Features

React/Emoji’s for newsfeed

With this new feature, users are given the power to express themselves and react to the newsfeed posts. We have added human emotions to your activity stream with this brand new feature. Whether you are happy, sad or angry, we have an emoji for every reaction.

Upload and play videos in the app from the device

Earlier it was only possible to stream videos inside the app through external links via YouTube and Facebook. From this release onwards, you can upload and play videos native to your device. We have also provided validation for the size of the video to be uploaded inside the app. If the video size is large, the video will be compressed and then uploaded to the server.

Experimenting with the Easysocial Lite App!

Experimenting-with-the-Easysocial-Lite-App

When analysing customer feedback, blog comments and through discussions with Mark from Stackideas we realised that the feature gap between the site and the app is a deal breaker for some of our clients. While for the existing Easysocial app we will continue with the philosophy of pushing in only mobile relevant features, we have been toying with the idea of a parallel semi-web app.

The new approach is not simply about wrapping the web URL in a hybrid app. The idea is to creatively use some of the native features to improve the web experience. At this point we are experimenting with the footer and navbar being rendered by the app, and the content within coming straight from your website. In spite of the approach, the app will be "navigation aware" which will also mean that push notifications with deep links will work. The fact that people name their menus differently will make this a little tricky, but we are already exploring ways to overcome this. 

At this point, we're only in the POC stage so we don't have any more information about dates and roadmap. However we're quite certain that this approach will help us quicken the pace to a considerable extent, since we do not need to deal with APIs and re-building the features. 

Let me leave you with a few screenshots of the new app ! Stay tuned for more :)

 

The development of the existing Easysocial app will of course continue. We will in fact make a minor release very soon, before moving into a new version to add more features.

Google Docs to Joomla Addon - Hackathon Updates !

Google Docs to Joomla Addon - Hackathon Updates !

The last Saturday was one like any other working Saturday at the Tekdi offices - filled with learning, fun and exciting hackathons. This week we collaborated with members from various teams like Techjoomla as well as the Enterprise Joomla development team to hack together a proof of concept Google Docs application that would allow publishing content easily from a Google Document to Joomla using REST APIs. 

Since the Appcarvers team already has 'The Blog App' and APIs ready on our github for both Joomla core and EasyBlog, this was a perfect task for us to pick up. While there is still a long way to go, we were successful in showcasing a basic addon that allows text publishing in a matter of 3-4 hours !
