Easy web application and widget creation with zembly

June 6, 2008

Our good friends at zembly have launched the beta of their service today and we’re proud to announce that Dapper and zembly are partners.  According to their website:

“With zembly, you easily create and host social applications of all shapes and sizes, targeting the most popular social platforms on the web. Using just your browser and your creativity, and working collaboratively with others, you create and publish Facebook apps, OpenSocial apps, meebo apps, iPhone apps, Google Gadgets, embeddable widgets, and other social applications.”

From that description alone, it’s fairly obvious how you could use Dapper and zembly together to create great web applications and widgets.  The zembly folks have built in support for using Dapps right within their app and it’s very cool what you can do.  So you can use Dapper to create feeds for any website, and then you can go use those feeds within your code inside zembly.  Very cool.

zembly is truly disruptive. It has the potential to fundamentally change the way developers create portable web applications and widgets. Its collaborative approach, emphasis on reuse of common code, and web-based interface dramatically reduce the barrier for developers to implement and realize their creative ideas. We’re excited that you, the users of Dapper, can now take the Dapps you create and immediately put them to use in new ways with minimal effort using zembly

Go to zembly’s website to apply for an invite into the beta.  If you create things using the service and are making use of Dapps, post it here or let us know by email.

Deki Wiki Incorporates Support for Dapper

January 7, 2008

Deki Wiki, pretty much the coolest wiki out there just released version 1.8.3 which incorporates support for Dapper. Effectively, this now means you can bring any content from the web into your wiki! The best way to understand its power is probably to check out Aaron’s screencast demonstrating the new Dapper extension.

The new release is getting lots of great attention all over the web: RWW, Social Glass, Computer World, Mashable, and more.

Thanks to Aaron, Steve, and the Deki Wiki team for bringing such excellent functionality to the open source wiki world.

If you build something cool using Deki Wiki and Dapper, please let us know (and if you’re in the Bay Area, come present it at DapperCamp).
