Last week (Oct. 22-23), a handful of us from Ephox headed over to the HTML5 Conference that was hosted in our backyard (San Francisco, that is).
Our goals were simple.
We exhibited. We sponsored. We demo’d. And we got great feedback on Ephox’s new Web content editing tool, Textbox.io.
(Oh yeah, and we gave out a bunch of great-quality T-shirts for anyone and everyone willing to beta test Textbox.io.)
Just what is Textbox.io? And how does it affect the HTML5 developer community?
Well, we may be biased. But, we think Textbox is the next great thing for visually editing web content. And it easily integrates directly into your custom application, your Gmail, your WordPress, your Atmail, your whatever-you-can-get-your-hands-on.
We think it’s a match made in the Blogosphere. And we want you to see for yourself with a free beta test.
Still not convinced?
Here are eight ways you can make mighty powerful visually appealing content for the Web:
- Create Eye-catching Link & Media Embeds
Catch your readers’ attention with link previews. oEmbed hyperlinks are converted automatically into eye-catching previews, helping you get your point across faster.
- Markdown Formatting
Format like a pro. Markdown syntax lets you format text without leaving the keyboard.
- Zero-effort Integration
- Emote More
Get your point across, tell a story or just be silly with over 800 emoji.
- Re-use Content Snippets
Don’t waste a keystroke. Add text snippets anywhere with short codes that auto-expand with just a few keystrokes.
- Autocorrect Typos
Avoid embarrassment. Let Textbox.io fix your spelling mistakes as you type.
- Resize Images
No extra tools required. Click and drag to tweak added images to just the right size.
- Expand to Full Screen
Keep it easy on the eyes. Cut out distractions and focus your attention with a minimalist, full-screen mode.
Ok. Now are you interested? If so, please go to textbox.io and sign up for the FREE beta test. Install it, then tell us what you think.
