Journal: The TT Calendar library 1.0

Journal by carndearg
Yet another bit of free software from me. The TT calendar library is a PHP library for producing and manipulating calendar months as HTML. It simplifies the process of producing a calendar as an HTML table, and allows individual days and ranges of days to be coloured or enclosed in anchor tags at will. It has been tested with PHP versions greater than 4.0.6. The TT calendar library is free software released under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public Licence. Get it from http://www.technotoad.com

Journal: Carndearg?

Journal by carndearg
Someone asked me what "carndearg" means.
Anyone who's spent some time hillwalking in the Scottish Highlands will have seen at least one mountain called Carn Dearg, there are quite a few. I am told by Gaelic speakers that "Carn Dearg" means "Red rock" or "Red Mountain" and is pronounced something like "Karn jearrag".

Journal: TT Web Site Manager 0.4 and poptasticDB database functions

Journal by carndearg
Big software release day for me today, both my projects having major releases.

Version 0.4 of the TT Web Site Manager is a general purpose database driven web application framework written in PHP, featuring support for multiple database servers.
Version 0.4 brings new versions of the ODBC and MS SQL modules, as well as an experimental new module supporting SQLite on PHP5. This release has been rewritten to use the poptasticDB database access functions, and incorporates many feature upgrades and bug fixes.

The poptasticDB database access functions 1.0 v0.4 are a set of PHP function libraries designed to provide cross platform database support for PHP applications from a common programmers interface. They are free open source software released under the GNU Lesser General Public Licence.
Current platforms supported are as follows: MySQL, MS SQL Server, SQLite and ODBC, though SQLite support can not be considered stable until it has a stable PHP5 version to be tested upon. Future plans include ports to Oracle and PostgreSQL.

Journal: TT Web Site Manager 0.34 and ODBC module

Journal by carndearg
On the offchance that anybody reading a post of mine looks at my journal, here's an announcement about two pieces of software I wrote.

The TT Web Site Manager is a general purpose database driven website management system written in PHP, featuring support for multiple database servers.

It allows multiple web sites to be built and managed entirely on the fly from dynamic content stored in a database without recourse to static files.

Pages can be assembled in any order from a library of code items which can include a mixture of static HTML, SQL and PHP. There is no framework of templates or forms to constrain the coder and there is no limitation on content type, meaning that almost any content can be served

The TT Web Site Manager is currently at release version 0.34. This provides support for English(UK) language and MySQL data sources. In addition, the ODBC module, providing the TT Web Site Manager with support for ODBC data sources, is at its first stable release. You can get both pieces of software from http://www.technotoad.com.

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
