About Gorilla Editor

Why?

I wrote this software, because I needed a way to cobble together working code examples with no fuzz.

It should be easy to use, as easy as simply firing up Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome and opening up a web-page.

I also needed a way to share these documents and it should be as easy as sharing a link.

The link is the content!

An additional requirement was to always have the content available, even if this site goes down. This means, if you have the (share-)link, you basically have all the content.

The content is basically a gzipped and then hex-encoded string, attached to the shared URL (as GET-parameter).

With this url, you can take the content parameter and decode it like so:

php -r "echo gzinflate(hex2bin('2b492d2e0100'));"
