Web-based Mind Mapping(++)

At the last Dojo Developer Day one of the most awe inspiring things was the first-day lunch where we opened the floor for demos. Without any planning at all, we had easily 10 great demos of everything from real-world uses of dojo.charting to data binding to live apps like http://www.coloradohomestop.com/. At one point it seemed like awesome demos were going to keep coming out of the woodwork well past the allotted time.

I guess that should lessesn my surprise when great new Dojo-based apps pop up, but when the guys from Kayuda sent me a link today in IRC about their web-based mind-mapping tool, I was floored. I’ve been using FreeMind to collect my thoughts for projects for about a year now, but not being able to share them has always been a pain. Kayuda looks to address this head-on.

They’ve got a public alpha, so give it a try and let them know what you think.

    Another online mind mapping tool which supports collaboration can be found at http://mindmeister.com/

    (although I don’t think they used dojo).

    Best regards

    Is that a bit like MindMeister?

    Couple differences between us and mindmeister:
    Unlike standard mindmapping tools (which mindmeister is an excellent example of), we are also a visual wiki. This means that you can input (practically) unlimited formatted text in a node.You can name linksYou can place your nodes where you want them.I dunno, but Kayuda sounds like a better proposition to me. But, then again, as the lead dev, I’m probably a bit biased. :-)

    Hi Alex, I’m using dojo in a web-based notebook application – Dappad notebook. Perhaps you will feel interested.
