I love these specialty flow apps being built on the WordPress.com JSON REST API. An API is in the works for core WordPress. I’ve been cajoling people to build a “Hello Gallery”  webapp on both APIs that multi-select uploads straight into a gallery post with an optional title. That’s it. Anyone?

Since Automattic is a distributed company and a lot of us work from home, we hold meetups to get face-to-face interaction. The whole company meets up once a year and individual teams get together more often. One component of those meetups is a “meetup project” that we all work on together.
The team I lead — “Team I/O*” — just finished a lovely week in Reykjavik, Iceland. Our team is responsible for partnerships and our APIs.
We decided to build a media manager purely in the browser. We picked a codename and Sulfur was born.
Update: Check out the live demo!
