Rails Project

We are working on our first Rails project. Will update this post with more details as soon as we reach a stable release.

Wordpress as CMS

While searching for a CMS for a client website, we started experimenting with "Wordpress as a CMS". Though we have been using WP as a blogging tool for a long time now, it was the first time we considered it for as a pure CMS application.

Reading the various documents at WP codex site, we created some pages. Then we created the navigation menus. Everything we needed was easily available or needed just very little hacking.

And while working on the client's site, we decided it was time to move our own site (this site) to wordpress too. And voila, we have new website running on WP which provides all our static pages and the additional capability of business blogging. We hope it would prove to be an efficient tool to stay in touch with our clients.

Ecommerce with drupal

We are working on an ecommerce site running on drupal. It is a unique combination of blogging and selling. You can check it out at http://proxyretail.com .

We have modified drupal's ecommerce module to meet all the requirements of the site. The site has been integrated with Paypal and authorize.net for processing payments.

Drupal 4.7 beta 1 released

Drupal 4.7.0 beta1 has been released yesterday. WE have to port all our modules to the new version since there are a lot of changes in the core apis.

Stay tuned for information about releases.

Ajax development

We have been doing a lot of ajax development recently.

We have been developing ajax applications with xajax, the ajax library in php. Also we have been using ruby on rails, with the scriptaculous and prototype library.
