Use Writer, the online Darkroom version!

As a blogger, you probably already knew Darkroom, a minimalist full-screen text editor( inspired by the WriteRoom a similar processor offer on Mac OS). What’s good about Darkroom is that it forces your focus your writing content and nothing else. It has no window caption bar, status bar, menu bar, tool bar or window borders. Sitting on your screen nakely with its full dark background and green text, you will feel as if you are the famous hacker in “Matrix”. :)

For those like me use a *nix box, there is a Java-Version of Darkroom, JDarkRoom, which is still in beta. I tried install it on my OpenSUSE laptop, but it seems has some problems to start up.

检查一下你的settings下的keywords里有没有对应的php函数名: _e 和 __。 我现在很少发双语的文章了,原因在我的另外一篇文章有说明: http://readtheweb.info/2008/05/11/wordpress-problem-url-encoding-tags-slug/ 如果你知道怎么解决那个tags的问题,还请告诉我哦。 我以前发文章时,当然不是自动翻译成其他语言的,而是手动翻译。

感谢博主的回复! Update from source解决了,下来又有个问题。 安装了插件,可是要发布多语言文章时,右边侧栏始终没看到语言选择项啊?是哪个步骤出了差错? 目前正在实施WP与online store的改造,很大可能用到多语言版本,完成发布后与博主分享。
