Popfly mashups

After Steve Clayton demoed it to me last week, I decided to try playing around with Microsoft’s Popfly. Popfly is a tool for creating Mashups in Silverlight, with a drag and drop interface.


It comes with a tutorial (on right) and the interface is easy to get used to. In fact it is even easier to use than Yahoo Pipes.

I built the app below in a few clicks. It displays the status of my Facebook contacts.


This app was created in Firefox on my MacBook Pro.

One glitch I did note was that you can’t write into the Search box (when using Firefox on a Mac).

  1. Nice one Tom! Heard about Popfly yesterday from Martha Rotter at Mashup Camp – and now here’s a demo from you. It’s also my first Silverlight experience. Interest whetted … 🙂

  2. Tom, I am thrilled to hear! Let me know how it goes for you if you continue to mess around with Popfly and if there’s anything I can do to help!

    Also, I went ahead and forwarded your bug to the Popfly team so hopefully we’ll see a fix for that rolled out soon.
