NXTMemo - Official thread
« on: September 02, 2014, 04:33:11 pm »

Someone has already released a Nxt messaging site today, coincidentally I finished mine at the same time!

The idea of a twitter clone based on Nxt messaging system has been around since the beginning, now it is here: https://nxtmemo.com

Send your unencrypted messages to NXT-W6CT-NPDH-AAQW-HWCHA to have them show up on the site.

Login with a Nxt token to choose your display name - it must be a Nxt alias belonging to your account.

NXTMemo is free and open source. Source code available at https://github.com/nxtmemo/nxtmemo

Have fun with it :) Any feedback is much appreciated.

I already have many ideas how to improve and extend this concept, and am already working on some of them - so stay tuned for more.

How it is used is not up to me but to the people who use it - if there will be any :)

People can download the source code and use it for whatever they want.

Cool (: looks like your further ahead than nxtnews on the twitter rip off front. I really like the hashtag implementation. I can give you my source if you want to see how I got around the encryption (i use php). https://github.com/jonesnxt/nxtnews

I see we both like bootstrap, I almost used the blockquote class also. If you have any question feel free to ask me, I'll succeed to you service because I think its cool and I should probably focus on Jay wallet

Cheers

Nicely done, Toe!  I will be pinning this in Chrome and keeping an eye on it. ;)

Thanks everyone for your feedback!

Not displaying encrypted messages is by design. This way everyone can check the messages displayed are really on the blockchain. :)

New Feature
Here is a new thing you can do: Create profiles

Just go to Alias setup, enter your information and store the generated data it in your Nxt alias.
The info will appear on the site once the transaction has gone through.

This is what a full profile looks like:
https://nxtmemo.com/alias/example1

One problem I've run into is that the Nxt client automatically converts all letters in the alias field to lower case. So if you specify an URL to a profile picture, make sure the URL works with all lower case letters.


Logo Contest
The site also needs a logo.
So I am offering 5000 NXT bounty for a logo design, plus 500 NXT bonus for a favicon. (At current price ~ USD 200 and rising)

Please post your logo contest entries in this thread.
The contest is open until the end of the month. The winner - if there are any contestants - will be chosen on 1st of October.
I reserve the right to pick no winner if no contest entry is appealing.
I have no specific wishes how the logo should look like, but it should go well with minimalism.
The logo should be provided in PNG format and additionally in a vector graphics format like PSD.
The bounty is held by this account until payout: NXT-8793-E97L-WTDR-GHTWK

Good luck :)
Let me know if you have any questions.

cool new feature. you should add that the logo should preferably be in vector. it's just more versatile for later use.

I like the profile feature, but not so much how I need to change my alias so that it doesn't point to my NXT account. :/

something minimalistic to kick things off. hint on the blockchain with the intertwined message bubbles.

Yes that's a bit of a problem. I guess at the moment there is not other solution than to have separate aliases for the profile and receiving payments.

@sadface Thanks for your submission, looks great. I really like the subtle blockchain imagery :)


A larger update of the site is coming up soon. I've decided to take it in a bit of a different direction than just doing a twitter clone. The messaging system will stay the central part of the site, but Nxt just has too many awesome features to leave them unused. More information and a open beta running on testnet should be available in 2-3 weeks.

Hmm strange, all the messages I can see have shown up. Do you have the Tx ID?

sadface has won the contest, congrats!
It was also the only entry, but since he/she pretty much made what I had in mind I didn't bother to promote the logo contest any further ;D
PM sent, funds will be released as soon as I know which account to send it to.

The site update will take about another week or so, after that I'll have a (hopefully) pretty big announcement.
