How Mashweb.Club is being built

Mashweb.Club has a root domain (Mashweb.Club) being served as a Ruby on Rails app on Heroku, and the subdomain doc.mashweb.club being served as static pages built by Jekyll and served on GitHub Pages. The subdomain blog.mashweb.club was being served as by Publify on Heroku, but is now being served as WordPress on a NearlyFreeSpeech.Net server. All three domains are cached by Cloudflare.

Jekyll Now was used to create one blog post on doc.mashweb.club, but now all remnants of that have been removed. The pertinent information from that post has been copied to this post.

The white paper on doc.mashweb.club was originally built using Ratchet (see goratchet.com), but that has been converted to Jekyll.

Welcome to Mashweb.Club

The bare skeleton of Mashweb.Club has been assembled: a Rails app with user signups; a white paper; a user-interface experimental prototype that shows how HTML elements can be dragged and dropped to new positions in a web page; this blog, which supports comments on its posts; and email (inbound to [email protected] and outbound to anyone). What is missed most is the user capability of installing working web pages–especially web pages with embedded JavaScript. I haven’t thought enough about whether and how to enable that capability. There are websites like jsfiddle.net that provide that capability. Googling ‘how does jsfiddle work’ gives some information on how it works. (See, for example, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8004001.) After enabling (or forgoing) that capability, I will have a better idea how to lay out Mashweb.Club’s “lab”–that is, its experiments. Then I will concentrate on providing more experimental prototypes and more background depth on the Mashweb concept. The background will be covered in this blog and in the white paper, for example by giving references and reviews on applications like Chickenfoot. Happy explorations!
