App idea to learn new code

Update: March 2014:

  • this was created in Nov-Dec 2013 and updated some in early 2014.
  • it's called Kinglet, running at Soupmode.com.
  • it's API-driven, using REST and JSON.
  • currently, the API piece is written in Perl.
  • currently, the 'client' piece is also written in Perl, and it executes on the same server but in its own directory.
  • currently, the client side uses JavaScript from Mean Menu and Minified.js. No Angular.js nor Bootstrap.js.
  • #todo - plan to create server-side client codebase in Node.JS.
  • #todo - may attempt to create a single page application (SPA) version of the client where the entire app for the user executes in the browser and uses Angular.js or Backbone. js or something else.
  • #todo - maybe in 2014, I'll attempt to create a client app in Objective C for iOS.
