Syntax coloured view source in Safari 14.10.2004

I've been reading the SubEthaEdit newsgroup, to see if there were any excellent hacks, and tips on how to do better with the editor. The other day, I came across a thread that mentioned SubEthaFari by Martin Pittenhauer, which is a handy app for those of us who happen to Like Safari, but who thinks its lack of syntax colouring in view source, such as Camino, Firefox, and pretty much any other browser out there, is pretty lousy. SubEthaFari allows you to use SubEthaEdit as an external viewer for the view source command, with syntax colouring and all.

Other contributors to the thread about alternative source viewing were pretty kool I might add. The geekiest one of them must be typing:

<code>vim http://www.codingmonkeys.de/</code>

in the terminal. Excellent alternative.

The one I ended up using was hacked together earlier today by Kevin Ballard. It is called SafariSource, and simply just adds syntax colouring to the view source in Safari. Very nippy.
