Just testing something, no reason for it. :) You’ll see, hee.hee.
Just a clue … :)
Loads of Progress!
Since we last posted a few weeks ago, development on Apps@Glorbi have seriously surged! Since we last blogged, findit was nearing completion, and we’ve decided to leave it a little incomplete (we have to reposition 3 buttons!), so we can get along with other things. In that time, we’ve written quite a few awesome apps. [*] LinkSync LinkSync is an app that let’s you find...
Find it's progress!
Since our last post, find it’s receiving tonnes of attention, and is nearing completion. We’re probably 3 days away from a release. Find it (and other glorbi services) will require a Glorbi account to use. Find it is releasing with an iPad Web app/tablet optimized website, as well as the primary website. We’ll be creating a mobile web application soon, and quick-adders for each...
Find It - Index your life!
Find it is a service we recently created, which enables you to keep track of your stuff! You add something, and where you put it, through our mobile web app, or desktop service, and easily search for it on the mobile or desktop version. At the moment we have an incredibly efficient autocomplete system enabled on our desktop site, and we hope to port that to our mobile web app shortly. ...
The Glo(r)b(i)al Bar
Odd title? We’re giving Glorbi a navigation bar that’ll be accessible all over glorbi, and we plan on releasing the outsourced version of the bar for developers to use on their websites, to keep their customers more engaged. We’ll be releasing the glorbi global bar project in a matter of weeks, and we’ve decided to call the outsourced bar Project Ri, while it’s in...
We've had a change of heart
We initially thought up glorbi as a marketplace, but why stop there? I’m an innovative guy, I make an average of 2-3 web services a month. Why not take them ALL to glorbi, and build glorbi in to a network of useful web apps, web sites, services, software, and much more. Basically, the initial glorbi selling thing, is only 1 part of glorbi, THR glorbi marketplace, followed by any other...
Starting on the Messages app
Just dived in to the messages, and we’re pretty much done with the PHP side of the sender, I’m going to need that theme to apply some styling to the array we’re going to call out in to the inbox, as well as the conversation. So we aren’t going to worry about that for a while. :) So far, the sender, database, empty files, are all ready - and interfacelessly (:P) we’re...
We've made one last adjustment to login
Login will no longer need to check for your permanent session id, as that causes too many hassles when running multiple queries, and it doesn’t make that much of a difference when we’re already validating for major changes such as the IP address and User Agent to prevent from XSS. Now on to messages! We’ll leave the core platform for later :)
Rewriting the Login Backend
We’ve been experiencing some problems with cookies, and they’re a bit unreliable and vunreble to XSS attacks, so we’ve switched over to a full session based system. Sadly, the small downside to sessions, is we won’t be able to remember you! :( You’ll have to login after every time you re-open your browser. The security of the sessions are around about the same,...
Time to get work on the core platform
After two days of writing code for the auth system, it’s nearly come to an end. After which, we’ll be getting work on the core platform. We’ll adapt the design to the site, and first start off with the basic functions, then get work on our messages app. If glorbi does take off, we’re going to become a bit like Google! Releasing new services each week! Some completely...
Login System Done!
Logging in on to glorbi is probably one of the safest login scripts I’ve ever written! When you login, it stores a large array of data in our database, and checks this data against even more pre-stored values, and variables running in sessions and cookies all around our site! So much so, that on every single page, we run about 13 checks to make sure, you’re you, and your data...
Well, so far we’ve done a survey of 6 developers, and 27 people, and we’ve agreed that our logout system will automatically log users out after 1 month, unless you click logout, deleting your sessions. But, to keep you safer, when you close your browser, and reopen it, you will have to type in only your password, because on a money related website. Security versus Convenience,...
Twitter account setup
I can’t write any code at the moment, and so I just set up our Twitter account on @glorbidotcom Follow Us! We won’t be tweeting much till later!
sessions.php is very very complex.
The session id system we’ve integrated to keep our users safe from any sort of hacks, is looking so be so secure, so complicated, that we have 5 cookies, 7 sessions, and we’re encrypting all our session data with special cryptography tools. We randomly generate 2 IDs, get the username, IP address, and user agent, save them all in an encrypted cookie, upload those values to our...
While we're at it: Logout, done.
I made the login script a while ago, and thought why not make a logout script as well. That’s done! It’s also pretty long! If your session doesn’t exist - it logs you out anyways (well it would have earlier), and creates a blacklist localstore on your computer, which will get the website to record your actions on your next visit. Here’s the code, with variable names,...
[Done]: Uber Complex Login Script
Well, that’s one script re-written! The login script for glorbi, is so complex, that I can hardly comprehend it without writing it all down in a web of scribbles. Well, I think it’s safe to say, that unless you can hack multiple encrypted cookies and sessions, whilst altering the encrypted data values from the database checks, all that occur in about 0.3 seconds, glorbi is safe from...
Let's get Started
Well, our template is being taken care of by an awesome web designer, Irving! (Follow him on Twitter: @IrvingTeng) and so that won’t be discussed for a while. For now, we’ll begin with the PHP, we’ll include some source code, excluding sensitive data, and variable names, database names, etc. So, we’ll start by coding up the queries for the home page, the login page, the...
