MiniWeb Rocks Hierarchically

with 2 comments

I’m late with this, but Dean Edwards: MiniWeb

MiniWeb models an entire web site in a single HTML page. All of the site files are stored in a JSON object which you can navigate with a UNIX-like shell or the system browser. It has a built-in templating system and has an approximate separation of client and server. It is in its infancy but is still kind of fun to play with. Parts of it are clearly unfinished but you will be able to get the idea.

This is rather glorious. Similar to TiddlyWiki, it’s an entire website in a single HTML page, but it takes a very different approach, packing a more or less conventional Unix file structure. Naturally I love anything that subverts the mainframe-isation of the web…

  1. I’ve taken a quick glance at it, but I honestly don’t know what to with it. No idea whatsoever.
    Nevertheless, it sounds very interesting!

    PS: You’ve seem to have become much more active here since your cracked-rib incident – coincidence?

  2. Hehe, yes, self-pity is clearly a better motivation than I reckoned…
