Transifex is becoming more and more popular amongst Joomla! developers. The latest developers to join Transifex are the Ninja's behind Ninjaboard, who resgistered their project just days ago. This means that we'll be seeing translated versions of Ninjaboard soon - something we can only look forward to, and applaud.
Ninjaboard is a popular forum component, built on the Nooku framework. By joining Transifex they're tapping into the resources Transifex offers: easy translation management, and translation tools for the translators. Other developers, like Joomlaworks have showed them they way - K2 is now the "featured project."
The summer has arrived, and although Joomla! will not be participating in the "Google Summer of Code", the developers seem to have decided to hold one on their own. They've been very productive so far.
The team of Nooku Server has released Alpha 3 of Nooku Server. Although it's still in alpha, we couldn't resist taking a peek. One of the things we noticed is that both the database and the files and folders have also been put on a diet. But in exchange, you get more features. Nooku Server now boasts a "multi site feature" allowing the admin to create multiple sites that share the same codebase. The databases, however, are separated for obvious reasons. We tried the multi-site feature, and it turns out to work quite well. It's not quite perfect *yet* but it's got potential.
This is part five of a series of posts that explains how to built a blog, using Joomla! and K2.
