Objectwheel related to Javafx Community
Its come to my attention that I’m not sharing enough about #objectwheel with the Javafx community and I’m sorry. Having a startup in stealth mode makes it very difficult to share everything but I am starting to tell more. I just applied for a #javaone session talk and its getting closer every day to a public announcement. My company needs developers to be involved. In order to succeed this is a must. Here is the short Synopsis regarding Objectwheel. ——– Objectwheel is a new user definable social media platform & rapid development framework that includes search and a browser that’s based on Javafx. The platform uses intelligent templates to create content that can be shared via social media using a client app or URL load. Inside our screen designer end users or programmers drag and drop rich controls and fields onto a blank template and create powerful GUI’s. Our primary goal is to create a new Social Media platform that encourages interaction & data sharing between users. We also plan on incorporating W3C Semantic web intelligence into everything that touches Objectwheel. The platform is private and secure and runs as a client or app not a website— Ok, so your a developer right? Who cares? First let me say that our Screen Designer is already much more powerful than Scene Builder in many ways. Scene Builder is definitely more polished and I can’t wait for it to be open sourced (its not already right?) And we have taken into account 2013 Real World issues into building our new social media platform. Here is a screen shot.
Obviously this looks like a mess but it shows CSS is being used and it shows a complicated control that has been dragged and dropped onto a screen. A record Button starts the mic recording and stores the information to a database. We are adding new controls daily to this Screen Designer along with all of the obvious features we need like Alignment and a CSS editor, custom color picker, etc. Within a couple of days I’ll have a website (Webview) component that allows you to search the web and Grab a site and then have a dynamic website on a Screen. This isn’t a screen shot of a website inside our screen designer, this is an actual website that can be manipulated resized, and dragged and dropped. But it doesn’t stop there. Everything that makes up Objectwheel is a template. And the templates can be shared. They can also be dragged and dropped. We also know about the bookmarks and History in your browser so that information can be pulled from a List Box Control. I’m really hopeful that I can learn more about how Gerrit Grunwald @hansolo_ builds his custom controls and be able to drag and drop one of these components onto our Screen. Here are some LCD temperature controls he put in a Real World Rasberri Pi demo. I can just imagine having powerful controls like this as part of our Screen Designer. So the big question comes down to why? What exactly does this have to do with the developer community? Objectwheel plans on using the developer community to create some really important content and controls that are then used within the platform. The platform is a Social Media ENGINE that allows people to share content that has a lot more power and meaning because underneath everything is intelligence. I know your probably confused right now, and I’m sorry. More will come. But this is a sneak peak. Wish us luck and send your Angel Investor Friends our way. With Search, Social Media, and B2B I think we are talking about a 100 billion dollar industry. We are not trying to replace your favorite social media platform but just give it more power. Just like Tweetdeck gave twitter users more power. Mike Tallent CEO Objectwheel
