16.5. Suggested Supporting Tools

Just like any web site project, IntegraXor project mainly consist of text files for HTML pages, styling and scripting. Other than configuration file and raster image files, engineer shall be able to manage those text files with many useful external tools that freely availabe. For instance, engineer could compare two project folders with WinMerge for differences, engineer could also use Agent Ransack for text content searching in Windows XP environment.

Below are a list of tools from external developer. Usage of these tools are solely on engineer responsibility and no support is provided from IntegraXor, although we may help wherever possible. Please check out its terms and conditions, license agreement. We also encourage user to donate and support to these developers should the softwares are found useful.

Text Editing

There are many free and excellent text editor like "ConText" which can be downloaded at http://www.contexteditor.org/index.php or "Notepad++" at http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net which also has another portable version that can be found at http://www.portableapps.com/

Revision Control

A serious and careful engineer may like to use revision/version control for their work for traceability. "SVN" can be found at http://subversion.tigris.org.

Revision Control GUI

Engineer who use Subversion may need Tortoise for supplement. http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org


If a full blown version control system appears overwhelming or excessive to an engineer, a simple text comparison is recommended for simple file comparing and merging. "WinMerge" can be downloaded at http://winmerge.org.


In Windows XP, the text content searching for unknown file is not possible in default system setting. Engineer may need a content searching tool like "Agent Ransack" which can be downloaded at http://www.mythicsoft.com/agentransack
