Here’s a brief overview of a framework I’m working on for Titanium. It’s a jQuery / Mootools-esque framework that allows you to chain the creation of UI elements together. Follow it or contribute on Github!
There’s a lot of buzz with the new mobile web frameworks and mobile platforms. There’s also a lot of confusion and vague terms being thrown around that are causing people to misunderstand what each of these tools do. I hope to clear up some of the confusion with a few brief points.
To the many open source web designers out there: Your sites are crap. To a slew of businesses built on open source CMSs: Your online presence sucks.
There. I said it. Now that I’ve got that out of the way here’s the obligatory paragraph of introduction:
The open source CMS world is booming. CMS communities empower millions of websites for small business owners, web designers, developers, marketing firms, IT departments, corporations, and governments. Everyday businesses use open source CMSs to do things that would not otherwise be possible for them. Everyday many web designers, developers, and marketing firms bill their clients for something they could not otherwise deliver without an open source CMS…at least at the budget it was delivered. Open source CMSs empower massive amounts of websites. To this point I say: AWESOME. However, with any type of empowerment yields issues that communities must navigate. This blog post will address one such issue: the service industry and how open source CMSs affect it.
Talking with a few leads today got me thinking about maintaining a group of iPhone apps for several clients, specifically the design and layout. Having to push out updates to the App Store just for a design change is so procedural. Good news is there is a way around it!
I can hear the moans, groans, and clacking of pitch forks as people find out there’s Yet Another WordPress vs Joomla blog post. Who dares write on the subject, that has been beat to death over the last several years, and assume he can write yet another WordPress vs Joomla comparison? Me (I have a battle axe).
