Screem is a website development environment. Its purpose is to increase
productivity when constructing a web site by providing quick access to
commonly used features of web sites (such as tables). It is written for
use with the GNOME (http://www.gnome.org) desktop environment
Unlike most other website/html editors screem *does not* provide a WYSIWYG
display of the page, but instead just gives you the raw html source code in
its editor window. This enables you to type the html you want and also
quickly add commonly used tags by using the features provided. The reasoning
behind this is that WYSIWYG editors, in general, do not produce good valid
html and also can slow you down if they do not support a tag that you wish
to insert, therefore by just having the source shown to be edited you can
type what you want when you want, but also have the ease of use of clicking
a button to have the tag(s) you want inserted.
One of the main features is the html tag list. This provides a tree that,
with one click, you can add the tag you want into the source. The tree
is entirely configurable from the programs preferences allowing you to add
whatever tags you want and also the tag options to use for them.
Screem features a plugin system where developers can write their own
features as a module and have Screem load it in at run time. The plugins
have complete access to the UI and as such can add things to it, such as
menu entries for the plugin, or a new toolbar icon.
The image wizard button pixmap on the toolbar is from gwp, the folder icons
in the filelist are from gmc, the rest are standard Gnome icons.
