The project goal was to create a Joomla extension which offers the functionalities of an upload tool plus the ability to convert the files automatically to predefined file formats. So images get converted to JPEG, videos to FLV and all Word and Excel files to PDF.
The video upload provides some additional features like thumbnail creation, merging a new audio file with the video, aspect selection and extraction of a specific scene (offset and duration).
After uploading the assets they can be added to articles via the AssetCenter’s asset selector located in the rich text editor toolbar. The assets are then available for preview and download at the end of the article.
The extension was written in PHP and uses FFmpeg for the video conversion, OpenOffice for the document conversion and gdlib for the image conversion. The asset details are kept in a MySQL database.
That’s it so far about this project. There is no link available as it’s an extension for admin users only. I’m sorry!
This is the current microsite of the Swiss Cesar company. It’s the online version of the “Small is beautiful” booklet which shows the dog owners where are the best places to go out for a walk with their furry friend. The users are invited to share their own best places with other users. The tips will then be shown on a map (Google Maps) of Switzerland. My part in this project was the backend development. This time the underlying framework was CodeIgniter. That’s a light-weight PHP framework which does a quite good job for this purpose. There is nothing special about this microsite. The interface between Flash and the backend consists of pure XML and POST requests. The Flash application was programed by Benjamin Herholz (bherholz.com). Good job by the way! The responsible web agency was Assai Dialog + Digital (my current employer).
This was my first project in connection with Flash at .nemos GmbH. The backend was realized with the in-house CMS called ‘Butler’. The Flash part was done by Peter Cicman (an employee of divio.ch).
I was involved in this project when I was employed at .nemos GmbH. I was responsible for the backend (CMS) and the XML output for the flash application. The backend was realized with the in-house CMS called ‘Butler’. It was quite complicated but interesting to create such a complex application since everything had to be dynamically.
