We are building a media browser web app in Atlas/Cappucino as the front end for an existing database system. ? See the screen captures in the details section below for look at the demo of the system, in Cappucino, as well as deliverables information.
Please see the snapshot (two sizes) in the attached .zip file for a screenshot of the existing Cappucino/Objective-J demo application.
The free-floating palettes in the upper left allow the user to drop media (images, PDFs, video) into the persistent 'dock' spaces at the bottom of the screen. ? The empty panel at the upper right of the screen is a Twitter-like live chat window.
The final deliverable is a functioning Atlas/Cappucino/Objective-J web app, with the following interim milestones:
- UI development, using an existing proof-of-concept app as a basis.
-? Create Cappuccino classes for handling media display/playback. ? This would involve building Atlas elements that function like 'Image View', but support the following media types:
? * streaming .wmv video
? * QuickTime .mov video
? * .pdf document display
? * MS Office native documents (optional)
- Integration with our existing SQL database system. ? (Essentially, the Cappucino app needs to send and receive defined strings to/from the existing PHP code. ? Integration will be assisted on our end.)
- Testing and optimization, as needed.
