Real Time Collaborative Editing with EtherPad

Written by Amit Agarwal on Nov 19, 2008

EtherPad seems to have solved a major issue with online collaborative editors – the lack of real time updates.

To start, you click on the “Create New Pad” button, and EtherPad creates a unique page whose URL you can send to your group members to collaborate.

All users are assigned colors, and edits made by them color-coded. Other features are a simple chat window, revision control, and syntax highlighting. (Thanks John)
