Submit your Structr app, get a hoodie!

The idea is simple: You submit a Structr app along with some screenshots and a short description, and if your app complies to the requirements (*, see below), we send you a Structr hoodie or a mug (you decide! :-)). All approved submissions will be presented in our newest structr.org feature: the Structr Showcase. (*) Each showcase app should at least feature a description, some screenshots, and - most importantly - the app itself as a downloadable archive, containing the db and files…

We're hiring!

Tomorrow morning, we will leave for GraphConnect London 2015. It's the first time that we are sponsoring the conference we attended so many times before. It's a big step for us, and we are very excited and curious of what lies ahead of us. We've come a long way, starting with the first Structr version in early 2010. Things have worked out very well for us, we won some larger projects, giving us the freedom to continue to work on the project we love. There's so much to do, so many opportunities…

Prototyping Web Apps with Structr and Neo4j

At this Januar's Neo4j meetup in Amsterdam, I gave a talk about prototyping web applications with Structr. This time, the special task was to use an existing Neo4j database which was populated with some test data generated during the previous meetup with GraphGen, a very useful graph generation tool made by Christophe Willemsen. You can read the details in Rik's great blog post: Prototyping a Graph Database. Due to slow WiFi network it was not possible for everyone to download and…

Create Graph Structures from deeply nested JSON Documents

Recently, we did some tests with the current Structr version to see how well Structr can handle deeply nested JSON documents to create graph structures in Neo4j. We found out that it worked quite well up to the second level of object nesting, and only if new objects referenced existing objects either by their UUID or by a scalar value, if the corresponding mapping was defined in the schema. When it comes to attributes of nested objects being referenced by more complex values, like collections…

A Structr Demo Application in Less Than Ten Minutes

Description In this short video, I create a small demo application for a simple content management use-case in less than ten minutes. I import a template, prepare it for custom content, create a custom type TabContent with title, text and position, add some text, and use the data-binding functions in Structr to display it. Towards the end of the video, I demonstrate the difference between public and protected (non-public) content.
