Code Viewers

I just a neat blog entry by SteveChy on an alternative way to display Java code. Check out the example image he provided. Better yet, read the post yourself at his Free Ideo Monoid blog yourself.

The general idea is to avoid colorization to specify things in your code. Instead he will use size and positioning to convey meaning. Some of the ideas looked good.

It appears that this is just a prototype. Let's hope this guy follows through and releases an app to view and maybe even edit Java code. Good stuff.
