The website could not be live without the help of different technologies available free of charge. Some of them are mostly confidential (still) and are far from being restricted to the developer world. They can easily be used to the public.
- Apache is serving these web pages on a Red-Hat Linux box (Many thanks to Jerome Moliere for hosting this).
- The website is generated from XML via Apache Forrest which makes use of XSL, Apache Cocoon, Apache Ant, Krysalis Centipede, Apache Xalan and Apache Xerces.
- The blog software used is Movable Type.
- You might be able to find some SVG graphics, in that case you will need to Adobe SVG plugin. Some JPEG, or PNG images might also be generated with Apache Batik.
- PHP might also find its way with time.
- Of course you are reading these pages thanks to HTML and CSS.
- And with a bit of luck chance is that some Perl scripts are running behind the hood to automate a few things.
And then I'm asking myself how it comes that I need approximately 15MB of software to generate a couple of static web pages...
