Xinu – Dashboard for Webmasters

Category: Showcase

Update: Site owner Miguel says the site is down for the next few days while he upgrades to a new server.

Xinu aggregates content on anything and everything to do with your website. Type a URL in and several dozen XHR requests later, the page is populated with a screenshot, pagerank, Alexa rank, Digg tally, you name it. Seems to have been written by this Spanish-language blogger. (via TechCrunch).

One possible improvement would be adopting Unique URLs – I was unable to link directly to the Ajaxian stats shown above.

What a great idea. It’s nice to be able to see a whole heap of stats for your site. I also like that it allows you to create a PDF of the results – I think it would be better if the PDF were laid out in a two-column grid though.

Does it take forever to load for other people too? I got there after several minutes of waiting, and now I’m waiting again to go into English mode.

hi everybody,
i’m miquel the “experimental” programmer of xinu

i would to say sorry, because the service is down (for the elevated consumption of resources in the server)

in a few days the service back online in a new server

@Chris Norton: thx for request, good idea!! (i will make a page, of all petitions of people with their names, and you will be there :D )

@Scriptor: i’m sorry my host is dattatec is really cheap but also it’s really bad, the new server will be “servage”

thx again!!

Miguel, you might wish to consider multiplexing XHR requests to ease the load.

Awesome, really nice application. Thx for the link!

hi again ajaxians,

today i tried to tranferred the service to, but also the support has suspend my account for the high consumption

this is the info from today, that give me the support:
655.609 / MAX 400.000 requests
29.02 GB / MAX 120 GB bandwidth

one person in tech TechCrunch offer me a dedicated server but with ads

but i can’t accept because the problem will not solved

in google, yahoo, technorati api, has a query limit for IP, when the number of querys is over of the allowed
they return a error page and the service shows 0

thx for the support but i don’t know how i can continue the service, i’m not a company only a person and i some prices are really expensive for me

maybe the solution is to have more than one server and alternate the servers for check the results.. but i really don’t know how to do

what do you recommend?

I want to clarify that the person is not from TechCrunch staff

Comment by gafeman — July 16, 2007

i cant continue the project it’s to huge for me, maybe other people with much money can continue
