Elemental's Drumbeat 2.0, Part 5

By Scott Clark Still don't know enough about Drumbeat? Keep reading! Another useful aspect of this tool is the fact that you can "protect" your previously created source code from being changed by Drumbeat by using the "Passthrough HTML" function. Drumbeat doesn't write or interpret your code, and publishes it just like you've written it. Drumbeat did have a problem of crashing on me if I had several other tools open, such as a screen capture program, my email client and several instances of my Web browser, but to be fair, Elemental does recommend 64 MB of RAM, which is all I was running at the time. The tool is quite system intensive... Drumbeat may be the answer to many site designer's prayers. The tool places every aspect of your site at your total control, without sacrificing quality. You can import your current pages without changing anything, add dynamic (read DHTML) elements to your site, along with database connectivity, and create a site that can be accessed by any or all browsers. You do have to provide or have access to an ASP-compatible Web server if you wish to feature live database access, but that's not too difficult. All in all, Drumbeat equals efficiency and ease of use, and for developers with too much to do in too little time, that's a giant step in the right direction.
