[ANN] Medium
« on: September 26, 2014, 03:52:33 pm »

We're excited to announce that we've begun working on Medium.

Medium is a middleware that simplifies and speeds up development of web-applications (e.g. browser games) using Jiniri as the back-end. Medium removes the necessity of writing code in C++/Java/PHP as it provides a convenient way to communicate to Jiniri directly by sending JSON-encoded requests and receiving JSON-encoded responses. With Medium, knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript and Abracadabra, which is very similar to JavaScript, is enough to develop software conforming to the latest industry standards. Medium is open-source and implemented as a Java servlet that can be run by any web server supporting Java Servlet 3.0 technology.
Completion is estimated to be around the same time as the proof-of-concept game is launched.

Stay tuned for more updates on this project and follow the development here: https://github.com/Come-from-Beyond/Medium

What is a user's reward for contributing to Jinn with their processor's computing power (once the Jinn processor is released). I mean, how will we encourage users to share their computing power rather than take from others without contributing?

In regards to the Jinn asset. Do all Triangle ventures fall under it? i.e. this project? Are shares in Jinn essentially shares in all Triangle activities or do some lie outside of it?

Good question!

All of the projects that are tied directly to Jinn falls under it indeed. We got a couple of more projects that are still only in conception stage that will be launched in the future (under Jinn).

Triangle may also launch other projects later, but nothing concrete is in planning now.

This question is not Jinn specific, you could ask the same about any other processor. Jinn project doesn't require others to contribute computing power.

This project is very exciting especially for other consumer facing NXT projects I have planned, which up until now would involve using several ad hoc complicated hacks to arrive at a solution ...question:

"Will Jiniri be monetized and if so, how?

Yes the full version of Jiniri Unlimited (multi-node) will be monetized by licensing while the limited (single­node) version will be free. "



If you are licensing the multi-node version, does that mean most developers that want to use this technology are limited unless you pay the licensing fee?

Edit: although I am not sure how to utilize this yet

Yes, once their project using Jiniri gets more users they will have to buy a more powerful computer. But more likely they will buy the license because more users means higher profits.

a little confusing..so its software emulator you can run on single server and scale into a federated version one you hit limit? if so how to you maintain propriety ownership, ie people sharing and pirating your stuff, do you plan some sophisticated software restriction mechanism specific to individual license?

also, why offer single node, when the goal and outcomes is what you can achieve from the processing power of the network? Basically I can achieve what you are offering today right now, with the single node version?

I will just wait to see how it works to understand it fully

Jiniri Unlimited will be offered as a cloud service. Limited version will run on a single node only.

Jiniri Limited will be on an individual's computer. It's enough for development, testing and even production usage if workload is not very big.

if this is all well and good. and you control the cloud server infrastructure, isn't porting NXT to this platform essentially under the control of one company? similar to ripple's infrastructure?

Ported Nxt doesn't need Jiniri Unlimited.

From my understanding that would be part of Jinn?

It's part of Jinn project but will be provided completely for free and open-source.
