After 12 months of development I am really happy to announce, a platform to create your custom wedding website. It is being developed with Rails 3.2 and mongodb and runs on Amazon EC2 and Cloudfront. Here is what I am excited about:

  • The available wedding themes are illustrative and fresh, not too traditional.
  • The user interface is very modern, a lot of drag and drop and inplace editing, no need to switch to preview mode all the time because you instantly see how your page looks like.
  • It uses the approach 'less is more' when it comes to features. No 'feature jungle' as on comparable websites.
Please give it a try yourself or pass on the link if you know someone who gets married. I'm also happy to discuss technology topics regarding the platform.

Safari 6 - what a disappointment

I recently upgraded to Safari 6. I was hoping for another Apple improvement, but I can't believe what Apple did to Safari. The unified addressbar / searchbar is just annoying and the new WebInspector is  a mess and just unusable. First, I decided to just give it a try for a couple of days, but it didn't help. Safari was my favourite browser to develop and test webapps for the last two years, but now I will switch back to good old Firefox. Not a nice job, Apple.
