New foldier beta 2.28

foldier beta 2.28

Welcome back again to another release of foldier.
As usual we like to give you here a quick overview of what is new in this latest release. The following is just is a quick overview, we will follow up later with more detailed posts on every single new feature.

API

We introduce in this release our first API to access foldier from other web application. We have implemented a simple REST API with full OAuth protocol authorization pipeline. We also created a Wiki Site dedicated to the documentation of the API (http://wiki.foldier.net).

Improved Search Engine

A very important component of the foldier infrastructure is its search engine. Everything in foldier is organized using searches. We improved our engine to search inside the aggregated item descriptions. This results in better categorization for items matching keywords specified in your sPressions.

New Home Page

We moved the community all the way to the front. The new home page now has featured sthe most popular and most recent Pressions. From the home page visitors can now search for topic or for users. Check it out here!

Better foldier link bar

Links broadcasted to the followers now feature a much improved toolbar. The toolbar allows the visitor to access simple foldier features like rating and comments as well as linking the web page to other content posted by the same foldier user.

Better performance

We added to this release more aggressive code optimization and better caching for content. In our tests some browsing operation have seen speed improvements up to 50%.

Full integration with Google Docs

Now, once you connect your Google Docs account you can create new document and edit existing one directly from within foldier. Also publishing of Google Docs have been simplified. Now you can write your own original content using the powerful features of Google online editors and post this content in your own sPression with simple Drag & Drop.

This post was original written in Google Docs and published here.

Welcome to you and welcome foldier.

The BETA is finally up and running. We at foldier hope you will find this tool useful and interesting. This is just the beginning, the debut of the foundation of a new system aimed at integrating web-services and the Internet platform to the advantage of the end user.

The Internet represents the ultimate operating platform. Since there are plenty of interesting Internet applications created every day, what we really need is a way to organize ourselves by capturing references to all our content in one “place.”

And we must be able to access and share our content quickly, however much we generate. Most of all, as our content and the underlying data expand, they must be completely searchable.

This is why we invented this tool.

foldier links services and applications organically, over the Web, so that people can use them, and the Internet, in the way that suits them best.

We hope you enjoy it.

Michele
