My new Drupal 3D product...

It is a while I am working on a new product, which will be a 3d web site builder, using Away3d as its 3d engine, and some other Drupal modules to do the job.

The main concept is not something new, using services and amfphp modules to communicate with flash/flex, googling around provide you with many useful informations and even good tutorials around the matter.
There are a couple of other modules I am using, here is the list:

  1. amfphp
  2. cck
  3. filefield
  4. imagecache
  5. imagefield
  6. nodehierarchy
  7. services
  8. swfaddress
  9. token
Plus a module called "D3D", which will handle 3d information on any content type you may want on the Drupal side.
Yet another application, which will be a flex app will be used for administration...
As soon as there is a demonstration site I will provide the link, this will be a commercial product, I am planning to release in 5-6 month.

Ajax in Joomla

We have started a new project on Joomla, it is all about Ajax in Joomla...
Right now page links are gone Ajax, just a proof of concept, there is some problems in IE, but FF is OK, we have chosen mootools for the Ajax part, as it seems to be used by Joomla core for the Ajax library...
I am thinking of openAjax Hub to be used in the project so that we may use any library in the project, like Rico and scriptaculous as well as any other developers consider.
Hmm... I should think of some Logo and design as well, any way I will continue the process and will post here :)
