first gui client demo

It's been a while since our last post, but it was worth the wait. This video shows the first demo of our sync client including a graphical user interface. The video covers the following steps:

  • empty database on the fruuxServer
  • the content of the local addressbook
  • installing and running the client
  • fruuxServer database in sync with local addressbook
  • changing a name in the local addressbook
  • syncing again
  • fruuxServer database in sync again

Just some comments:

  • yes the gui isn't very pretty yet and we have to add our logo
  • the screencast shows just first- and lastname in the database of the fruuxServer, but of course all other entities have been synced as well. the system is able to handle all the custom entities!
  • there is no public betatesting yet, but hopefully soon

Looking forward for your comments.
