OurList is a mobile-first website used to add property / flat listings and budget information. It features a drag-and-drop interface for sorting, auto form population after adding a url, ajax, basic crud and google maps search integration.

I will most likely complete, package and document this project and make it available for free to download.

Purpose & AI

Data Input

An issue with data-input on mobile devices is the rate of entry compared to a traditional keyboards because of its form factor.  To circumvent this issue, when a Home is added, once the URL is entered the website is checked via AJAX and it automatically populates the other fields (Name, Location, Closest Station, etc…).

Reason

Initially I would list things online using an XML / XSLT based web application which boasted a responsive design; however, as a gift to someone deer to me who constantly uses mobile devices, I developed a more powerful application built from scratch.

- Once the URL is pasted in, it will automatically populate the other fields via AJAX to an algorithm I built that sniffs the website of the URL.
