Zapwerk plans to use next week’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco to debut Siteyard, its new online authoring tool. Siteyard is being touted as compatible with Apple’s forthcoming Mac OS X.
Zapwerk says that Siteyard functions as a staging server, enabling users to separate Web design from content. The software provides multiple, authorized users with the capability to update Web content in a collaborative fashion. Users can edit content from different locations, without the need to know HTML. Siteyard supports XML and features a plug-in architecture with support for authoring tools.
Despite Siteyard’s touted platform-independence, making sure it works under Mac OS X is important, said Zapwerk CEO Dorian Cougias.
“Siteyard’s core function of real-time, instant Web publishing and its Mac OS X compatibility is crucial because a large portion of Web designers prefer the Macintosh graphic advantage,” said Cougias in a recent press release.
Zapwerk will be exhibiting at booth number 2417 in the South Hall.
Macworld Conference & Expo runs from January 9 – 12, 2001 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, Calif.
