I am writing an application for Mac OS X. It is called Command Control (⌘ + ctrl buttons from the Mac OS keyboard... pretty clever, huh?)
This application, written in Xcode (objective-c cocoa and applescript) allows you to connect to your MODx database, get the list of documents, edit them, create new documents, delete documents, etc...
It uses an XML-RPC server I put together based on the The Incutio XML-RPC Library for PHP
to send and receive data from the Mac OS X desktop, so it consists of 2 parts. Command Control.app (the OS X application) and cmdctrl.php (the XML-RPC server you upload to the root of your MODx installation).
This is VERY alpha software. Only the basics are working at this time (edit, create new, and delete). I am working on the RTE, which at this point allows text input, but the heading 1-6 selectors and the bold, italics, and underline buttons are not working yet. I am also working on image upload. The whole RTE thing I am finding out is no trivial task (to say the least).
To keep an eye on the project and to download the latest binary, go to http://piratemachine.org/software/
*** EDIT ***
I am rewriting this in REALBasic so I can deliver binary executables for all major platforms.
I would like to get suggestions for a name for this app (since cmd+ctrl is a term that only seems appropriate for the Mac) from this community. Please post your naming suggestions in this forum thread.
