Frog Development Environment coming soon!!

Ninestiles School in Birmingham have been beta testing our new Development Environment  (yes, you’ll soon be able to extend Frog in any way you want, by creating your own code and database systems within Frog itself, and even pushing your hard work up on to the Frog Exchange for others to share the benefit of)

Ben Hall and Mo Karim from Ninestiles have created a few widgets of their own.  I thought I’d share them with you ;0)

First off is a Parent Booking System for Consultation Evenings:

Parent Booking

They’ve created their own LIVE connection to their cashless catering system:

They’ve also created a Live College Competition Graph:

and the Head of the College can add an Event at any time through a simple database interface:

Add New Event

On the assessment side, they’ve created their own flash based connection to a Frog database for a Progress Graph:

Flight Plan

And finally, they’ve extended the new social networking system to include Mentoring data in the Student Profile:

Mentoring Data


Personally, I’m really excited about this.  Many of the items above are things that our customers are already asking us for, and the fact that Ninestiles have built these themselves, and at a later date would be able to share these, if they so chose, really starts to make the point of where Frog is going as a platform, and as a business.  When we release this capability out into the “wild”, we’ll also be providing source code for many widgets to give you folks a head start.

Ben, Mo – well done fellas, fantastic!!

  1. I believe the ability to code in there should be available before the end of the year, and the database will be a couple of months after.

    Don’t quote me though, please, these are BIG changes to the system and there’s lots of opportunity for nasty surprises….so there is no official release date for anything, yet

  2. These are the type of things that I have been asking for from Frog from the moment we got it.

    Looks brilliant – bring on the release!!!

  3. Looks very cool however was shown then at BECTS 2 years ago but have heard nothing yet. any sign of relese date??
