Nimbletoad unveils caimeiju.com, a powerful web-based research tool built on the open source Content Management System Joomla!, utilizing the JoomlaWorks K2 content creation component and JPGraphs Object-Oriented PHP Graph creating library.
By integrating these tools, we were able to develop this site for our client Language Media Agency at a fraction of what proprietary technology would have cost. Caimeju.com shows the power CMS systems have beyond a basic website. Open source CMS systems, like Joomla! can be used to build dynamic web applications that stand along side some of the best proprietary software on the web.
By using JPGraphs, we were able to render statistical graphs on the fly in PNG format, allowing for a much faster display of the community data. Users are able to access the information without the constraints or need to install proprietary tools such as Adobe Flash on their web browser. Caimeiju.com is one of the most robust real estate tools that can be viewed on smart phones such as Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s Blackberry. Users of the iPhone and other smart phones can view the site and graphs without waiting for Adobe Flash to be available on their devices.
Caimeiju.com is a landmark real estate research tool, targeting Chinese Real Estate buyers in the US market. Caimeiju’s community data spans 1700 California cites, with plans to expand service to additional regions in the future.
