MohsinHijazee's blog fr Loud Thinking I'm not lazy at writing neither I'm bad. But I do not have my personal blog! Because I wont be updating it much! Developing a REST API on top of MyOwnDB was our prime decision to make it integrate able to a number of products/services. And that way, we want to be the memory of Web 2.0! We've been working with the REST API for sometime now and it was a leap from a concept to its application to MyOwnDB within the Rails framework. We had to make many interesting design decisions and for that, I explored top ten REST API's available including Twiter, Google, Flicker and many more.<p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> dedomenon misc rails webservices Wed, 03 Dec 2008 19:32:17 +0000 MohsinHijazee 37 at A step forward We were looking at the engines plugin for a while and despite all the flame wars around it, Me and Raphael were somewhat convinced that it would be needed somehow in future. I kept trying installing it but failed. So a little context here, we ported our application from Rails 1.2 to Rails 2.02. And it was this version which we "freezed" under the vendor directory. And installing engines plugin on that version was failing. From my past development experiences, and from observing some colleagues for a while in my career, I've a nature of being very lean and mean about things.<p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> engines freezing rails rails Wed, 06 Aug 2008 12:16:58 +0000 MohsinHijazee 34 at YourOwnDB! Hello World! Well its not the usual hello world program but some blog entries might also start with this phrase! And if in doubt, this entry is the proof! We are working on MyOwnDB that's obvious! But title says YourOwnDB? No we are not renaming it at all, rather its to convey that if it is in your own lingo, its more yours! So actually I'm talking about the localization. I'd not rephrase all about the importance of localization of software especially if its the one like MyOwnDB. When we started with MyOwnDB, it was Rails 1.2 and there was no suitable localization solution around.<p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> globalite internationlization misc Rails localization Thu, 31 Jul 2008 15:30:32 +0000 MohsinHijazee 33 at
