Codafy 1.0 - RapidWeaver Plugin Enables Native Firebug Functionality

in Web Design (E)

[] Raleigh, North Carolina - NimbleHost today is pleased to announce Codafy 1.0, the first plugin for RapidWeaver to add native "Firebug" functionality to the popular Mac OS X website design application. The free Codafy RapidWeaver plugin enables web designers to easily see how the underlying HTML, CSS, and Javascript code of their website relates to the actual design, improving workflow and reducing development time.

Web designers everywhere have long relied on tools like the free Firebug plugin for Firefox, as it enables content creators to more easily understand how to make customizations and changes to their websites, as well as simplify the search for any bugs and errors in the underlying code.

For RapidWeaver users utilizing this Firebug/Firefox combination, the process of constantly switching between two applications quickly becomes a time consuming process. Codafy was specifically developed to enable the open source WebKit Web Inspector so that it can be accessed directly in RapidWeaver, thus removing the need to repeatedly refer to two separate applications.

* Enables the open source WebKit Web Inspector for direct access within RapidWeaver
* Split-panel view allows users to see the underlying code and preview their website at the same time
* Edit, enable, and disable CSS styles while previewing
* Error console helps pinpoint the source of any problems

Integrated with Codafy is the javascript-based XRAY Inspector, which can also be used with the RapidWeaver plugin Stacks via the included XRAY Inspector stack.

"Codafy helps simplify and streamline the process of creating great looking websites with RapidWeaver," stated company CEO Jonathan Head. "It has already become a critical part of our own workflow, and is a major addition to our product line of Plug-ins, Themes, and Mobile Themes."

NimbleHost provides extensive documentation and user support for Codafy and all their other products, including User Forums, FAQs, Knowledge Libraries, Guides to RapidWeaver, User Product Guides, and Technical Support.
