GiellaLT provides rule-based language technology aimed at minority and indigenous languages
SubEthaEdit, named after a famous net in The Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy (SubEthaNet — long before Internet was invented), is a standard text editor, just like TextEdit, NotePad, or whatever - except that it allows instant and easy collaboration and concurrent editing. What you see is what the other person does - WYSIWTOPD - instantly, everywhere. It is perfect for writing meeting memos together, for debugging together, for collaborative article writing etc. Getting the other buddy into your document is as easy as drag-and-drop.
We have bought a site version of SubEthaEdit for this project. Talk to Trond.
You can also download a 30-day trial from the SEE website, or try out the free 2.2 version of SEE (which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be compatible with the latest versions of MacOS X (Lion and Snow Leopard).
We have installed SubEthaEdit on our main server, such that a number of shared documents are always available for everyone to use. This is especially nice when everyone collaborating is behind a firewall or NAT. Just click on the following link: see://divvun.no.
Under the first menu (SubEthaEdit), choose “preferences”, and the tab “Editing”. “Default encoding” should be “UTF-8” and “Line endings” should be “Unix (LF)”. “Highligth Syntax”, “Show matching brackets”, “Show line numbers” and “Wrap lines by word” are nice choices as well.
On the “Printing” tab, “Show line numbers” is a good choice.
On the “Advanced” tabs, install the command line tools.
We have made a number of modes available for the formal languages we
lexc etc. Have a look in
$GTHOME/tools/see-tools/. These modes will help you in editing the
most common document formats in use. A number of other modes are
available from the SEE modes

This is where SEE really shines, even today, with a lot of online pastebins available. You may invite other people into your document. Do as follows:
