The Asterclick documentation website has had a major makeover as a prelude to the coming (R15) release, so check it out http://asterclick.drclue.net/index.php
AsterClick has upgraded it's webSocket (HyBi) support to include HyBi versions 07-15. This newly completed support will be included in the AsterClick (R15) release.
The GIT public repo has been initialized at http://code.google.com/p/asterclick/
and represents the current efforts as we close in on the big R15 release.
Current support of the HTML5 features used by AsterClick
has developers reporting success with current versions of
Chrome,FireFox,Opera, and Safari.(no word yet on IE9)
Remember AsterClick is the world's ONLY event driven
as all other systems rely on..
The project for AsterClick HTML5 event driven interface to Asterisk AMI has just
released a new set of packages (.zip, .deb, and .rpm) that now support CentOS on
the Elastix Asterisk distribution. We hope this will also support the PIAF asterisk distribution as well. (testers needed)
We believe this is the worlds very first truly event driven web API for Asterisk AMI,
and hope to see developers creating some wild applications with it be it drag-n-drop HUD systems or new fangled live dialplan editors with in memory
live call testing of dialplan fragments without having to modify or reload dialplans
The WBEA component is now finished and working and all that remains prior to release is to create some documentation, although we'll probably do that part in partnership with the Alpha testers. For those that don't know about WBEA (pronounced "W" as in www) it makes any AsterClick or other HTML5 web application into a standalone desktop executable for both Windows and Linux.
So head on over and create the next cool GUI application for Asterisk using but a browser and a text editor!
The new AsterClick WBEA tool sputtered to life today, allowing a web based AsterClick HUD tool to function as a stand alone Windows desktop executable.
To make it more interesting , the Windows Desktop tool was run under Linux wine!
The HTML5 based AsterClick HUD tool was able to place calls, manipulate call queues , meetme conference rooms and the like with no changes to the web code
A bit more testing and polishing remains, but WBEA lives and AsterClick as well as other HTML5 based web applications can now exist as installable executables!
So now the "AsterClick HUD" which is a test bed application for the AsterClick server is doing meetme conferences, agent queues, transfers , monitoring ,recording
and many other things in Asterisk , with most of it being slick drag and drop.
The low latency is amazing. The hard ware button for hold when pressed lights up just as quickly in the web page as it does on the phones own hardware LED.
Soon you will be able to manipulate calls as they visually traverse the dialplan , and even modify that dialplan during an active call!!
The WBEA which allows AsterClick web applications to run as desktop executable programs is just about done, with the next WBEA tool being aimed at Droid.
The AsterClick server has been on a steady march forward , with multiple
applications being written based upon the technology.
A new element to the AsterClick ecosystem is underway which the
Asterisk community sponsors have generously provided funding for as well.
The new component allows AsterClick Web applications to be instantly deployed
as a windows desktop applications. The coding standards are being kept extremely tight, so that the AsterClick desktop applications will not only run in windows, but also run most excellently under Linux wine.
This will not be the last stop either, as there are already plans in the works for
a mobile app tool as well.
So basically , one will be able to take the AsterClick applications you can develop today , and with the coming AsterClick WBEA tool , deploy that very same application as a desktop executable within literally minutes.
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
