Things I’ve Made

Works filed under 'Web Backend'
 

Software I’ve written for deployment to web servers. Content management, random lists, serving up documentation, that kinda thing.

 
FlatList: Plaintext lists made presentable
FlatList is a PHP script that converts your text-only checklist into a pretty list with graphical checkboxes and everything! (I wrote this on 2013 Jan 01. )
Random Noun Generator
The biggest word generator on the internet. Picks up to ten words from a list of more than 2,200 common nouns. Useful as a brainstorming tool for writing and problem-solving. (I wrote this on 2009 Mar 14. )
Ligature auto-linking wiki
Ligature is adaptable wiki software that automatically creates links between articles based on the nouns and other words that appear within them. Use it as a wiki, or as story-telling software, or whatever. (I wrote this on 2009 Jan 17. )
Keyword-based blacklisting
Mainstream anti-spam technology is not future-proof to any degree — spammers change domains and servers too often to keep up. I believe keyword-based blacklisting is the best approach to spam protection, and I'll explain why (and how). (I wrote this on 1970 Jan 01. )
txt.page: compact manuscripts
txt.page is a quick and secure way of serving up template-based documents — especially manuals and other documentation — in as small a format as possible by using templates and storing content in separate .txt files. (I wrote this on 1970 Jan 01. )
The Verbosifier shoutbox/tagboard (discontinued)
The Verbosifier is shoutbox/tagboard software with unprecendented anti-spam measures and oodles of customisability. (I wrote this on 2013 Apr 19. )
‘The Punctuator' Text Inserter
The Punctuator allows users to insert special punctuation marks and common text formatting tags at the click of a button. It comes bundled with my blogging/article publishing software, Writer's Block. (I wrote this on 1970 Jan 01. )
Writer's Block CMS (discontinued)
A multi-user Content Management System with blogging, article writing, multiple categorising and the ability to give items their own text URL instead of being forced to use an ID number. It's running this site right now, in fact. (I wrote this on 2005 Feb 21. I last modified it on 2015 Apr 02.)
The Ligature Dev Diary (archived)
This is the development diary of my now-discontinued auto-linking wiki software, 'Ligature'. These posts were collapsed into this single page for permanent archiving, and are ordered from oldest to newest. (I wrote this on 2009 May 15. )

That's all there is; there isn't any more.
