So i finally put my new grails built website live this week.
The elevator pitch is:
On demand stamping of PDF ebooks with your customers name and email
The long description is:
A web based service providing on demand stamping of PDF ebooks with your customers name and email. Helps protect your intellectual property by providing a deterrent against file sharing.
People who write ebooks and self publish will know what I am talking about.
I have been working on it in my spare time (is there such thing as spare time) for the last few months. Recently I took some quality time out and worked on it full time to get it out the door. The good new is that I have developed 4 grails plugins that have come out of building this website.
I love grails and it has help me so much in getting things out the door as soon as possible so I feel it is only right to give back to the community. So I have released these four plugins:
Grails template engine plugin
Super file upload plugin
Paypal Pro plugin
Although the code for the last 2 is checked in i have not found time to write up the docs. But will get to that asap. If you want to see the Super file upload plugin (SFU) in action go to my new website above and click on the demo button. The styled red browse button you see there is using the SFU plugin. When you upload a PDF you get the upload progress bar showing too.
Also I am hosting the whole thing on Amazon EC2 so will write up some posts on running grails apps on EC2. Some ticky bits worth documenting.
