Web/CMS

Brilaps is well versed in web technologies. We have developed applications of all types and sizes. Everything from chat programs & complex custom sites to award winning content management systems.

MiaCMS was awarded 3rd place in Packt Publishing's 2008 Open Source CMS competition under the Most Promising Open Source CMS category.

Mobile

No development shop is complete without a mobile arm. At Brilaps we have invested a significant amount of time developing mobile applications on a variety of platforms. These days we tend to favor Android, webOS and Nokia WRT.

  • Txtract - Txtract creates a backup of SMS & MMS Messages off an Android phone. Keep your memories anywhere you like.

  • YUI2GO - YUI2GO is a mobile friendly version of the Yahoo! User Interface (YUI) API documents (supports iPhone™ and Android).

Desktop/TV

Lets face it, not everything can live in the cloud. Sometimes you need a solid desktop application and well we build those too. Maybe its not even a desktop application in the traditional sense. Why limit web content consumption to a desktop browser or mobile device. We feel strongly that over the next few years more Internet content will make its way into the living room.

  • Yahoo! YUI Theater (Boxee Plugin) - A plugin for the Boxee platform, built on top of our Veedios platform, which enables viewing of YUI Theater's web video content on a TV.
  • Bridget - A desktop widget built using the Yahoo! Widget engine. Aimed at showing how one might extend MOStlyREST & MiaCMS into standalone desktop applications or widgets.
