(No offence, Layervault.)
This is quite different from LayerVault, but even if it weren't we wouldn't take offense.
Really fantastic. I love the clean minimalism. I would love to see a fullscreen button. I know though in Safari you couldn't' add comments while in fullscreen (Apple limits keyboard input).
What's the name of the JS library that applies a blur to everything on the dom? blur.js I forget I've seen it before it uses SVG filter right?
Eff yeah Matthew. Eff yeah.
I can see this being very very useful, well done
Damn! This is sweet!
My only comment is that little description below [frontpage] is really hard to read because it almost blends in with the background. I have to squint really hard. But otherwise you killin' it man! nice work!
Not sure how you can say http://prevue.it is anywhere near sucking!
As far as a really lightweight tool goes.. this looks great, nice job
Prevue is a good little tool. Red Pen looks nice too, but don't bash the others to promote your own thing! Especially when it's not very different...
There's Prevue, Influenceapp, Notable, CageApp, Notism, Designsignoff, Noteboxapp, Discuss.io, and now RedPen. They all do the same thing.
You're right, Arty, being bashy is immature. I said it to express my frustration.
And yes, whilst all those apps have the same feature checklist, they're very different in user experience. Some have lots of page reloads, some require lots of clicks, some require form-filling and email-inviting— all this contributes to the subject feeling that either the app is helping you get work done or just getting in your way.
That's what I felt. That's why I felt motivated to learn Ruby and Rails and make my own thing.
You just made my life a little bit easier.
Nice work! I'll give it a try today at work :]
This is great!
Yeah seems fast & useful. Thanks!
How long did it take you to learn Ruby? Did you have any previous programming experience? I can hack together PHP but I've been looking at something like Ruby on Rails to build various little side projects with.
I really like the animation and fluidity of Red Pen. Not sure I'd use it myself, but feels damn nice to use!
Beautiful site. Did you build all the JS and CSS from scratch or did you use any tools?
