Meet Sulfur — a Media Manager App Built in JavaScript

Originally posted on Developer Resources:

Since Automattic is a distributed company and a lot of us work from home, we hold meetups to get face-to-face interaction. The whole company meets up once a year and individual teams get together more often. One component of those meetups is a “meetup project” that we all work on together.

The team I lead — “Team I/O*” — just finished a lovely week in Reykjavik, Iceland. Our team is responsible for partnerships and our APIs.

We spent the first day releasing better JavaScript support for our APIs. After that we decided to make an example app, mainly focusing on the new CORS support and implicit OAuth system.

We decided to build a media manager purely in the browser. We picked a codename and Sulfur was born.

Update: Check out the live demo!
