I got to know Vue.js about two months ago and was greatly impressed by the quality of its guide and API. Imagine. There is one guy alone maintaining the framework and he manages to keep an up-to-date documentation. Since then, he has got to search for more people, and the team is increasing in size, but very slowly. So, seduced by the way the documentation is clearly written and easy to understand, I decided to try Vue.js on a teamwork I had to do for a company as part of my studies. I had to develop a dashboard displaying data and charts when clicking on points on a map. Before the dashboard I first had to process 100GB of data to get only the interesting information and to aggregate this information into one simple PostgreSQL database (the final data was no more than 25MB afterwards). This was also an incredible work, but I won't talk about it in this post.
We are hard working on Qowala! Together with the development of the app, there is also a lot of work on the design-side and I want to tell you how we made our logo. After three weeks of work, Antoine Beauvillain has delivered to us a great logo after taking into consideration all the inputs of the team. I think you will like it, and that's only the beginning of the new visual identity of Qowala.
If you were missing some interactions in the previous beta, you can now get live notifications from Twitter directly in Qowala. Until now, we were one developer and one UX designer working on making Qowala live a great social network dashboard, but now two more people joined the project!
The Open Source Twitter dashboard Qowala live got a new release, improving a lot of things since last time I spoke about it and it is only the beginning!
Since the v0.2, the self-hostable Twitter dashboard KoalasLiveTweet can now do a little more. I got delayed in the development of this version 0.3, but I'm glad to see the application now performing as a minimal Twitter dashboard.
Browsing news article, I got to discover an open source collaboration platform called PEPS. It challenges Google Apps and Dropbox solutions by offering a team's members the ability to communicate and to share files between each other. And it's only the beginning !
For a school project, I began to develop a Twitter dashboard to track hashtags and decided to continue afterward. Now I'm developing my own Twitter web-client because I was not satisfied with those already available.
