If you’ve ever maintained a web site with an FTP program and a text editor, you know what I’m talking about when I say that there has to be a better way.
Well, I thought about that so long that I finally did something about it. If you are using IIS, make sure to check out Blue Spark.
The past week I’ve been putting together this tidy little self–contained program that allows you to administer your text–based files on the server itself, rather than having to worry about multiple transfers back and forth. Viewed through a web browser, Blue Spark is plain and simple, but effective enough to be useful.
Note: While officially designated v1.0, I thought of a security update this morning that has to happen. I’ll be working on that the next few days, so if you download a copy now, make sure to come back and grab the update if you plan on using it for any length of time.
