WP-Logs integrates with Notifo

Having detailed logs of how your services are being used is important, but sometimes it’s nice to have immediate notifications of critical events. Enter Notifo, the super-easy-to-use push notification service.

We recently updated WP-Logs to support the Notifo service so you can now receive notices just about anywhere. We have some of ours going straight to phone, email, and growl.

WP-Notifo is required and must be configured properly. After you’re all setup, use it with WP-Logs by adding the ‘notifo’ key to your event call; i.e.:

$EventLog = new EventLog(array(
    'event' => 'New post',
    'text' => 'A user created a new post',
    'notifo' => true
));

Amazon S3: Integrate for fun, profit & epic speed boosts

The benefits of using Amazon S3 to store static resources are already well documented. It’s almost a no-brainer if you are building an app that hosts a lot of static files.

We just converted an app that we’re working on to use S3 for all user uploads. It not only sped up our development time but it also basically eliminated the need to worry about file-server scaling in our prototyping stage. And we may not need to worry about it for quite a while after that.
