your class or id. That’s it!
To use this feature, go to:
1. Tools menu > Generate CSS code using CSS3 Code Generator
2. Click the gear icon as show below.
So here’s your chance to write (and share) a fully validated CSS code. And again, everything is in real-time, so no need to click a Validate button. The warnings and errors will show up in the code/panel gutter while you write your CSS.
We have recently introduced a new feature, Team Up, a collaborative real-time programming and editing service! With the help of Mozilla’s TogetherJS integration, you can now use Liveweave to remotely teach, share, review and help other programmers and designers…completely in real-time!
Not only can you do screen sharing, you can chat with your fellow team mates as well. Team Up currently supports Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera, but not IE.
Update (06/21/2014): We have temporarily disabled the “Save” shortcut feature because of some server-side issues. In the meantime, please click the “Save” button in order to save your weaves.
We have finally introduced keyboard shortcuts, a feature that has been long time coming!
We will continue expanding the keyboard shortcuts to make Liveweave feel more like a traditional desktop-based source code editor.
We originally had the option to switch between themes using a toggle, but had to take it down when several users complained about scroll bars acting weirdly. In addition to that, there were several other bugs associated with it. Now, we have finally brought back the “Night Vision” toggle, so that users can enjoy both the worlds!
In addition to that, Liveweave can now save the state of the theme and the layouts. What that means is that, if you save a weave with a specific layout and your theme of choice, say the ‘light theme’, the next time you access the weave, you will see the same layout and theme with which you originally saved it.
We have recently introduced a new horizontal ruler! The purpose for the ruler is mostly to help you create and test responsive designs, although it can also be used for various other features as well. You can easily change the size of the preview area and see how your weave renders accordingly.
The best part? The ruler size supports up to a 4K resolution (i.e. 3840 px horizontally)! Yep, that’s right. You can make use of the ruler even if you are building something for a 4k monitor.
Here’s the list of layouts you can choose from:
Layout 2 (Default)
The best part…the layouts are persistent in nature! What that means is that if you save a weave in a particular layout, the next time you load it, it will retain the same layout. However, the sizes of individual panels are not saved.
We hope you will like this!
