Here is the PND:,0,0,0,115,352

Have fun!

Please move to Betatesting.
you are on a serious roll, man! is rolling out a PND file really that freaking simple (for small things)??? was thinking about requesting Blue Griffon (similar to Kompozer) but wanna actually play with it before I request it, since I JUST found out about it...
It's a bit of work, but it you have a working devsetup it's easy and fast to recompile and package, thanks to Sebt3 and his wonderful toolchain.
Oh, thats fine, porting is almost fun for Pandora ;)
This is exactly what I need.

I've been using mousepad for so long it's became just my normal way of working but this looks brilliant.

Thank you mcobit for the port and CPU for suggesting it :D

*edit* original said 'This is like exactly what I need' :blush:
Glad to have suggested it... the first thing that came to mind was having a way to make mobile web pages ON a mobile device... with Fennec and a couple other mobile browsers right on hand, you can build your mobile site and test it immediately on the same device! :D so, there you go, and I hope people test it till the text falls out of it! :D
Updated to 2.0.3. Same url (when ED approves the upload).
One of the best apps on pandora just stopped working for me and I don't know what to do.

It starts and then closes again. In the out-file I read about this

There seems to be some file missing.
Try to backup your appdatafolder, the delete it and run again. Maybe something got messed up there.
If that doesn't help, try downloading from the repo again.
