About this site
This site is based on the following open source products (bottom up):
Although the page generation is dynamic via Mason/mod_perl, the pages themselves are static
and do not contain any scripting. The full source of this site is freely available, just drop
me an e-mail.
- Operating System
- Happens to currently be SuSE Linux. Any *x or *bsd would do. Any *dows
should be avoided.
- HTTP Server
- Apache 1.3
spelled as in mod_perl.
- The usual bundle of modules from CPAN
that do all that complicated but really boring stuff.
- Mason ist based on mod_perl and allows
easy creation of consistent looking web sites. Easy? Well, if you want to
try it yourself, first have a look. On the other hand I did
not encounter any limitations due to mason.
- Swishe is able to index many types of files
and also databases via external helpers. Swish-e comes with
an easy to use perl-interface.
- Access Statistics
- SQLite is a small and fine
file based relational
database. Here we use the perl module DBD::SQLite available at
- Mailman is Gnu's mailing list software. Mailman
is certainly overkill for a single, small mailinglist and it could be confusing to users. But then
again: I avoid to re-invent the wheel, at least not right now.
The pages try hard to be compliant to the W3C
