Macluddite's Recent Posts
I have downloaded and tried to use espresso as a replacement for CSSEdit every couple months since it first started shipping. I tried again tonight. The idea that this includes CSSEdit 3 is just not realistic. The CSS editor interface is worse, the selection of (for lack of a better description) GUI tools certainly isn't expanded to any degree. Where are the CSS3 properties? Clicking on styles in the inspector only occasionally takes you to the corresponding code in the CSS file now. I really want this software to work. I used CSSEdit religiously as part of my workflow for a long time, but it's getting very long in the tooth. It seems to me that the CSS editor is the one part of espresso that should really be polished. CSSEdit was brilliant, people loved using it, and as a tool it worked exceptionally well. I am crestfallen by the thought that the CSS editor in espresso may never be an adequate replacement. I've liked macrabbit's style and the previous software they have produced. As much as it pains me, at this point I'm willing to move on. Here's hoping they pull a rabbit out of a hat, or someone else makes a usable CSSEditor soon.
Apparently CSSEdit has been discontinued. At least thats what this looks like to me: "Because future versions of CSSEdit will be integrated into Espresso exclusively, CSSEdit 2 is no longer offered for sale separately. It will no longer be updated as a standalone product, but we will continue to offer email support for it." http://macrabbit.com/espresso/2/ I'm pretty bummed myself, and not sure what they are thinking.
