Lazy Start

A handy tool for web developers

I often make websites, and I find that I always have to type in a doctype, make the basic CSS layout, etc. That takes away a lot of time. So now, I decided to make a small program that does it for me - and anyone else who's also irritated.

Feature requests are welcome

Latest Update

Version 1.2b
Changed a spelling error, and fixed a bug with the footer.

Version 1.2
Added the navigation editor and fixed some window bugs.

Version 1.1b
Fixed some minor bugs with the Additional Code box.

Version 1.1
Added so that you can add extra CSS that is attached to every page you generate, as requested by HoboBen. Also added custom sample text, for testing the CSS.

Version 1.0:
Initial release.

When I try an run it I get an error message saying that it failed to initialize properly.

Hmm... Do you have the .NET framework installed?

Nice - and well done on the logically structured div markup with body content first followed by the navigations after. (Yeay!)

I may actually find this very useful very soon

Excellent idea, and nice and light-weight too.

Thanks phoenix.

Hmm... Do you have the .NET framework installed?

Nope. That will be it i suppose. Anyway I'm downloading version 2.0 now.

Thanks, HoboBen There may still be some bugs with the indentation, but hopefully it works fine. In the next version I may add a small navigation editor, are there any other useful features I could add?

Hey, I do have one feature suggestion - if the program finds "more.css" in it's directory, it cut 'n' pastes that into new CSS documents, for example if I have my own standard way of defining my H1, H2, H3 tags, I can get that automatically plugged in each time.

And the example Lorem Ipsum could contain some <h1>s to <h3>s and some links too, for easy preview of those tags stylings.

Wow what a cool little app. I still have to make a website using all CSS instead of tables. Now I can just use this. Cheers dude

Nice, ill be using it a lot. Thanks a lot

Download the new version, HoboBen!
Tuesday, 03 April 2007, 06:59
Ok, new version. Now there's a navigation editor.
Tuesday, 03 April 2007, 12:54
power mousey
and with GPS tracking?
Tuesday, 03 April 2007, 15:36
If I add color changing, will you give me five points?
Tuesday, 03 April 2007, 19:17
How about an option to change the color? After all, this is Lazy Start...

Edit: Yes.

Hey, we're not going to leave you alone until you have a fully-featured Lazy-WYSIWYG DreamWeaver beater
Wednesday, 04 April 2007, 15:57
Hehe, then I guess I'll have to start working.

Edit: Do you think I should keep it simple or should I pack it with features?
Wednesday, 04 April 2007, 16:52
It's not such a lazy start if we have to spend ten minutes learning how to use the thing!

Maybe make the extra features not so obvious, or perhaps make two versions - LazyStart and ProStart?
Monday, 28 May 2007, 08:39
Damn, I've lost the source and the executable :/ Maybe it's for the better - the source was incredibly messy and a pain to extend Perhaps I should make a new version with a better interface?

Anyways, does anyone have the program somewhere on the computer?
Monday, 28 May 2007, 10:28
I think this is the latest:
Lazy Start (RAR)

Can I have permission to keep it up there? I'm only using 198/ 435,557 MB of my webspace

You can do whatever you want with it; reverse engineer it, tell your friends you made it, upload it to porn sites etc
