Meeting today

Filed under: by Brendon Upson on 08:37

I'm meeting today with a company developing some software to run on Tornado server. I really enjoy learning about other people's businesses and the unique challenges they face. Should be fun!

A customer asked us a few weeks ago about a web based spell checker. Yesterday I stumbled across Jazzy which looks to be the goods. It is a basic API that will require some heavy (ajax) wrapping to make it functional. It's an interesting project and one I am sure we will use again. We plan to bundle it into a single .pma file and reference it from other applications.

Next week is a long earned break. Natasha and I will be in Thailand for a week to relax and recharge. Can't wait! 


  1. I came across Jazzy as well and got it working for Domino - this was some 6 months ago I think.

    For ie browsers there is a plug in iespell which works really really well!

    I dont understand why the web spell check functionality they have in the mail database is not available for all to use!

  2. I don't want to go with iespell as it's IE only and all client side so the reliance on a certain configuration is too high. My plan is a central spellchecker app that I can easily hook up to all apps.
