I was reading Jeff Atwood’s post “What You Can’t See You Can’t Get“, and really liked the Glimpse project screencast and wondered how it could work with or handle more complex rendering stacks. Particularly in web development like a LAMP stack.
I created a quick AutoHotKey script to play with with this idea. Basically the same thought of holding down a key >> preview in a web browser >> let go of key >> back to editing. I hope my quickly hacked together partial-solution helps someone else out there~
