MojoMotor Roundup

MojoMotorThere has been a lot of activity in the MojoMotor world since the software was released last month. Add-ons, community websites and websites built with MojoMotor have all surfaced.

Here’s a roundup of some of what has been going on.

There’s also been good activity in the MojoMotor Forums and even on Twitter. There’s even been a little controversy with some people complaining that MojoMotor add-ons are too expensive and some others calling people who think add-ons should be free “idiots” (probably not the best idea since some of those “idiots” might be your future “customers”). Hug it out, everyone.

As I mentioned when MojoMotor launched, I’ve been using it to power my ExpressionEngine 2 book website. I have a very simple implementation but with the add-ons mentioned above, you can already create more complex website with MojoMotor.

Seriously they should be careful about calling potential customers idiots. Let’s say no one was buying your add-on and a few people who were interested said it was too expensive. You call them idiots, you lost the few people who found the add-on on their own, and you have to work harder to get new customers or to get those former potential customers back if you decide to lower prices.

If add-ons are too expensive, just don’t use them. I thought MojoMotor was all about being small and simple, why burden it with add-ons?
