StupidZombie needs a facelift!

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

StupidZombie is a tool that can be used to ping directories like Technorati, Pingomatic, Blogalaxia and To2Blogs for blog updates. It also has the ability to write Tags (with a preview mode) to help users of systems like Blogger. Finally StupidZombie can be called from Cron u other schedule to automate pinging at desired intervals.

We are looking for a talented designer to help us to create the main website and to put together a theme that can be used with Swing Synth.

The project status is “Alpha” and you can take a peek on how it looks on the following locations:

More work being done

Monday, February 16th, 2009

This week I added fixes to the preferences routines (save, export and import) and also got some time to cleanup the blog; This week will probably play with some graphics elements (at my own peril as I’m not a graphic designer but I have gotten no help so far to make it better).

So far this is the roadmap for this month:

  • Agree on a common theme for both the website and the GUI
  • Refactor the Ping controller and Gui that shows ping
  • Use Synth to enable common look and feel.

So yep, looks like more cool stuff is coming. So far the other pieces work the way I like it and a beta release is not far away (you can download the code from Subversion here).

StupidZombie now has a blog!

StupidZombie is an OpenSource tool that I use to ping my favorite blog directories. It also can create a set of tags that you can use of blogs that support them (like Technorati, Veneblogs and others).

I will try to post updates here about the progress of the project, news and anything related.
