The making of TSW WebCoder 2013 part 12 – The full picture

November 1, 2012

As promised in the last post, here's the very first full screenshot of WebCoder 2013 ever published - this is how it looks right now! First the picture and then a few words about it (click for the full-size screenshot):

WebCoder 2013 main interface

Your first impression might be that it looks a lot like WebCoder 2010, and sure, the structure is the same. But take a closer look and notice all the subtle differences. Some of them have already been mentioned in previous posts, while others haven't. Here's my list, from top to bottom:

  • The new look, which adapts to the version of Windows you're using (this is from Windows 7)
  • The Ribbon, of course
  • The new validation view, where the line numbers also tell you about the type of message (information, warning or error)
  • The status bar that shows you standards and validation information and lets you see and change the document encoding
  • The status bar link that tells you about new updates, e.g. from the TSW blog (only visible when there are unread items)

And those changes are just the ones visible on the screenshot - there's plenty of other hidden gems around the interface :)

The above screenshot is, deliberately, a bit "busy", because there's a lot I want to show you. However, don't be fooled - WebCoder can be very minimalistic, with a single press on your F7 key (click for the full-size screenshot):

Lots of room for your code right there, and of course, all the validation can be disabled as well.

So, what do you think? I hope you like what you've seen so far, but we're not quite done yet - stay tuned for more WebCoder 2013 information :)

    Thank you for the kind words, Alexander. I’m hoping to have the first beta version ready really soon. More info will be posted here as soon as it happens :)

    Pricing: What is the pricing structure for TSW 2013? Will those who have purchased TSW 2010 buy an upgrade or buy the full product at a lower price than first time buyers do? (I could also ask: Will I be wasting my money if I buy the 2010 now rather than wait for a few days and then buy 2013?)

  7. Kasper (TSW) says:

    Hi Arni,

    There will be a discount for all current owners of WebCoder – usually it’s around 25%. You will have to wait a little bit longer than a few days for the final version of WebCoder 2013 though. The first beta version is soon ready, but it usually takes a couple of months to test it and finish it up for the final release :)
