I have hundreds of linked HTML pages (mostly software manuals) that I’d like to move into one of the DT applications. My main goal is to have a database of fully searchable pages, which I can then browse from within the application (embedded links working, etc.) without having to launch a web browser.
This sounds like something that DevonAgent would be better at, but I just wanted to find out what everyone else thought. Which application is better suited to this?
Also, is there any special settings or steps I need to do to ensure that page links work locally when pulled into the database?
same request. when browsing via safari i’d like to store this or that webpage in DT. via “services” DT only imports a text file. so i use this (not very intuitive) workaround: i launch the webpage in DevonAgent and hit the DT button there… so a new item in “services” (e.g. “import webpage”) would be helpful.
BUT: in DT you cannot edit a webpage, only the source code, which isn’t very handy because you can’t copy text from a webpage stored in DT and if you copy text from the source code you get al the useless html tags too…
i’d appreciate webpages being editable in DT (at least text highlighting for copy/paste purposes)
Bookmarks will definitely come, but version 1.2.1 (will be released today) is basically a maintenance release (minor improvements and a few fixes). Other things to come are for example integrated translation of HTML pages or filtering of languages.
DT Pro will be definitely a complete offline archive (including a download manager and site sucker). The WebKit integration of DT PE will also be improved, e.g. loading images/style sheets from the database if possible.
For convenience sake, is there any chance you’ll post an off-forum summary of upcoming features for future releases that have been announced/discussed here? With a “this is not a promise, guarantee, or commitment” disclaimer, of course.
