At Socal Linux Expo, I met some of the guys from MindTouch, makers of Deki Wiki. They showed me around their REST API, so I quickly jinned up a small app to use in my presentation. [Feb, 2010: The demo no longer works, and I’m not inclined to fix it.] It’s a really simple app that calls their search AP, displays a results list, and allows you to add individual results to a favorites list.
The app took me about 1 hour to develop and deploy, so there are not a whole lot of features. Nevertheless, there are some cool interactions that you can do, such as drag-and-drop from results to favorites (double-clicking works, too), and using the delete key to remove from the favorites list.
If you’re interested to making some customizations with Deki Wiki, drop me a line (ted at bungeelabs) and I’ll give you access to the source code.
