AWAjax.js is a JavaScript engine introducing real-time functionalities for Auctionata web pages so it behaves like a desktop application. It supports regular polling to the server for changes and sending event requests (optionally with data), usually as a reaction to some user activity. The original version was entirely built without any JavaScript library (like jQuery). Unfortunately, it can't be run without server-side support.
Slovak jazz music community portal completely built by me in Drupal 6. I provided a lot of custom module development for the portal.
