Millennium Development Goals - News

I started this heroku app as a entry for the Apps for Development organized by the The World Bank.

I ended up writing YQL datatables for the WorldBank Data API to make communication with that API easier.

To make this application a technology experiment for myself I used YUI in order to run this app completely on the client. Therefore the server implementation of this app is just this and the rest runs in the browser:

get '/' do
  erb :index
end

This app is now offline because the old Y! BOSS API became unavailable but here a screenshot of how the app roughly looked like.
