Edgar2 starts

I start Edgar2 project, which will run on Rails3.

Basic idea is the same. I'm now porting Rails2.3 based Edgar to Rails3 Engine.

It's very good practice for me to catch up latest Rails advantage. As you may know, Rails3 is much better than Rails3.

Please aware that current repository is just pre-alpha, but anyway here are the URL:

git://jjedgar.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/jjedgar/edgar2 (read-only)
ssh://ido00\@jjedgar.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/jjedgar/edgar2 (read/write)... read more

Album feature is updated

Album has a new feature; large image is resized, cached and viewed on browser. If photo hight is larger than Album::Cache::HIGHT_MAX, it is resized to that to fit browser. Currently, resize value is fixed now.

I don't plan to release it as v0.93.00, but you can get this feature by getting from GIT repository.

By this resizing feature, my photo of my daughters by Digital-camera can be browsed by my parent and my sister who live far from here via internet. As you see Edgar Album feature, photo comment can be easily inserted/updated... Enjoy!... read more

Repository is migrated from Subversion to Git

Dear all,

I migrated Edgar repository from Subversion to Git. This is not git-svn gateway. Rather, it is the permanent migration.

The reason is because I love git now than svn...

Svn repository will be deleted in near future.

Project Home page typo was fixed.

Edgar homepage had several typos, that was Juli 1.00.01 bug;-(

Now, it is fixed.

Sorry for your inconvenient.
Best Regards

Project Home page is updated.

I have developed 'juli'(*) in these several months, that is an offline wiki & outline-processor. So I changed my Edgar project page from Trac to this:

That was stressful to update Trac wiki because it required online, poor Editor (just HTML textarea!), and slow response...

When I changed to juli, these issues are cleared. I feel a little bit happier;-)
