Speedgraphic is a web application which can be configured to do full-length screen captures of a complete website automatically. For example daily, weekly or monthly, or any other frequency.
A RESTful API is built in, so as to enable external applications to pull in the screen captures. As this process can also be automated, the end result is a completely automatic content management system.
We implemented the following techniques for this project:
Django is an advanced web application framework, written in Python. Django incorporates a great number of features, enabling developers to develop websites and web applications very quickly and efficiently. We save our clients time and money by getting up to speed quickly using Django.
A Content Management System (or CMS) is the part of a website that enables content managers to edit their sites' content. On of the many marvellous features of Django is that a basic CMS is part of every project. We can then easliy and quickly customise the basic CMS for our clients' needs.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a technique to enable the styling of web pages in an efficient manner. The main advantage is that changes in style do not necessitate a change in the actual page. For our clients this means that we can implement design changes quickly and cleanly.
MySQL is a very popular open source database, most often associated with LAMP. But we go one better with MySQL and Django. Django has exhaustive support for MySQL, as for a number of other database backends.
Git is our preferred way of managing software projects. It enables us to work on our clients' projects as a team, which is of course essential for larger projects or when speed is an absolute requirement.
Python is our programming language of choice. What makes Python hugely different from languages like Java, C++, and .NET, is that it is much more flexible and concise, allowing programmers to get much more work done on our clients' projects. On top of that, we use the Django Framework, which delivers our clients even more development speed.
