A little over a month ago, I sat down and started working on something I’m calling Netherpad. The idea is loosely based on etherpad, though I’m implementing it on .NET using ASP.NET MVC 4, SignalR, and some TypeScript.
After nearly all day of working on it, I got the basic live collaboration working, as can be seen in this video:
It’s an ugly hack, but it works.
There is still a lot of work to do on the project, but so far, it’s pretty exciting. Be sure to check out the code if you wish, but beware, it doesn’t really work right out of the box at the moment, though I will be working to make that happen soon.
