Frequently Asked Question

Where does the name come from?

The name Obgaektify is an orthographic mash-up of Objectify + Gaelyk. (Gaelyk of course takes it GAE from the Google App Engine.)

How do you pronounce Obgaektify?

I recommend pronouncing it just like you pronounce Objectify. The precedent in English for "ga" sounding like "ja" being words like "gaol" and "hygaene".

Who's behind Obgaektify?

Obgaektify is a little pet project started by Jeremy Brown to further simplify the writing of web apps on Gaelyk. Of course, this plugin is really only a little syntactic sugar sprinkled on top of Gaelyk and Objectify. To take a quote out of context, "Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor."*

Obgaektify is Open Source and is released under the Apache License (ASL 2).
