SaneBull: Ajax Finance Portal Prototype

Category: Showcase

The ideAjax group has put together a technology showcase that uses Ajax and Java to create a financial portal.

This is a single page application and the home page is really just this:

  1. < !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
  3. <html>
  4. <head>
  5.     <title>Web 2.0 - SaneBull Market Monitor</title>
  6.     <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
  7.     <link href="css/index.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
  8.     <link href="css/themes/alphacube.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
  9.     <link href="css/themes/default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
  10.     <link href="css/dtree.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
  11.     <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
  12.     <script type="text/javascript">
  13.         _uacct = "UA-84011-5";
  14.         urchinTracker();
  15.     </script>
  16.     <script src="js/import/dtree.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  17.     <script src="js/import/prototype.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  18.     <script src="js/import/scriptaculous.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  19.     <script src="js/import/window.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  20.     <script src="js/sanebull.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  21. </meta></head>
  22. <body>
  23.     <div id="container"></div>
  24. </body>
  25. </html>

The bulk of the application is actually housed in sanbull.js

What’s the intial payload for all the JS? I’ve noticed that with dojo, just the base framework is 100k+, not to mention any cutom code you write for your application…

[…] My friends did it again… We are now featured on Techcrunch and as my bloglines subscription to Ajaxian pointed out today, we’re also featured on Ajaxian. Analytics shows hits in four digit range. The great thing about it is that IdeaJax and SinkMyShip are also targeted. We’ve got some offers already. We are sifting through them right now. Sanebull started with a small inconvenience and later an idea from Sam who was having difficulty using Yahoo Finance. He got together with Felix and wrote this neat web application in two days. Imagine what they can do with more time and more inspiration!!! Obviously we’ve brainstormed quite a bit on where we’re going with this and where we want to end up. We definitely do not see our source of income coming from ads like we did with SinkMyShip. Eventhough SMS is paying for itself, it is still not nearly enough to quit our day jobs. Hopefully SaneBull will turn up to be something more than just a weekend project. We’ve met last night to jot down a few ideas with what we’re doing next and unfortunately we have nada. I personally have a few things in mind but I didn’t “buy” Fix and Sam yet. Now a few words about IdeaJax. This is will the permanent blog area for all our blog entries. I’m assuming there will be alot of blogging to do with three current sites available and potentially a few more coming pretty soon depending on our inspiration. I see this blog as having a wide range of topics such as our projects and current developments and also other topics like reviews for books and gadgets. Our team is so diverse that we all have our own unique interests. I personally would like to put it on paper. Maybe I can inspire my friends to do the same. That’s it for now. Stay tuned for the updates. […]

Kudos to those guys — I thinks it’s useful.
What I don’t like is the common practice of making everything fiddly, too small and with huge amounts of unused space. Dammit, spread the text laterally and don’t make me always have to scroll and click around to get what want.

Now there is a site that is realy going to suck for search engine placment!!!

This should be a lesson on how Ajax should NOT be used in regards to SEO!!

Comment by Alex — July 20, 2006

Could have provided some sort of activity indicator, especially when retriving the feeds. Usefull piece of Ajax though.

Comment by Saurabh — July 21, 2006

For me this didn’t work as per the screenshot in FireFox 1.5 (WinXP).

IE displays things as per the screenshot. FireFox is missing the ‘window’ borders and controls (minimise, maximise, close).

The idea is nice but it’s a poor example of well used Ajax.
