Banner for TGSoc site

See for discussion 10/11/2021.

Reminder: Header on OfficeLive back in 2010 (moved to Linux 2012).

2. Image made from clipping graphics using HTML/CSS (2014 timeframe).

3. Approximate image made from HTML5 Canvas with graphics (source: banner.js) from scripting (clipped as image and used since 2017 timeframe).

This is being explored in the context of Content Management. We have looked at various systems, including Joomla, Drupal, WordPress and others.

About the images on this page.
#1 was based upon Microsoft's entry into business by internet. Lots of little companies bought in. The access was free. Then, it was taken away by Microsoft. Hence, after looking at alternatives, I decided to build a simple HTML-framed website on Linux. The buttons, etc, were just organized images that had been cut from the MS site and then supplied with links. This page shows what it looked like from 2012 to 2014.

#2 came about due to the growing content. The management became cumbersome. Too, it was time to look at progress that had occurred, say that driven by mobility. In fact, I tested the new configuration to check its degree of friendliness to mobile devices (I'm 1G/2G, myself, for good reasons). That time was when various CMS alternatives were also explored. Several prototypes were done using these. One thing that Javascripting (and other languages) do is allow use of the flexible features of HTML which has been improving itself. But, along with this new facility came insecurity (lots of it). Like hacking of these systems. And, so I dropped back to HTML/CSS. And, it worked. A simple example: DAR Chapter.

#3, and so, we finally get to Javascripting. As you can see, we have plans. Eventually, there will be a database to handle user information. In the meantime, we will stress Content over Configuration (that old battle). It really needs to be evaluated in terms of 0, 200, 400, 800 (a theme of this site).

4. We have been looking at various options in the myriad of new approaches released over the last decade and one-half. We were impressed by Clojure for both frontend and backend work. However, some have argued for going native and doing their own thing (I love roll your own). So, recent updates using h/c/j are encouraging.
