We're closing up 2011, of course cramming all the leftover work into one or two weeks, and with that I wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy HandyMan! Yes, you read that right and I (think) I spelled that right. Today - Christmas 2011, December 25th, 2011 - sees the release of HandyMan, the Mobile Manager for MODX all of you have been waiting for.
(At least - if I can drag myself away from all the Christmas celebrations for just a few minutes to upload the package to the Repository. This post was written a few days ago and I just told it to publish itself on December 25th cause, well, MODX can.)
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays
Let's get this out of the way. 2011 was a great year for me personally, in which I dropped out of school and landed into this MODX world full of fascinating development projects, and the prospect of doing something I actually seem to like for a living! With over 25 clients in the first year of business I don't think I did too bad either!
I hope your year has been equally exciting, and that there's many interesting things on the shelve, waiting to be dusted off and executed. In memory of the one and only Steve Jobs, I hope we can make 2012 the best year yet.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
Back to.. HandyMan!
Right - HandyMan. That rock-solid jQuery Mobile foundation, with some MODX love sprinkled on top. Or based on the time it took to get this ready for a public release - nearly nine months - a helluva lot MODX! HandyMan allows you to manage your MODX content using virtually any mobile device, including tablets, using a stripped down, mobile optimized UI.
For those who are unfamiliar with it, and don't understand what I'm so excited about - you should check out the following Promo video made by Jared Loman:
That probably told you very little new information.. but c'mon - it had to make you grin right? It's Christmas! :D If you really want more in depth information of what HandyMan is, head over to this eight minute screencast, also by the one and only Jared Loman.
But hey.. why not just download the package, and get it up on your own site to start managing your content from a mobile device?
More information on HandyMan can be found on its dedicated site: MODX Mobile.
