The Pencil Project

Category: Firefox, Showcase

Pencil Project

José Jeria pointed us to a great looking XUL application that allows you to sketch GUI’s and then export them to PNG:

With the power of the underlying Mozilla Gecko engine, Pencil turns your excellent Firefox 3 browser into a sketching tool with just a 400-kilobyte installation package.

Pencil will always be free and can run on virtually all platforms that Firefox 3 supports.

Always good to see people using the power of XUL that still has features that I hope to see HTML get.

Pretty nifty. I hope we see some good stencil sets developed for it.

It uses XUL and SVG. This is a very impressive tool.

Would love to see Ext components in this as well!
