First project on OpenNTF – Bildr

There is a natural discussion going around about the OpenSource community for Lotus Notes Domino.

I have spreaded out my opinions about the state of OpenNTF (read: you could summarize it as: great job what the IBM-ers done so far, although I would have expected something more resources from their company) several times.

Nevertheless I am thankful to the people who have contributed code on OpenNTF and from I have learned quiet a lot.

I guess the best way to show my gratitude and my opinion or reaction on the discussion on OpenSource for Notes/Domino would be by uploading some of my past work as a project.  Dare to share.

Since this is my first release ever on OpenNTF I hope I have selected all the correct options etcetera. Just uploading the information I believe the tool to manage projects on OpenNTF can use a revision too. Especially more ‘collaborative’ applications are difficult to place under the correct category.

Anyway, my project is called Bildr, an application which allows an easy way to upload, resize multiple photos at once. The photos can be navigated via several options in the browser. Visitors can leave comments on photos.

The application is pretty much ‘domino development in the pre-xpages days’ spiced up with some MooTools and Lightbox stuff. I guess the next logical step for the application will be to XPage enable it.

Hopefully this action will lead to a continuous sharing of applications on OpenNTF. Have a nice weekend!
