Development environment for coding websites
Dendrite is not a WYSIWYG or drag-and-drop website designer or traditional server-side content management system. Dendrite is closer to a development environment than a content management system. It's for you if you want to hand-code or already have your code and want to manage the site as code rather than visually. It contains a number of features and tools which will help you to do this. They key feature, which gives the app its name, is that it can store text or code as 'objects'. Anything that appears in more than one place can be stored as an object and edited in one place. A placeholder indicates an object's position in the main file. Objects can contain other objects. The server simply has to serve a pre-compiled page. There is no content management system on the server to be hacked. Your pages are not constructed when they are served. This makes your website faster and more secure than if you use a traditional content management system (CMS). - a development environment that allows you easy access to your code for editing - syntax highlighting for html files - the ability to edit common code or text once. Changes are cascaded at compile time - a publish button that allows you to upload the entire site or selected files by ftp or sftp
