Simple technology

Posted under » Simple CMS updated on 11 October 2011

Clean. Easy to use. User-friendly. Intuitive.

This is website is using simple technology. Part of my 2009 new year resolution to "keep things simple stupid" (KISS) and effective.

Simple technology doesn't use any bloated CMS like Wordpress, Joomla or Laravel. It doesn't even use a database. The minimum web server requirements are PHP and Apache. Other functionalities are done using client-side scripts like JavaScript and CSS.

My main objective is to separate contents from layout like any CMS. However for my projects (at work), a framework is usually needed because we are dealing with other developers and we need some uniformity.

Most of the things taught in anoneh are being used in this website or has been used in some of my projects. I only recommend what I know that works for me.

I could not use wordpress for anoneh and claim that I am a web expert because most of the fancy stuff you see on wordpress are done by wordpress. Wordpress is meant for everyone and I know (and taught) a teenager who knows nothing about web development using wordpress.

All the graphics, layout in this website are original. I guarantee that no other site out there look or feel like anoneh. More info on anoneh css.

Having a simple website makes it easy to migrate. Migrating a website from one server to another can be a daunting task because not all servers are the same. This website is long lasting and is older than most websites I've made. Anoneh can only grow and get better over time.

I did consider using a mobile friendly template using bootstrap but my target is for serious people using a PC for work. I even resist the temptation to use ads even though my website receives a lot of visitors.

Remember my friends, KISS because less is more.
