Shutterborg Tee Shirts


For a limited time, we're going to have Shutterborg tee shirts available through Zazzle. You can customize your shirt if you like, but we think it's pretty funny already:

Building on a Framework: Sitemappr


Sitemappr is a new app we just developed that checks the PageRank values of every URL in an XML sitemap. It's built on the same framework as Shutterborg, so we would love to have your thoughts on the initial release.

It's a free web app, available here: Sitemappr

Shutterborg has a very open Plug-in API, and we're looking to allow users to create their own plug-ins. Before we go about creating a plugin database and editor, we would like your input on what you might be interested in doing with Shutterborg. Some of our ideas so far:
  • file browser / FTP client
  • image picker that uses Apache directory listings to navigate the server without the use of server-side scripts
  • embedded image editor/cropper using either canvas or the DOM
  • Are they good ideas? Maybe - but you probably have better ones. It's those ideas we would be thrilled to hear about in the comments, or feel free so send us an email at:

And So it Begins


As has been the intent for some time, Shutterborg is finally getting its own Blog. Since we have already developed a Content Management System that uses the editor component to create and manage live websites, it was a natural step to use that system help stay in touch with Shutterborg users. For an idea of what kind of posts will be appearing here on a regular basis, here is a quick rundown of what new things we are planning for the next release.

First off, Shutterborg will be getting FTP support. Why? What could be useful about that? We'll let you decide, but if you're currently using Dreamweaver or (heaven forbid) a Microsoft product that shall remain nameless (ms publisher), you already know why you need it. By adding FTP support to our editor, we are creating a replacement for desktop website publishing products. Since Shutterborg can already edit content, and websites should be themed using external CSS stylesheets (which we fully support), using Shutterborg to maintain a static website will be much easier when you can save directly back to your web server.

Secondly, it is a busy time here at developIT, with a bunch of new projects nearing completion - products like amoebaOS and Darkroom Gallery (link coming soon). So you might find a few references to those launches here on the Shutterborg blog.

Since time is always a concern in the internet industry, we will be keeping the updates brief yet highly informative (or at the very least, humorus). That's it for the first post, hopefully you'll stick around for the rest.
