New CWAB Release (v1.5)

Happy new year!

We are pleased to announce the release of version 1.5 of the CWAB platform. This release includes bug fixes and some product improvements.


The most important and exciting news in this release is the introduction of visual UI driven development. In the future, using the CWAB platform to build applications would be a process of building by using prebuilt UI components and interacting with customization logic. The possibilities with this approach are quite attractive.


This release includes the launch of our UI Parts stores. UI Parts are pre-built UI components that may also have back-end logic attached to them. The components would be built to integrate into CWAB applications and allows users to quickly compose highly sophisticated applications with minimal effort. The UI Parts store is fully integrated into the CWAB environment.


Going along with the introduction of the UI Parts store is the UI builder now included in CWAB. This is a drag-n-drop enabled facility for building web applications. It can supports any UI framework including popular frameworks like bootstrap, ionic and foundation. 

The current release of CWAB's UI building capabilities is in alpha status and we look forward to getting user feedback as we continue to build on it.

The feds need to shutdown the bitcoin scam now.

I live in Baltimore, let's say I have some hypothetical friends who are always looking for a good hustle.

Now imagine if my friends got together for a new get-rich-quick-scheme, the scheme is very simple. They invent something called cracken (bitcoins) that they start selling on a few blocks in Hamsterdam.

The way you get crackens is to do laps around the blocks in Hamsterdam. Initially when the scheme was setup, you could get a whole lot of crackens by merely doing a few strolls around the block. Needless to say my friends made out like bandits, since, after all they created the scheme and could take advantage of the first-come-first-serve rules.

Unfortunately for the rest of the hood, the number of laps required to get the same number of crackens keeps going up and after a while even the fittest folks in the neighborhood cannot do the lapse required to earn crackens.

Cracken mania takes hold and infects the whole city. Those with crackens start trading these crackens for exor…

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…

Configuring Kubernetes with Solvent

We've recently been making the rounds showing how Solvent can help with tackling complex configurations often expressed in JSON or YAML.

Kubernetes and other solutions that rely heavily on declarative configurations are ideal candidates for Solvent.
