Apollo File Sharing via Bonjour (Multicasting)

Friday, May 25th, 2007

I’ve been playing around with an Apollo project, dubbed ‘AirShare’, that utilises Bonjour to share files on the local area network, allowing people using the program on other computers to browse these, and download them.
Bonjour is basically a networking protocol developed by Apple that uses multicast Domain Name System service records to locate devices such […]

acts_as_syncable - Rails plugin to sync lots of databases

Sunday, May 20th, 2007

Well, I’ve been developing this plugin for a while now, and here it is! The use case I have for this is client side Rails applications that sometimes need to be offline.
The plugin allows one ‘master’ db to sync with unlimited ’slave’ databases. Records created/updated/deleted on the client will also be updated on the slave […]

Competition for Juggernaut - Shooting Star

Monday, May 7th, 2007

I’ve been monitoring the rubyforge news and spotted this. It’s a comet implementation of Juggernaut (rather than using flash) and they use a native push server (so only for linux). They’ve got a good screencast here (the page is in Japanese, but just scroll down).

Making Rails an EXE, only 4 mb

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

If you’ve been reading this blog you’ll know I’m exciting about client side Rails applications, and the opportunities that offers. So, in order to distribute a Rails application you need to bundle it in in an exe, since the end-user doesn’t necessarily have Ruby/Rails installed.
One method is detailed here. I’ve been playing around with it […]

Synchronising two Rails apps

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

I’ve recently been looking into how to synchronise two Rails applications together, one will be the master, the other the slave. When a record gets created/updated/deleted in one db, I want it to do similarly in the other. Why am I doing this? So I can have a Rails application on the client side with […]

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

Sorry, another long title ;)
Just picked this up on the Artemis mailing list, not sure how he does it, and haven’t tested it, but thought I’d post anyway…

Lot’s of new announcements, Open Source Flex, Silverlight, Slingshot, New S3 Pricing

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

Flex was open sourced sometime last week, or at least flex 3 will be. This doesn’t affect my work too much, but it means Eribium will be a more legitimate open source applications. Also I’m looking forward to the custom components that should make it into the general release. Adobe should look at Ext for […]
