New "made with Rails" site launched: www.invitika.com


#1

We’ve finally finished up work on our application and are now beginning
our beta. The site (SMS+mobile blogging+event planning+LBS+photos) is
built using 100% Ruby on Rails. Many thanks to all the people who
answered questions over the months on this list. Our experience with
Rails was overwhelmingly positive!

We’d love to hear any feedback you might have: http://www.invitika.com

Thanks again,

It would be good to have Demo link that walks a user thorough what your
site is about.

This is incredibly cool and looks like something I’ll actually use.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks very much! We’re still very much in Beta, so go easy on us, but
please let us know what you like and don’t like – being that we’re a
small company, we’re going to go the extra mile to be as responsive and
friendly as we can.

Best regards,

If you click on the four “marketing” pictures on the front page, you’ll
get other pages that explain more in detail how things work with more
pictures. Or did you see that and think it needs more?

Many thanks for taking the time to look!

There’s an optional Java midlet component to the application. Rails made
it super easy to use the same controller actions with XML views to send
XML to the phone.

but
didn’t have time to look further.

Likin’ it. It looks like a really useful application. Does it work for
old-style phones too (ie, the option of being purely SMS based)?

I can’t really handle the white on yellow though.

Yeah, it works fine with just SMS, with optional WAP links if your phone
can browse the web.

You’re the second person to say that…I guess I need to calibrate my
monitor, I was trying for white on orange! Perhaps a few minor tweaks to
CSS would render it more visually palatable…

Thanks for checking it out.

Looks white on orange with my LCD monitor.

I’m working with an LCD too, maybe that’s the problem. Good old color
fidelity on the web……

White on orange would be ok. Making orange pages is quite a bold thing
to do, but if you get it right, it can look really good.

I prefer to play it safe and just use black on white for all large
areas of text, then have any colours around it.

Let us know if you update stuff, and I’ll go and have a gander, then
give you my opinion.
