The team at StiltSoft got busy this weekend, submitting a Codegeist entry that provides a very highly voted Confluence feature, Sectional Editing.

The plugin is called the Confluence InPlace Editor, or CIPE for short. CIPE users can temporarily disable CIPE when printing or screen capturing, and CIPE is enabled on a per-space basis. Good work Maxim and team!

Codegeist: Two Developer Previews and $45k in Cash Prizes

We’re introduced two new developer previews along with Codegeist, Speakeasy Extensions and ActiveObjects. Speakeasy is a new super easy way to extend Atlassian products. Extensions are built entirely client-side, in HTML, Javascript, CSS, etc., and they’re enabled on a per-user basis. ActiveObjects is an ORM that ultimately makes plugin data access and storage significantly faster and more efficient. Each of these new technologies have an associated prize category. Take a look:

  • Best Overall Plugin ($15k) – Whether you build an extension or a traditional plugin, this prize will go to the overall best plugin built
  • Best Speakeasy Extension ($7.5k) – Speakeasy is a new simple, shareable extension framework we’re working on. It allows the products to be modified with nothing more than HTML, CSS, and JS. Anyone can write a Speakeasy Extension, and anyone can install one. The best new Speakeasy Extension will win this prize
  • Best use of ActiveObjects ($7.5k) – ActiveObjects is a a brand new data storage framework for plugins. It greatly improves the way plugin authors can store and access data, allowing you to do more than you ever could before. The best use of ActiveObjects will take home this prize
  • Community Prize ($15k) – This prize goes out to the highest voted prize by the community, but only if the entire contest sees a total of 2000 votes
