The Most Important OpenLaszlo Application?

January 19th, 2010 · No Comments

I just discovered PuzzlePixies.com, which is arguably one of the most valuable and important OpenLaszlo applications I’ve seen.

PuzzlePixies.com is a children’s educational site. It’s not actually a single OpenLaszlo app, but lots of little games for different age groups.

I’ve seen some of these games before (e.g. the classic card matching memory game). But there’s something about the colors and simple graphics that seemed to appeal to my 3-year-old son immediately. Maybe it’s the fact that a child’s voice introduces each game and tells you if you got the right answer?

The whole site is free. If you have kids, check it out!

MobileDataNow is Open Source

January 15th, 2010 · No Comments

MobileDataNow, a product that I’ve blogged about before, is now an open-source project. MobileDataNow started as a proprietary offering from FireTrust, and some time ago (late 2008/early 2009) was made available to the public. The source is available on Google Code.

MobileDataNow uses an OpenLaszlo front-end to allow you to configure data stores and mobile notifications. From the docs, it looks like it was upgraded to some edition of OL4.

November OpenLaszlo Newsletter

December 3rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

The November issue of the OpenLaszlo <view> newsletter is out. It’s available as a PDF. This issue covers some new CSS functionality, beyond what was mentioned in my post on CSS in OpenLaszlo.

In case you missed it, the October edition is still available, which covers built-in dropshadow functionality in OpenLaszlo. Check out Raju’s blog for a demo of this feature.
