We are working on Joomla! since its birth (to tell you the truth, even before its birth, since at the time Joomla! was called “Mambo”). Our services range from custom components, modules and plugin development to assistance contracts and education. Additionally, we developed and sell online two GPL’d components.

Joomla! 3 default editor lacks a fondamental feature that allows a user to attach a file to the article’s body without previously knowing the http URL.
This is a simple operation that most of my customers absolutely needed, so I wrote a simple plugin to ease the creation of hyperlinks to files stored under standard upload directory of Joomla!.
The plugin is available for download for a small fee that will be used to further develop the plugin and provide fast bug fixes and qualified assistance.
OSRM is a lightning fast open source routing engine for OpenStreetMap data. We are now using it in all the websites managed by our Django-powered GeoRouter platform.

Preparing the development environment Starting the development with OpenCronos NG wasn’t the easiest thing I’ve done recently: most difficult […]
It’s quite some time now that I started programming with low-cost MSP430 MCUs development kits, I must admit that sometimes I need more RAM and flash but I like this MCU a lot: its advanced clock configuration options, the 16bit Von-Neumann architecture and the low power modes make this MCU an ideal option for battery […]
