[ANN] DevLists :: Mailing lists made easy


#1

I have tried various mail clients to read the Rails mailing list for the
past 12 months. As the list volume grew, it became utterly impossible to
browse through the new messages and very hard to locate the useful gems
I had previously found. After subscribing to a few more lists, I
realized that there had to be a better way. I could not find anything
to meet my needs, so I designed DevLists, which, thanks to rails, was
easier done than said.

http://DevLists.com aims to make managing your mailing lists as simple
as possible by providing one simple, clean interface for reading your
favorite mailing lists and posting responses.

DevLists is packed full of features to make it possible to keep
up-to-date on multiple mailing lists, including:

  • Ability to mark favorites by flagging interesting messages, threads,
    and posters
  • Easily track new/unread messages for each subscribed list
  • Fully functional keyboard navigation
  • Full support for folding quotes within messages
  • All messages are persisted for easy reference and searching.

All this and it is just v1.0! Take some time to watch the movie and
decide for yourself. Then be sure to let me know what you think!

Cheers!

Kudos, Dave. From a quick look that looks really promising.

Oops, mail configuration problem. :slight_smile:

Subject: Are you planning Subversion, SVK, and Perl (including
DBI) lists

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at devlists.com.
I’m afraid I wasn’t able to deliver your message to the following
addresses.
This is a permanent error; I’ve given up. Sorry it didn’t work out.

removed_email_address@domain.invalid:
Sorry, no mailbox here by that name. (#5.1.1)
