  • Working on a PHP based front end [openfront]

    Hey there,
    I'm pretty new to this forum, in fact this is one of my first posts. Anyway, the purpose of this post is to show you guys a front end I'm developing. It's going to be a fully open source front end. And although I'm running it on a dual core windows system, I'm hoping to make it [semi?]-compatible with lower powered (even linux powered) machines. Essentially, anything that can run a web server.
    Right now, the only requirements are PHP, Flash and javascript (makes use of jquery).

    It's a little early to show you, but i'm excited over the project, and would love to hear input and suggestions now rather than after i'm done coding it.

    All i have coded right now is the main screen, the obd2 reading (Although the code is not yet implemented) and some of the music player.

    Here's some shots. (I know i should have taken direct screenshots, but it's been a long day and a camerphone seemed quicker).




    I'm hoping to have a bar run across the bottom which will have all the play options and a main menu button. On the first boot, it has a fade in period of about 1-2 secs, and between each page change, it has a fade in speed of 200ms.

    Suggestions, comments and criticism is appreciated.

    Looking good!
    You should join our discussion that is going on about a web FE.
    I think you'll be interested by the discussions that are going on and by the fact that you'll have a few people ready to beta right away

      Two suggestions before I even look at the thread

      1) Resize the screenshots before you post them
      2) go with a clearer name like webfe or phpfe
      openMobile - An open source C# Front End (why choose openMobile?)

        On the web flash does do good work with gauges.
        Still not a fan of flash though.

        lolo, openfront -- openmobile
        OpenFront does sound better than Open Front End ... OFE

        webFE is not sexy!
        phpfe ... sounds like PHP/FI

          Oh it's not flash based, the only thing that requires flash is the mp3 player.
          I like the name for now, but it's just a project name, i might change it when i release the final code.

            Hey Nabz,

            I think that maybe you missed something in regards to the name.
            just_chat has a front end called "open mobile".

              Having "open" as a prefix just implies it's open source. eg, OpenOffice. I personally don't think i should be restricted from using that.
              However, i'm open to name suggestions

                Dude, I think the name comment was more of jest than picking on your choice of names.
                But anyways ...
