My CMS is a coordinated set of LiveCode stacks (interfaces).My system leverages the filesystem and the command-line (shell).My file-format is XML/RDF, aka Linked Open Data.My
CMS can handle these inputs: text, csv, xls, json, htm, xml, rss, eventually pdf too.
My CMS also features bots that leverage the [semantic] web.
The Pantechnicon would be a repository of linked open data.Any suitable web-client will be able to fetch this data, re-use it, with any tools that they wish.One interface will be our Pantechnicon web-site (perhaps a wiki, or something wiki-like).Another interface will be my CMS.
The data is either downloaded on a page-per-page basis, like the www.Or downloaded all-at-once; in which case it can be used offline.Offline changes can be synchronized with the canonical version of the data (by members only)..
It is akin to FreeCard, because:* it's an xCard because it leverages one (Livecode).* it's scriptable with an xTalk (Livecode).* it's free, aka open-source, because I'm using the open-source version of LiveCode.
* it's file-format is XML, which is what I suggested back then, but turned-down in favour of a binary format.
The old-Pantechnicon, and this new CMS, were/are both crafted entirely by yours-truly.I did everything I could think of, to make it a community effort, but almost-all of the work was performed by me.I enjoyed doing it though, and I learned a LOT, and some of what I learned and designed is useful to me now.
Stay in touch,Alain

Subject: Re: [HC] Pantechnicon Artifacts Query
Your CMS does sound interesting. Would it be web-based, or would it require an app to be downloaded (I am not sure what you mean by "something akin to FreeCard", do you mean that the Pantechnicon would exist as a stack-like file on a local disk which retrieved it's contents from a remote server when opened, or am I missing something?).
Anyway, whatever format it will be in, I am glad it will be available again; looking through my mostly-working version, it does seem to contain an astonishing amount of information on HyperCard and its clones. Was this written entirely by you, or was it a community effort?
