Uizard – a web mashup generator written in YUI

<>p>Oops! This post got UIzard off the web as the server has 1000 hits a day. It should be back up later. If someone can offer hosting for it, we’re happy to forward you to the developers.

The Korean developer community is not that known to people in the west it seems. Language barriers make it hard to communicate and the web design is very different to what we do here. Being lucky enough to work with developers world-wide in the same company I just got reminded of a tool that was built for the Korea Mashup challenge called Uizard.

UIzard

Uizard allows you to create the UI for a web mashup in a full visual interface. It is like Pipes meets Dreamweaver! The interface of UIzard is fullly created in YUI, you can choose to build either a simple web-app or Google Widgets or Mobile apps. The whole editor is open source and they’re looking for more participants.

Talking about Language Barrier… I bet it’s a 503 error we’re hitting into… but Google Translate ain’t coming in handy for Korean :-/

Would love to see this working though :-)

Oh dear, their server is down because of the traffic.

Comment by Chris Heilmann — May 13, 2009

Noticed their server cannot handle hits. I can host if interested.

UIzard was open temporally. http://uizard.jemr.net

I hate everything about these so-called “mashups”, especially the name.

Comment by Darkimmortal — May 13, 2009

Looks cool – wish we could get at it.

Is this similar to MS Popfly? ( http://www.popfly.com/ )

Took a long time to load.
Impressive UI, I especially like the code editor. But you can feel it’s a beta.
I figured out why it took long to load, the page is 1,8 MB og data even with gzipped components.
There are 160.000 lines of javascript (over 5 million chars)
Thats….. well lets call it “impressive”

Wait so now a web application is a mashup? (ugh, I hate that word.) Confusing post title is confusing.

Anyway, I’d be willing to host this on my dedicated server.

Comment by Darkimmortal — May 13, 2009

I’d be happy to host as well, if they’re interested.

Try this one : http://www.linb.net/VisualJS/UIBuilder.html

I can help with the static file hosting. I own TinyCDN.com and dont mind setting up an account for them. CDN + Gzip should help.

Hi there~
I am the developer of UIzard…
Thanks for your interests!
I am just a student… 24 years old…
I do hope to learn and try more things
and I don’t speak english that well…
Though I have many ideas, it is hard to make them real by myself
UIzard is just an experimental version, now…
Though your interest imposed a heavy burden on me,
from now on, I would use that burden as the source and motivation of my work
I would like to share UIzard with people around world,
and wish this tool to be a standard development tool in rapidly growing Internet environment
For that, I may need help from many talented men

I’ll do my best.
Thank you

Please contact me for hosting. I would be more than happy to provide some good reliable hosting :)

Mmmm, pressed Submit too quickly. Just forward my email address to XeNoz so he can contact me.

This is exactly the kind of amazing thing that people cook up when we really get in sharing mode… someone uses an open API to develop an open product that lets people mash together other open APIs into other products!

“Metadevelopment?”

This makes me feel even more critical of the problems described in the PhoneGap entry post. So many of our best products and experiences come from sharing, so why would a company who profits from the mass sharing of relatively inexpensive apps be so opposed to allowing someone to produce a product born out of that mentality?
