The EasySocial App. The Story so far and the road ahead...

Developing mobile apps comes with its own set of challenges. One of the key ones especially when developing apps with a CMS backend is managing the flexibility and in terms of features and configuration that CMS users come to get used to over the years.

Web services are the next key component of the App stack. These are super critical and developing these accurately keeping in mind the impact of all minute extension level configurations needs the team to have in depth knowledge of the extension in question. With a back end extension like EasySocial there are even more variables to this equation like User privacy and preferences.

Delivering updates to customers in the form of customized builds is the next challenge. While we provide source code on demand to subscribers of the core app code, most of our current customers are non developers and need support from us in compiling their builds every time we release a new update. To counter this we have achieved a decent level of automation which allows us to generate customer builds much faster now. However the goal for us on this is to develop an interface that allows customers to do basic customization and generate builds on their own.

JUnite Update : Where are we going with JUnite from here ?

JUnite Update : Where are we going with JUnite from here ?

JUnite started as a Meta package for bundling all our Joomla related applications into one test package. At the last update JUnite allowed you to test EasySocial, EasyBlog and JGive.

Of these JGive was an alpha release with only campaign browsing features. As of now the development of the jGive App in its current form (as an app for donors/front end users) has been halted. We will however definitely consider continuing it in the future if there is enough demand. An app for campaign owners is however under consideration as of now. If this is of interest for you, do post in the comments section.
