The kind folks over at Big In Japan have graciously decided to Open Source the code they used to build their demo web sites. It's all Ruby on Rails code, and it's being released with a GPL license. The code trees being made available include:
- elfURL ~ URL Shortner
- FeedVault ~ OPML file storage
- FrankenFeed ~ RSS feed merger
- InstantFeed ~ RSS feeds via email
- QwikPing ~ Ping Server
- SocialMail ~ RSS via email
Very cool. I just love the Open Source community.
I have actually been writing some code of late, and it's great to have some reference code to check out. Not sure if I'm going to go with Ruby on Rails yet, however.
And, for the record. I have no idea if this is big in Japan.
