[chandler update] Scooby – the chandler web-browser interface


The other big news today at the Chandler update is that OSAF is planning to build a web-browser interface for Chandler functionality. This project is being called Scooby. The slides Mitch used to talk about it are here.

The idea is that instead of creating a separate version of the desktop Chandler app to support nomadic usage, users could get at calendaring and other Chandler items that reside on a Cosmo server from a browser.

The Scooby software would be something that runs on a web application server (in this case Tomcat) that talks to a Cosmo server on one side, and the web browser on the other.

This is still at a very early stage – I believe Mitch characterized it as “proto-molecular”. Stay tuned for further developments..
