Web App that I am Working On

Posted on 22 February 2012

I decided not too long ago that I would try and help out my mum and learn some new skills by making a (primarily client-side) web app to handle finances for vending machine companies or owners. I am calling it Vendotron and it is made using the standard HTML5 and CSS3 graphical goodies, along with backbone.js (and require.js) to power it. I haven’t done much javascript apart from some jQuery here and there to spice up pages, so it has been interesting so far.

As you can see in the picture above, I have already got a nice design down. I have also implemented adding vending machines to your inventory, but the rest is still in progress (also, there is no persistence yet). It is completely open source, but I will probably charge for use of it on my servers (standard SaaS deal).

You can see what I have in action and check out the source. Let me know if you have any suggestions (design or code wise), or if you want to help me out!
