Twiggler, a sample app for the LM Framework

Category: Showcase

David Semeria has been working on LM, another Ajax framework, for a number of years and has just announced it.

The first demo app is a highly customizable Twitter client, Twiggler, that runs in the browser.

Unfortunately nothing is public on the framework so we can’t see how it actually works. It looks kinda like Squeak or X from an interface perspective, and you can see an interesting designer view.

Thanks chaps, I’ve added a bit more info regarding the framework, and much more will be coming in the next few days.

I’m all for competition to drive innovation…but…the style reminds me of the Window 95 days. They seriously need a graphic artist (or a better one). Compare with ExtJS or Smartclient (and YUI to a certain degree) which have the same focus.

The interface burns my eyes!

I hope that’s not the default styling :)

AJAX and a Web 1.0 design (eewww multicoloured buttons) just don’t go together.
