Cappuccino Web Framework in Objective-J

Posted · Category: Framework, LGPL License

Cappuccino Web Framework

Cappuccino is an open source application framework for developing applications that look and feel like the desktop software users are familiar with.

Cappuccino is built on top of standard web technologies like JavaScript, and it implements most of the familiar APIs from GNUstep and Apple’s Cocoa frameworks. When you program in Cappuccino, you don’t need to concern yourself with the complexities of traditional web technologies like HTML, CSS, or even the DOM. The unpleasantries of building complex cross browser applications are abstracted away for you.

Cappuccino was implemented using a new programming language called Objective-J, which is modelled after Objective-C and built entirely on top of JavaScript. Programs written in Objective-J are interpreted in the client, so no compilation or plugins are required.

Instead of doing all or most of the work on the server, Cappuccino applications do as much as possible in the client. A typical application would never reload, but rather send and recieve data using traditional AJAX techniques and then present that data in the client code.

Open Source Ubiquity Enables User-Generated Mashups

Posted · Category: Framework, GPL License, LGPL License

You’re writing an email to invite a friend to meet at a local San Francisco restaurant that neither of you has been to. You’d like to include a map. Today, this involves the disjointed tasks of message composition on a web-mail service, mapping the address on a map site, searching for reviews on the restaurant on a search engine, and finally copying all links into the message being composed. And you haven’t even really sent a map or useful reviews—only links to them.

Mozilla Labs has announced the launch of Ubiquity. Ubiquity empower users to control the web browser with language-based instructions. (With search, users type what they want to find. With Ubiquity, they type what they want to do.) And it enables on-demand, user-generated mashups with existing open Web APIs. (In other words, allowing everyubone–not just Web developers–to remix the Web so it fits their needs, no matter what page they are on, or what they are doing.)

Ubiquity lets you map and insert maps anywhere; translate on-page; search amazon, google, wikipedia, yahoo, youtube, etc.; digg and twitter; lookup and insert yelp review; get the weather; syntax highlight any code you find; and a lot more. Ubiquity “command list” to see them all.

All of the code underlying the Ubiquity experiment is being released as open source software under the  GPL/MPL/LGPL tri-license as well.

Boost Website Load Time with Javascript CSS Compressor

Posted · Category: Code, LGPL License, Tools

One of the keys to getting your pages to load quicker is to make fewer HTTP requests. So, for example, if you have 6 javascript files it would be much quicker for you to join all the JavaScript together into one file and serve that instead. You can decrease the loading time further by minify your JavaScript, CSS and HTML. And also, by gzipping your page’s components and adding a far-future expires header can make your pages load faster as well.

However, doing all these manually is a pain. Aciddrop has set up a PHP script to automatically do them for you. On the test page the load time with the compressor turned on was generally below second, and without the compressor between 3-5 seconds. The Yahoo Yslow rating went from F(45) to A(97) as well.

Requirements: PHP 4+

JSLoader – Javascript Libraries on Demand

Posted · Category: Framework, LGPL License


JSLoader is a dead-simple, non-intrusive “Javascript-on-demand” packaging convention which helps developers and the internet community rapidly develop and prototype applications without the headache of figuring out the witches’ brew of files that need to be copied, included, etc. You do not need to download anything to use all the Javascript frameworks. it is because multiple sites will share this code the browser and proxy caches will help make things more efficient.

All Javascript Libraries are already installed on their server, so all you need to do is create a <script></script> tag with inside <noautolink> of your page and you should be able to load any of the available modules. Once you’ve loaded them, close the script tag out, and use a separate script block for using the API.

JSLoader supports many Javascript Framewroks. The following the an example of how to load a particular Javascript Library on your website / web application.

// Ext.js

// JQuery (no plugins yet…)

// Lightbox (for prototype/scriptaculous)

// Prototype.js
JSLoader.load(“ria”,”prototype”,”1.6.0-rc0″);// Scriptaculous
