MM Interactive provides - based on the principle of so-called imagemaps - a set of tools to create and edit interactive areas on images in websites. These areas can have almost any shape. In addition, a veriety of possibilities for layout editing and adding content will be provided. The user interface in the TYPO3 backend will be as userfriendly and intuitive as possible.
MM Interactive is planned as a successor to the already very successful TYPO3 extension "MW Imagemap" also created by me. Since maintaining the compatibility of "MW Imagemap" with TYPO3 versions 6.2.x is too difficult I decided to make a fresh start with MM Interactive while keeping basic concepts of "MW Imagemap" but also providing a lot of additional possibilities. For the initial version of MM Interactive the following features are planned:
will run in TYPO3 > 6.2.x
movable tools to facilitate working
some customizations via Typoscript
basic settings in the extension manager (like default colors and default upload directory)
interactive content can be embedded in text (like the CType IMAGE WITH TEXT)
area border (events:inactive, clicked,mouseover,mouseout)
type(line, dashed, dotted)
area color fill (events:inactive, clicked,mouseover,mouseout)
area image fill image (events:inactive, clicked,mouseover,mouseout)
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
The goal of this project is to have MM Interactive ready and available in the TYPO3 extension repository (and at TYPO3 forge) by March 2015. The target group are all persons who create and edit content with TYPO3.
Why would you support this project?
My motivation: As a TYPO3 programmer and maintainer of TYPO3-websites I wish to provide my customers with the best possibilites for creating good content. The motivation for the supporters: Since MM Interactive will be open source everyone who supported this project will have the immediate benefit of using it once it is available.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money, as payment for my work as a programmer, will make a time window available for the development of MM Interactive. Without this support I am forced to take customer projects which will prevent me from even starting with this project.
Who are the people behind the project?
My name ist Michael Perlbach and currently I am the only one behind the project. I am a freelance concepter, programmer and project manager living and working in the beautiful town of Hamburg/Germany. I have been doing a variety of internet projects for more than ten years, thus I accumulated quite some experience - especially on the field of developing TYPO3 extensions. My style of concepting and programming and is focused on the development of applications with as much functionality as possible while keeping a maximum of usability for their users.
