Application has ability to aggregate various information resources for editing of a new article. Services: development, support.

We have created comfortable but highly interactive tool with lots of functionality and availability of application for 24/7. We have done:
1. Backbone was used to manage tons of JS code in the project.
2. Rails based API to offer our clients and mobile apps to deliver and manipulate with data.
3. Managing of multiple data flows
4. Complicated widgets grouped in multiple tabs on single page
5. Realtime updates(persistent connections)
6. Consuming, parsing and delivery of large twitter stream(thousands of accounts)
