re: Some of the Best Coding Tools Aren't Coding Tools VIEW POST


I'm on a Mac, so I tend to write stand-alone shell/ruby scripts, and then just call them from TextExpander.

I haven't tried it, but implementing a pure JavaScript REST call within TextExpander should be possible, provided TextExpander's runtime supports XMLHttpRequest, and you set it to make synchronous calls, rather than asynch.

Now you've piqued my interest. Gonna have to play with this a little bit when I have time. I'll let you know what I find. :)

That's my issue at the moment, I did not manage to use XMLHttpRequest yet. I will also try to solve this and will keep you posted :)
