Pixel Art Scrapbook
A prototype of an application for cataloguing pixel art that inspires you, for reference when you make your own. It uses Ember for MVC, Node + Express for a simple RESTful API and MongoDB for the database. There are
two three versions here: "front-end-only" is just a demo of the interface with the back-end functionality removed, as seen on my portfolio site. You can make changes but nothing is stored. "full-functionality" is the full version but you'll need to run a local Node server to use it. The most recent version, "desktop", is a desktop application built with TideSDK. For now it's the same as the web versions but this is the one I'm going to build on. To give it a try, get the TideSDK Developer app, hit the Import Project button, and select the
desktop/build directory to open the project. Note that this application is pre-release software with local file access, so use at your own risk.
I learned most of what I needed to make this from the Building an Ember.js Application screencast and from Creating a REST API using Node.js, Express, and MongoDB by Christophe Coenraets.
