Desktop UI release

March 8th, 2017 by Sajiv Kurur

We released a new UI for desktop earlier this month. The major change has been a switch in the underlying technology from Dartlang to pure JavaScript. The earlier UI developed using Dartlang had certain limitations like the slider filter not working with Firefox. With pure JavaScript, the size of the code download at the user’s end has reduced by half, which should drastically improve the load times.

There are also some new UI features, which are minor ones, but hopefully useful 🙂
– Filter option for class, while searching for trains
– ARP date, i.e., date until which the railway reservations can be done
– Ability to switch between form-based & free-text and to change the mode of search within the search-results page
– Buttons for swapping and clearing of the search fields

Happy searching and please continue to give your valuable suggestions!

A question on speed

February 21st, 2014 by khushnood

A user liked the speedy experience on 90di and asked:

> really cool site…I am just curious, how your site is so fast .. compare to <name deleted> …u guys are using rest or something else ?

We always love it, when users like something and tell us. Paraphrasing the reply. Actually the fastness of a site, mainly depends on the server side (i.e. back end) architecture. There we have designed it with care for scale and keeping the latency low. We host on Linux servers. And use Nginx for web server. Server side code is in Java as well as now moved quite a bit to Go lang (Google’s new language – which takes less memory than Java)  while retaining or exceeding the speed.

Some bits have been coded in C++ for extra speed. So there you go, the architecture in brief. And we are trying and working on it to make it still faster..we will try to share more sharable stuff in the coming months on this blog.

Also we had been tied up enhancing and supporting the growth, and could not blog regularly over here last year. Shall try to be more regular on that front.

International flights on 90di

September 27th, 2012 by khushnood

Not sure, if you knew that you can also search International flights on 90di. The feature has been there for a while, but we did not mention it too much, as we were reliant on a single provider for that. But now, we have improved it a bit, and so perhaps time to tell you all about it.

There are lots of Airlines in India which travel international with one end of the journey in India. So we provide flights from Jet Airways, JetKonnect, Indigo, Spice Jet and Air India Express directly from these airlines.

Also for these (inbound/outbound flights to/from India) and all the other flights of the world we show flights from Expedia.

Some example queries:

1) Some popular routes from India – in these cases we show flights from the Indian carriers and also from Expedia
Delhi to Dubai flights on 20th
Chennai to Singapore flights on 22nd and back on 24th

2) Pure International flights – these we show from Expedia
SFO to Dallas flights on Sunday

3) Some other routes connecting smaller Indian towns with places abroad – Jet Airways and Air India Express do a good job of covering these routes
Lucknow to dubai flight on sunday
dubai to amritsar flights on next friday

Please do try it out. And give us your feedback. Last but not the least: please do remember to review the choice carefully before booking.

1021789

June 15th, 2012 by khushnood

Yes, 1,021,789! That’s the number of travel searches you did, dear users, on 90di.com in the last month.

We are ecstatic to reach the million search mark. And thank you all all for it. We love you for it. And hope that you celebrate with us, by doing more searches on 90di.com, and by spreading the word about us to your family and friends.

We believe in our model, and think its the best model to exist for travel bookings using the Internet.

We would also like to thank our partner Airlines on this occasion.

Indian Railways, we would request you to help us more, by being open. Give everybody an API. It will allow innovation to happen in this field. And people will love you more. Also allow us to make some commercial use of it.

Our Bus partners, we thank you.

Also open source software communities, we love you. We thank:

1. Linux: Where we develop, host and run our stuff.

2. Java and its eco system with lots of other open source libraries, created by the erstwhile Sun. Oracle, please-please don’t screw it up.

3. Apache web server – You never crashed in some 4/5 years of run! Need anything be said in your praise. We love you.

4. Tomcat and Jetty: We have used both of them, in various mixes at various times.

5. GWT: Thanks Google and GWT team for building such a cool piece of software. That said, the roadmap does look uncertain, and we will be forced to move to JQuery, or such, if you don’t dispel the doubts with actions in terms of some solid releases.

6. Demo Recorder: Its a brilliant piece of software to record stuff on linux. And it has helped us saved the day, during one presentation, when Internet connection died.

7. libevent: In our experience, libevent provides an excellent base to serve requests, if you want to code in C/C++, with perhaps 1/3rd the memory requirements of Java and twice as fast.

8. Eclipse: The IDE we use to generate our Java code.

9. vi: The best editor in the world, if you conquer it. For those, who have not had the pleasure of using it – Its the editor for coding C++, and shell scripts, and what not!

10. Memcached: The fastest way to cache some objects, and any thing. With the lowest possible memory & CPU footprint.

11. subversion(svn): For help managing our source code control (I know, I know, some people might say “You are not on ‘XYZ’ yet!”. The answer would be ‘will the change the shoe if it pinches me some where, not because some celebrity said, it pinched him!’)

12. MySQL: The best open source RDBMS, in the world.

Also, although not open source, we would like to thank Amazon AWS, for providing the best cloud services in the world. Which allows guerilla fighters, to more effectively compete with the corporates with armies!
