Get Something Built

All project work goes through Katapult Media. Business is open. Let’s chat.

For the longest I’ve been writing code but I never packaged my common code into a library. Well, that comes to an end.

In the past few months I’ve been writing a media library for playing media (progressive and streaming) which is being implemented on a pretty large scale site right now. That is really the core of the library but I also have a RestrictedTextInput/TextArea component that basically changes the color of the text beyond the specified character limit. So, if the limit is 10 the 11th character+ will be red, for instance.

Anyways…you won’t see anything in Google Code just yet but I will svn export from my internal svn soon and publish to Code.


Check’r out and I’ll blog when I start posting code to it.

Name Background:
Cairngorm (Flex framework; also a mountain name) had mad pub’ a few years back. I jokingly told my buddy Lukas I’m going to start a library named South Mountain (biggest mountain in Phoenix, I think) then I shorted it to SoMo. So…I stuck with SoMo. 🙂
