Applications // Gaphack

What started as a small curiosity and proof of concept ended up becoming something that some may find pretty useful.

Gaphack essentially allows execution of arbitrary javascript within the context of the Phonegap / Cordova API. I could see this being useful for developers who want to test project ideas without setting up a full IDE or for utility scripts and portable webservice testing, etc. Hook up a bluetooth keyboard and you can easily code right on your phone as well. The entire Phonegap API is available to the executing script.

Next steps are to create a more robust UI, shared code repository (with ratings), and integrate a plugin to allow raw TCP connections.

It may well work on other platforms that Phonegap supports (maybe even iOS sans-local filesystem access), but I have only tested on Android ICS / JB.

One of my most fun (for me) experiments in game design was my project The Platform Guy. This game was a plugin for the Google Chrome browser. On any website you can click the game button and it will attempt to transform the webpage into a Mario-style platform game using the existing elements in the page.
