My name is Graham Trott and I’m the developer of the Yorkshirewoman website. I’m writing this in October 2019 and I’m currently 71 years old.
If you are reading this it’s for one of a couple of reasons. You may be curious to see what the page source code looks like, or you may be charged with making changes, perhaps long after I’m no longer available.
Almost all software becomes harder and harder to read the more time passes since it was written. After a few years, even the original author will have some difficulty in figuring out what was done, and anyone coming new to a project will have major trouble in all but the simplest of cases. So these notes are intended to provide a starting point.
My preference is to use a better language, one that is designed to do the job without requiring a host of bolt-on extras. Since none were available I wrote my own and it’s called EasyCoder. I won’t provide a step-by-step tutorial (I have to leave you some work to do!) but just point you to where you can get the information you need.
EasyCoder has its own website at https://github.com/easycoder/easycoder.github.io. Inside the Codex is a table of contents with a number of articles about building websites with EasyCoder. One of these explains the mechanism used here on Yorkshirewoman, where the home page contains just a boot script which loads the main script(s) that do all the work. With the help of the debugger in your browser you should be able to get familiar with the architecture, though in most cases all you will need is to know the script commands themselves, all of which are documented in the Codex.
And that’s all I have to say. Do contact me via the EasyCoder website if you would like to know anything.
