iFact: Developing a Webix-based invoicing application

The initial task

My objective was to design and implement a simple application allowing me to manage my freelance business. The application is called iFact and is available on github. The basic activity consists in getting contracts with clients, performing the work or service and invoicing the client. Also, I needed to manage the invoice flow and to have a minimal dashboard for cash flow control. The volume of invoices is low: from one to a couple of invoices per month. The number of clients and contracts per client is low, it means 5 to 10 clients with 1-3 contracts per client, normally one single contract active at any given moment in time.

Use Case: Webix for Online Gantt Chart Maker GanttPRO

Spring is already in the air with its smell of inspiration and excitement. It is the best time of the year to plant the seeds of future foundations, but I know the people who can already reap the fruits of their labour that started 2 years ago.

Webix and Gantt show case

Today I would like to let the GanttPRO team showcase their online project-management tool that, among other tools, is built with Webix. In March 2015 they hit the market and now can boast the 200.000-audience.

That’s not an ordinary showcase. We had a chance to speak with GanttPRO developers and question them about their experience in working with Webix library. You can find their ultimate and honest answers in the below article.

“Curvas (Spanish for “curves”) is a tool for data analysis and business modeling intended to be used in such spheres as agricultural insurance and risk management. It was prepared as a part of my independent consulting services for a local company which was developing a new product in this field.

I was using Webix for another application, and I felt it was the natural way to go with this one, in which good user interaction and charting are key features. (more…)

Grow with Webix: Real Showcase from Rael Bauer

Hey everyone!

We continue publishing real showcases from our customers, which were made on Webix. Today we’d like to share an article about the RightNote, personal information manager program for Windows, provided by Rael Bauer.

“RightNote is an advanced personal information manager program for Windows. It allows you to store all bits and pieces of information in a single place and then you can access that information later. For example you can capture webpages, store source code snippets, JavaScript Spreadsheet, project notes etc.. all in a single place. More information can be found here: //www.bauerapps.com/rightnote/

Webix Showcase

 

We wanted to provide our users with a way to publish their knowledge bases to the web or to mobile devices, so that they could then access or present their information on these platforms.

We wanted to make sure that the output looked good and was also easy to use and navigate, hopefully providing some functionality similar to the desktop app. We also wanted the javascript to work straight from the file system, i.e. without requiring a server. (Many javascript libraries work fine on a server, but come to halt on filesystems). (more…)
