Generic Site Template - start your project faster!

A fundamental template for a web app, including navigation, skinning, I8N and DB setup. A foundation to build your web based app on.


This software is intended for web developers. Especially developers that often make new sites/apps from scratch.

It makes it easier and quicker to get started on a new project by taking care of all that tedious stuff that just have to be set up each and every time you make a web app. Using this software you can get productive faster.

What it does

This software is basically the essential foundations of a web site/web app. It is a fully working -- and very basic -- web site, ready to upload.

It has navigation, I8N, templating/skinning, DB connectivity. 404 page, and default configuration, so that you do not have to create all that each and every time you create a new app.

Just unzip the files to a web folder/workspace, launch your editor and you are doing productive work already.

Of course you'll have to study the code a little the first couple of times in order to get familiar with it, but it is really not complicated once you get down to it.

Hey, there's even a README file with extra instructions. If you start by actually reading it things should be veery easy indeed.


See the README file, please.

This software is made for web developers, not end users. You are expected to have programming skills to use this software. Also, you are expected to build some stuff on top of it, not to use it as it is.


To operate the software you need a web server with PHP support.

To create the content for your site you need M4D H4XX0R 5K177Z!!!!!one!!! (just kidding). All you need is an editor, and working knowledge of PHP, HTML, CSS.

Try it

Oh well... there's not much point in trying the front end, as you will benefit more by simply downloading the zip file and unpacking it to a dev server and then checking it out in your fav editor.

But still: check it out here

It is all extremely basic and it does not look like much, and that is exactly as it should be. Because you do not want to start by removing features that you do not really need. This is all about getting up to speed quickly.

Oh, please note that the HTML source code is well-formatted too.

Of course you can and should change anything you like to suit your purpose. You are expected to do just that.


Install and uninstall

To install the software:

Oh, at some point you may find it relevant to upload to a web server, and to create a DB etc etc... No need to elaborate, as you're supposed to know these things.


To uninstall the software, just delete the software files. It's easy.

Current version

The most recent version is 0.0.2.

Don't worry: the software has been through many iterations and bug fixes, and the internal version number is somewhat higher.

Why such an extremely low number?

Per decision future versions will never reach version one! This is to signal that this software is intended for development, not for production. You will make the fancy prod stuff yourself. Only, by using this software you may get productive faster.
