Introducing the Crudzilla Web Application Builder (CWAB) platform!

Today we introduce the Crudzilla Web Application Builder (CWAB) platform, a different and refreshing approach to web development tooling. We believe web development tools have hit an evolutionary dead-end and it is time to think afresh about what a modern web developer tool should be about. Should it be about clever tricks and an obsession with code manipulation features, or should it be about enabling the shipment of quality software products? We believe it should be about the latter.

Even as existing tools pay lip-service to helping developers build better software, they have often failed to address the most important mission of any tool, which is to boost productivity. When one takes a survey of the landscape for web development tools, it seems the biggest productivity features are still syntax highlighting and code completion, these innovations are almost 20 yrs old.

CWAB is based around simplicity of use and product delivery. If you care about shipping software, be it as an everyday activity at work or as a comprehensive delivery for a client, you'll appreciate what the CWAB platform has to offer.
We hope this is the start of a new and exciting era in web development tooling, enjoy!
Edmond Kemokai, Founder.

Managing configurations with object graphs

***
This post is basically a pitch I send to folks whom I think will be interested in a modern approach to configuration management. I am posting it here so I can refer people to it without sending them a long email.
***

One of the features of the Solvent (formerly HiveMind) platform is a smart object technology that solves the problem of dealing with hierarchical configuration information often represented in formats Like YAML,JSON, Java Properties,XML...etc

The smart object technology allows developers/users to directly construct object graphs of any complexity. Once you have the actual object graph you can reverse the process back to representation in any one of the formats mentioned above.


I have setup a demo instance for trying it out @ http://demo.crudzilla.com:7000

Login with login info I sent you.

Be nice, you have full system access :)

What happened to sharing work with other developers?

There was a time when you could create something interesting and post it to a forum with programmers and actually get people interested in what you have. These days it seems short of being blessed (exactly by whom, only god knows) on HackerNews there is little chance you can get anyone's attention.

It is difficult to say precisely what the issue is because it seems multifaceted. It appears a combination of the rise of GateKeepers, perhaps cynicism inspired by the rise of GateKeepers and just a general overload of information has coalesced into a very difficult situation for those of us still daring to create without a VC backed turbo to charge forward with.

Over the past 5-8 yrs I have become quite dishearten by this loss of a genuinely curios developer community, or maybe I am just an old (36) fart who's been left behind.

Even tenure in certain communities doesn't count for anything anymore. I have been a member of HackerNews for 8.5 yrs and have only had 3 or 4 of my po…

Say hello to Solvent

We've changed the name of the platform from HiveMind to Solvent. The idea behind the HiveMind name was that the platform is meant to rely on components built by developers across the web to enable the quick composition of web applications. 
HiveMind is not a bad name and in fact has proven to be quite catchy, however we think a more evocative name would work better. We've spent time toying around with different names, we were not interested in a meaningless word so the name needed to be a real word that has meaning that could be tied to what the platform is, it also needed to have a nice ring to it.
To that end, we settled on Solvent. The Wikipedia definition: 
A solvent (from the Latinsolvō, "loosen, untie, solve") is a substance that dissolves a solute (a chemically distinct liquid, solid or gas), resulting in a solution.
We think this fits nicely with the platform as one for helping businesses quickly develop software solutions to help with their business operation…
