This post is a few weeks late, however JSApp.us has been shutdown. At the time that JSapp was first released, it was the first open node.js hosting platform. It featured an easy to use web based code editor (which was extremely useful at the time as developing node.js on windows was fairly difficult and required compiling code yourself). The system also provided CNAME support as well as subdomains for quickly developing demonstrating applications. There was even a command line client which allowed for quick deployments from the command line and uploading and downloading files from ones file system.
Given the abundance of alternate Node.js hosting options and the age of the system, it seems that essentially all users have already migrated off the platform, so this change is unlikely to been disruptive. The source will remain available on github if anyone interested in some of the internals, however given how dated the system is, I am assuming that there are better solutions today for nearly all aspects of the system.
Today I announced eyeJ a new application for eyeOS that allows for applications to be written in Objective-J. Right now the system is in very early stages, only basic apps can be written at this point.
But for now check out this screen cast:
I have made another Appjet web site. This time it is for making Ubiquity commands and being able to distribute them at the click of a button. It is free and easy to get going with a small simple command. If you do not have Ubiquity yet then you can try it at http://labs.mozilla.com/projects/ubiquity/. Then head over here to get some new commands to try out.
So far I have the Ip-get app, that will determine your Ip address. “Quote” that gets a quote from my quote Appjet site and can insert it in to any text field.
