Owncloud setup – replace Dropbox and Google Calendar

This article is work in progress and will be updated along the way. Last update: Sep 6th 2015 – problems, problems.

Why Owncloud?

For some time (before dropdropbox) I thought about replacing dropbox as my primary cloud storage. Instead of choosing another provider like Google Drive or Wuala I decided to try owncloud.

Coda PHP & Web Toolkit 3.4

Feature removal: This version doesn’t feature proCSSor anymore. The developer will not continue the proCSSor Web API, so this feature is removed from Coda PHP & Web Toolkit.
Since the API was a free service anyway and he’ll focus on developing his own software this is understandable. More information can be found on his website: procssorapp.com.


And since Coda 2 is said to be released in the near future I won’t add any new features until then. Therefore this version has some bugfixes only.

Syslogviewer widget 1.3 – Update

In this version you can view a single remote logfile by entering the URL (must start with http).

This works via curl and is of course still very beta. The curl connection has a timeout and is being reloaded, so it should work with files that update continuously on the server.

Please note: The remote logfile should be text-only – html is not being rendered (and that would be very difficult).



Safari Pinboard & Coda PHP – what’s next

Currently I’m a bit busy with work (and soon: holiday) – but then I’ll continue with some new features for the Safari Pinboard extension and Coda PHP & Web plugin:

Safari Pinboard extension

The most annoying bug (Can’t save tabsets) is fixed now, another strange candidate is still open: When adding a link the title of the previous page is used.. Happens currently only for one user but since this bug is completely improbable I really want to know if someone encounters similar problems. If so, please comment here.

Safari 5.1 has some new features for extension – you can open a popover window (on a button) now and do something else, which I seem to have forgotten. Nothing revolutionary, so I really have to think if it’s worth integrating these features – by having to maintain a fallback solution for Safari 5.0 users..

The next step will be to integrate more of the Pinboard API. This might include features like: Auto-tagging (applying always a given tag or according to a rule for new bookmarks), showing unread items in a Safari menu instead of opening the pinboard website, improving the search feature, doing more with tags etc.

Coda PHP plugin

There are two nice tools which might be worth integrating: PHP beautifier and CSS Lint. I’ll look if and how these tools make sense as addition/replacement for the currently used tools.

But more interesting is this question: What about Coda 2? Maybe the next version already includes PHP/HTML/CSS validation (Okay – HTML validation is somehow included in the current version, but it works only very limited..). So before looking at 348567 other tools I’d rather wait for 2.0 – a native integration into Coda would be by far the best solution. But currently only the developers from panic know more…
