For the last few months, with Devrim, we were very busy working on a new project which focuses on easing the web development tasks of any web person (so, the title is a little self-promotion but not an exaggeration -: )-).
It is called ioDeck and launched, built with PHP and it is installed into (runs from) a single website and serves its features to any number of websites.
Like said, it focuses on easing web development tasks and we started simplifying the biggest headache for many: forms (the most simple looking yet complicated web elements).
Creating a simple form is not a big deal but integrating validations (on the client-side and server-side), sending the contents via e-mail, recording it to a database and having an interface for viewing them later requires serious effort. And, if this form has many fields (like a HR form), this gets worse.
ioDeck is an intuitive form builder where a form of any type can be created within seconds. It simply allows you to insert form elements (textfields, radio buttons, select boxes, buttons, etc.), set the validations, re-order the items with drag 'n' drops and build any simple-to-complicated form so quickly.
You can also define the default values of a field and set a CSS class for it to customize it.
ioDeck is so good in notifying users when a form is submitted. It can send the notifications via e-mail (with
PHP mail() or SMTP authentication), Twitter and Facebook. Btw, you can create and customize the templates of these notifications so they look exactly as you want and reflect your brand.
Also, forms can display a custom message and redirect to a given URL after submissions.
Once the form creation is complete (it really takes seconds, give it a try in the demo), we can go to the embed menu and select its look from a list of styles (the forms HTML structure uses Twitter Bootstrap's form structure which is so flexible to customize). Or select a bare-bones version to customize it yourself completely.
After that, simply choose the embed method that fits to you the best:
- a shortened URL to the form (in case you want to share the form via Twitter, e-mail, etc.)
- embedding via JS or iFrame
- getting the HTML code of the form (for max customization)
And, voila! A fully-functioning, customizable and secure form is ready for collecting submissions.
When a submission occurs, you (+ your customers, friends..) will be notified, these submissions will also be stored and can be viewed from ioDeck anytime.
As mentioned in the beginning, ioDeck will ease multiple tasks. Forms was the 1st app, 2nd app will be Newsletter for sending unlimited newsletters to your lists (and e-mail fields of forms). Let's keep the 3rd app as a surprise. ioDeck is priced $69 one time fee (no monthly payments), a "use it forever" license and comes with 6 months of free upgrades + support. And, any future apps will have their own prices.
P.S. By clicking the "Demo" in ioDeck, you get a full-featured custom installation that will be available for 48 hours so that you can play with it.
