Welcome to Splatforms.com
Splatforms.com is the host of *forms, simple web forms that represent some of the most basic elements of web activity such as text messages, links, articles, events, and contacts. Behind every *form is a background task runner that takes the data that you enter on the form and posts it to as many places as you can find tasks to deliver. Our open infrastructure allows anyone to develop and share a Task to take data from any *form and post it to any site that permits unattended data entry. Registration is free and easy, and you can sign up right now.
There are many ways to fill out a *form
You can simply pull up a *form and fill it out at the keyboard, but whole point of the *forms infrastructure is to automate things, so we've provide a complete line of *form Loaders that do the typing for you. Our Wordpress plugin completes and submits a *form every time you publish a blog entry, and our variety of browser bookmarklets let you harvest data directly from existing web pages and drop it right into the appropriate fields on the form. And if that isn't enough options for you, we've set up the *form Loader: API to let you create your own *form Loader from any source of your choosing.
We have *forms for a variety of common data entities
Currently, we support five (5) distinctly different *forms:
- Simple Text Messages
- News Articles/Blog Entries
- Calendar Events/Appointments/Meetings/etc and
- Contacts (People)
For additional information on all of the various *form types, you take a look at our About page.
A *form Task takes data from one specific *form and posts it to one specific target site
A *form Task consists of the instructions necessary to take the data from a specified *form and post it to the specified target web site. Using your account preferences, you can associate any number of Tasks with any type of *form. Once your preferences have been established, whenever you submit a *form, all of the Tasks associated with that type of *form will be queued up for processing by your *forms Local Agent. If you cannot find a Task to perform the action that you require, we've set things up so that you can sign up as a Task Developer and create as many Tasks as you'd like.
Over 400 unique target web sites and growing ...
We are constantly updating our list of target web sites, adding those that we discover and removing those that cease operations. The Internet is a dynamic and ever-changing place, so we are bound to fall behind now and again, but it is our goal to continuously add the latest destinations for your data and cull out the deadwood as other sites terminate their services. And, as always, we are always looking for help in this regard, so you know of a site that we should have on our list, please do let us know!
