I took a small freelance job from a friend of mine. The job is a simple task: create a corporate site with standard CMS functionality. I decided to experiment with the idea of how what CMS development should look like in 2013.
I ditched the idea of using Drupal, WordPress, Joomla or other pre-coded systems for the reason that I didn't invested the massive amount of time to master them and I won't start it today.
What I will do is use my iScaffold project and generate the backend as usual. The fun part will be the administration part. The admins will be able to edit the text directly on the frontend side, like a live WYSIWYG editor. I know it is not new and been done before. I'll write a series of posts about how I'll implement it in a hopefully simple manner.
I watched Modul creating a beat and first I didn't understand what he does with the sliders, then I found another video from him where he shared that he used a "beatfader" created by Herrrmut in maxforlive. Since I use Reason all the time I was curious if I can recreate it with some dirty combinator programming. Finally I was able to make it.
This weekend I started implementing the playlist synchronization feature for CloudDeck. I'm just half way through, but it is still exciting and challenging to cover every small detail to make it work.
This screenshot just a working version, the sync process will be seamless, so you can publish your favourite music effortlessly.
Oh and I almost forget that I need to design the sharing site. Balsamiq mockups, here i come :)
