Just wanted to come back to this. I did use Freelanceswitch … no bueno. The guy totally screwed me over, took my deposit, and ran. I waited 3-4 weeks, no results. No call back, he pretty much disappeared.
Probably the last time I try and find a free lancer…
Something that no one really has out there is a good XMPP client that is easily integrated in to a website. Especially something like iJab, which has tons of potential, looks like it was ditched to the curb. With XMPP getting more and more evolved, I feel there is a huge need for an amazing XMPP web client that is fairly identical GTalk/Facebook, feature wise, and customizeable on the looks.
It should support private messaging, MUC sessions (large ones), status updates, and administrative features that allow admins to turn off features like avatars, registration (which would be handled by WP). But most of all, it should be elegant and AJAXy (or use meteorserver.org somehow? not sure :P)
I’m imagining a Facebook type bar at the bottom where private chats popup, but only if you add them as friends (like google chat allows you to). All of the excessive domain crap that XMPP displays would dissapear.. so a room name would not be firstname.lastname@example.org. It would simply be “name”. It should work with ejabberd, openfire, and whatever else server is out there.
Current crappy clients I have found that are hard to implement and that require a crap tone of rewrite that I am not capable of: iJab, Jappix, JWChat, XWChat – there’s a whole list somewhere but these are some of the most noticeable ones.
Anyone got any ideas/opinions about this? Is it doable? How long? How much, even?
You might have to see what we’re using it for, but imagine a page full of alerts and everything is AJAX , never have to refresh or change pages. The chat is all on one page, moveable, resizable, editing profile is easy, etc.
Skype vegim.begolli if anyone is capable of something like this or wants some more details.
Well well. That’s because I’m an idiot! My skype is vegim.begolli.
I apologize for that, but I have added you to GTalk. I actually went to that free lance website and found someone local, but still interested in one more person for jQuery stuff.
I’ve looked on oDesk, RentaCoder, and many other sites where people do tons of free lance work. I am stepping up and willing to pay someone some very good money for some good work.
I need someone that if very familiar with XHTML , CSS, AJAX , specifically jQuery. We have mockups for three different areas of our site that need to be coded (cross browser compatible). Here is some info on what we’re using:
Backend: Lighttpd, Apache, PHP , MySQL FrontEnd: XHTML , CSS, AJAX , Adobe Flex (Desktop Application) Frameworks: jQuery, FancyBox, Smarty Scripts: WordPress 2.9, vBulletin 4.0.2, aMember 3.1.9PRO Custom Applications: stockguy22 Flex Application, Virtual Trading Floor, areaPNL
One of the mockups must be turned in to a WordPress theme. Right now we use PageLines iBlogPro4 – as nice as it is, we can’t customize it too much for our needs.
We have two custom web applications right now that serve out information to our subscribers. One of those is our Virtual Trading Floor. It is a live updated platform (AJAX/jQuery with a lot of polling going on) that grabs information through a MySQL database, and that data comes from an Adobe Flex application.
So that being said, two mockups will be for our custom web applications.
This is one of our web applications, just ot show an example.
If you would like to find out more, please contact me. Skype is vegim.beoglli
I’m looking for a graphic designer and someone to help mod a nice theme. Paying decent beer (it will probably be grey goose) money for good work, and potentially much more work in the future. Need a logo designed, buttons, and some other small stuff. Mostly need to make stuff look good.
