Ron's Place Apps is a small software company run by Aaron Stewart, since march 2013. Product development and consulting are our main activities. Years of programming experience and the constructive feedback coming from our customers have allowed us to create two fully accomplished products, Ron's Editor and Ron's Renamer.
We are always working on improving our current products and producing news ones, so watch this space. We count on your feedback.
Ron's Editor is a powerful CSV file editor. It can open any format of separated text, including the standard comma and tab separated files (CSV and TSV), and allows total control over their content and structure.
This is the ultimate CSV editor, whether you need to simply edit a CSV file, clean some data, or merge and convert to another format, this is the solution for you.
Ron's Renamer is a tool for renaming many files in one go, using rules like search and replace. Batches of files can be 10's to 1000's, and span multiple directories, with an unlimited number of rules that can be combined to achieve almost any result.
Picture the scene. I am sitting at my desk early morning, having just arrived, checking my email in my laptop. A colleague says 'Time for a cup of coffee?' 'Splendid idea', say I, 'Just let me shut down my laptop'.
As I was shutting down I noticed Windows 10 was installing some updates. That was the last time I saw the laptop working for over a week.
Over the last few month here at Ron’s Place Apps, whilst keeping a close eye on the development of Windows 10, we have been busy with our own activities.
Now that the new web site is live I have been able to turn my attention fully back to product development. As a result, a few new versions of Ron's Editor (now at 2014.12.03.0808) have been released, and between them they contain many small requests from our valued customers. Some of the larger enhancements are still on the list, but it is good to clear the way for work on the new features.
The website has now undergone five major updates in its lifetime for various different reasons; some technical some emotional. In general there has always been some progression of functionality, or technology, but that may not always have been visible from the outside. Let's face it the entire look and feel of a web site can be changed with some template tweaks and some style sheeting.
As a first post on my new sites blog I thought it fitting to write a little about the progression of the site over the years and the reasons for choices along the way.
