I can't compare EW with iWeb (never used iWeb) but I can say without reservation that EW is an excellent web authoring app with many built-in tools. The EW community is active and lively on the forums, and devs such as "mcmanus" are offering fantastic templates and widgets for this app.
With a2012 Mac Mini maxxed out at 16GB SDRAM, I find that I can't get away with a RAM drive any larger than 4GB, otherwise the file system starts creating huge swap files, which further bogs down performance. At that rate perhaps I'm better off using a thumb drive or adding an external SSD. Serious question: Is there a difference in components used in a Mac's SDRAM and those used in an SSD?
It's hard to understand that after all my years as a photographer with excellent SLRs (began work in the 60s) when we photogs were striving for excellence in our work with the best lenses, the best studio and darkroom equipment, that now that we have such awesome digital cameras, all we see are apps that provide some sort of retro look: Polaroid, lomo, scratches, lens flare, etc. If I wanted those effects, I'd take out my old Leica or Voightlander... However, whatever floats your boat...go for it.
I think this works best with Lion! heh-heh
Just a note about pricing: The host app for your Mac costs $20. Then you have to buy the client (iOS) app for $10, for a $30 total for this setup. Is it worth it? I don't know yet. I'm going all in and I'll soon find out.
Save $5 and buy Transmit, which has this feature built in as a MBI extension. Just click on the menubar icon and select which remote server you want to mount as a Finder volume. In addition, you get the full feature set of Transmit.
Interested in exploring "Dark Mode?" I came across this tidbit last night: You can test out Dark Mode by entering the following code into Terminal, logging out and logging back in: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences AppleInterfaceTheme Dark. To reverse Dark Mode to Light Mode, change “Dark” to “Light” and log out and log back in.
If you already have Path finder, a way to clip a file path is built in. Just use the Edit > Copy Path and select from common path formats (UNIX, Windows, HFS, Terminal...) and it's clipped to the clipboard. I don't understand the outrageous price on Get File Path...Path Finder is a bargain at $40 as it does so much. If you're going to spend nearly $30, go for the extra ten and get a versatile Finder alternative. (I have no affiliation with Path Finder.)
For what it's worth: The only apparent difference between the free version and the in-app upgrade to the "pro" version is the pro version lets you use the calendar function. I'm not a "markdown" writer but I can see how that feature would be handy. Free is free and this isn't a bad app for taking notes. I've seen worse paid apps.
It seems as if there are several apps with the same name floating around like Baron Harkkonen. The best of the bunch has been discontinued but is still available here: http://mac.softpedia.com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=5574&t=4&i=1 and I can attest that it runs fine on OS X 10.9.3 (I just used it earlier today). It's free.
