so far i won the struggle. :-).
Like about every year took an old code out of my treasure chest. 4 years ago I had the Idea, it would be nice to have a local running hygrid. At that time I began to write that in java. within the last week I redone this whole thing and made a usable application out of it.
I can imagine that you an ed could see this as a kind of sito-rip off. For me it brings hygrid to a higher level - considering that browsing it from far away is awfull slow. Regardless to wich Backbone i was ever connected. Okay, i have to admit, that this is no point to worry about to much. But for me this development has a lot of benefits, even beyond hygrid, that kept me up on this for so long.
A subproject of this app is a hygrid-moviemaker! It creates a PAL/NTSC movie-source of nearly unlimited length.
Finally I think of a Collab-suite in which one can browse and participate on hygrid/gridcosm. Media-library, Graphics-editor, reservation, submission.
What do you think?
