- updated my nightly build of webkit
- in a terminal, issued the following command:

Firefox trunk build and webkit nightly builds both support WebGL, the upcoming Standard for hardware accelerated web browser 3D graphics. So I wanted to get my feet wet with this new technology and after short analysis, I did the following steps as possibly fastest solution to get a working demo (in my case on a mac):

Soon there will be a new flavor of JS / phonegap iPhone apps: Mike Nachbaur is working on a phonagap branch, which allows (or hopefully soon will allow, I haven't tested yet) to create in JS native Cocoa UI widgets such as tabbars and toolbars. Apple often just follows with Apple-branded versions of what smart developers do ahead of time, so if this will happen in this case as well, I would expect many of the iPhone developers to switch from Objective-C to JS.

Try it out. Unfortunately it might take a little while until it will find its way into bespin, because right now, CodeMirror based syntax highlighting in bespin tip is disabled due to some one restructuring of the canvas paint function.

And for those who need less than Helma NG, this article might be helpful.
Update: I was wrong about template inheritance, Helma NG does support it, via the "extends" tag. And the development branch has now also appengine persistence support (demo).

Was offline yesterday, therefore missed to be among the first 10K to try it out, but a bit of web research revealed that it should work right out of the box:

While the basic features of the codemirror syntaxengine now are part of bespin (and that is just syntax highlighting), I started today to experiment to add an advanced feature: Auto indenting of current line or a selection based on lexical analysis. The user just has to press CTRL + TAB (but could be any other key binding of course). The information about what codemirror thinks is the correct indentation is already internally stored for each line of the source document, all I had to do was to add some code which inserts or deletes some whitespace at the begin of those lines the user marked for auto-indentation. That is at least what I thought. Unfortunately it doesn't work yet reliable (and that is my fault, because the original codemirror editor does perfectly auto-indent) and also is not yet integrated into bespins undo/redo system, so it needs another iteration, before I can submit a patch, but if anybody wants to help working on it, take a look at the auto-indent code I added.
