Mobile Drupal - siruna en Life after OSMOBI. The future of Mobile Drupal <p>Drupal users who have followed my blog will probably already know about OSMOBI, the online service to make your Drupal, Joomla! and Wordpress site Mobile. OSMOBI has been the brainchild of Siruna, a Belgian startup focussing on creating solutions to make mobile websites. Examples of mobile websites that are still running on Siruna technology are <a href="http://m.stubru.be" title="http://m.stubru.be">http://m.stubru.be</a> and <a href="http://m.uitinvlaanderen.be" title="http://m.uitinvlaanderen.be">http://m.uitinvlaanderen.be</a>. Examples of OSMOBI sites are not existing anymore since the service stopped at the end of June.</p> <p>The Siruna technology, including OSMOBI focussed on mobilizing your existing Drupal sites and by the end of april 2010 more then 1200 Joomla! and Drupal sites used the free OSMOBI service to create their mobile website.</p> <p>To get a feel on how OSMOBI worked, have a look at the screencasts that are still online:<br /> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/SirunaOsmobi" title="http://www.youtube.com/user/SirunaOsmobi">http://www.youtube.com/user/SirunaOsmobi</a></p> <object width="500" height="300"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/9U9yly3P8tg&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9U9yly3P8tg&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="500" height="300"></embed></object><p>Although the huge adoption of OSMOBI and the increasing need for Mobile websites, the service did not survive due to insufficient funding... This left more then 1000 developers stranded without any mobile sollution. So the natural question I have got was "what's next?".</p> <p><a href="http://mobiledrupal.com/content/life-after-osmobi-future-mobile-drupal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> drupal osmobi siruna Wed, 14 Jul 2010 15:49:22 +0000 Tom 84 at http://mobiledrupal.com UiTinVlaanderen, cultural events now mobile with Siruna <p><span class="inline inline-none"><img src="http://mobiledrupal.com/sites/default/files/images/logo-uit-in-vlaanderen.jpg" alt="uitinvlaanderen" title="uitinvlaanderen" class="image image-_original " width="400" height="68" /></span><br /> <a href="http://www.uitinvlaanderen.be">UiTinVlaanderen</a> (dutch for 'Going out in flanders') is the biggest cultural events site in Belgium and it is powered by <a href="http://www.drupal.org">Drupal</a>. </p> <p><a href="http://www.amplexor.com">Amplexor</a>, an IT services company specialized in content management systems, has now created a mobile version of the site optimized for all mobile devices.</p> <p>The mobile site allows you to quickly navigate through all the events in your neighborhood and the mobile website augments the experience by taking your GPS coordinates into account. </p> <p>The website provides an easy way to browse through all the events across Flanders, view event and location information.</p> <p>Together with the recently launched mobile Drupal site of <a href="http://www.stubru.be" title="http://www.stubru.be">http://www.stubru.be</a>, this is again an example of how Siruna powers Drupal in order to leverage a mobile audience. </p> <p>The site can be accessed with your mobile device by surfing to <a href="http://www.uitinvlaanderen.be" title="http://www.uitinvlaanderen.be">http://www.uitinvlaanderen.be</a></p> <p>If you want to experiment with creating a mobile Drupal site, surely check out <a href="http://www.osmobi.com">OSMOBI</a></p> <p><span><img src="http://mobiledrupal.com/sites/default/files/images/uitinvlaanderen_mobiel.png" alt="" title="" class="image image-_original " width="380" height="543" /></span></p> <p><a href="http://mobiledrupal.com/content/uitinvlaanderen-cultural-events-now-mobile-siruna" target="_blank">read more</a></p> drupal mobile osmobi siruna Fri, 02 Apr 2010 21:00:50 +0000 Tom 78 at http://mobiledrupal.com Siruna Rocks <p><span class="inline inline-right"><img src="http://mobiledrupal.com/sites/default/files/images/logo_stubru_206.jpg" alt="stubru" title="stubru" class="image image-_original " width="206" height="150" /></span><br /> ....with the release of m.stubru.be the mobile site of the nr.1 public broadcast radio station "Studio Brussel".</p> <p><a href="http://www.stubru.be">Studio Brussel</a>, the nr. 1 radio station of the Belgian public broadcaster <a href="http://wvw.vrt.be">VRT</a> has released last week it's mobile website using <a href="http://www.siruna.com">Siruna</a> technology.</p> <p><a href="http://mobiledrupal.com/content/siruna-rocks" target="_blank">read more</a></p> drupal mobile siruna Mon, 08 Mar 2010 21:48:48 +0000 Tom 75 at http://mobiledrupal.com DrupalCamp NY 2009: Session notes (Mobile Drupal) <p>This weekend another wel organized Drupalcamp New York took place: <a href="http://groups.drupal.org/new-york-city" title="http://groups.drupal.org/new-york-city">http://groups.drupal.org/new-york-city</a></p> <p>I could only attend half a day of the conference, but enough to see that the rest of the day would be great...

Since its first submission I had a quick cycle of bug fixes and feature requests, often due to my impatience to release my code to the community... I have been trying to answer / fix these bugs and fixes as fast as possible. So I hope I did not loose to many among you during that dark period.</p> <p>In terms of adoption we are currently clocking on stats of 206 installs and I am glad that people are keeping up by using the latest version of Mobile Tools... Looks we are heading towards a healthy uptake :) ... </p> <p>With 1.8, the module has reach a fairly stable release, so time to draw some attention to the module to get some feedback or some stories. So here is quick overview of the functionality of the module... I'll try to keep up the documentation on the Drupal doc page for the module: <a href="http://drupal.org/node/459686" title="http://drupal.org/node/459686">http://drupal.org/node/459686</a>.
