GitHub Issues in Cappuccino

GitHub Issues built with Cappuccino looks
incredible. Not only that, it feels usable too -- details like inline
windows that can be moved around and keyboard shortcuts all work as
you'd expect.

What's amazing about this is it not only pushes client-side JavaScript
but it also uses Heroku's Node beta! The blog post on
Cappuccino.org has more details: GitHub Issues Cappuccino

280 North continue to embrace JavaScript for every aspect of their development cycle, yet there aren't that many apps
out there based on Cappuccino. I've never understood why it hasn't
caught on more, but I suspect Objective-J puts people off.

I make a large portion of my income from iPhone development, and I'm a
big believer of Objective-C, which means I'm comfortable with both
JavaScript and Objective-J. I think it's likely that once Mac and iPhone
developers are sold on Cappuccino and Atlas
we'll see lots of Cappuccino web apps cropping up.

If you've made any Cappuccino apps, open source or commercial, please
let me know in the comments and I'll write up a feature about them in
the future.
