We are beginning writing tests for Etherpad Lite and to do this we have partnered up with Sauce Labs who provide an automated browser testing platform. We’re using both Scout and onDemand to accomplish our goals.
At the Etherpad foundation we’re naturally big fans of Linux. I’m not sure if fan is the right word actually.. Linux is at the core of everything we do so we’re beyond fans, we’re actively contributing to try to make software better and we tend to start on Linux then support other operating systems secondly. One of our favorite Linux distro’s is Ubuntu so it makes us really proud to see Etherpad Lite being discussed at the Ubuntu Developer Summit!
This is the second time Ubuntu have actively supported Etherpad and we’re hoping we can further our relationship. Thanks Ubuntu developers and keep up the great work :)
It’s been a real busy road getting to this point but we’re finally happy with the current status. Big thanks goes to Chad, Egil, Matthias, Robin and a huge thanks to our contributors, sponsors and supporters.
If you aren’t familiar with Etherpad Lite then check it out below! For those who still don’t get it, it’s a pure web based collaborative editor that’s open source and our goal is make collaborative editing the standard on the web (but only if you want it).
The twitter style links plugin brings to life those @etherpadorg style links. Enabling this plugin gives users the ability to click on the links and be directed to a users twitter.com profile where users can follow or unfollow their victim.
