Now I have dropped the PHP files into the GitHub repository. I haven't put the CSS files or the folders there yet as I can't figure out how to have folders in the repo (maybe you can't do that).
You can see it here: Fumetti
The PHP scripts (which are the ones making up the website of Phill from GCHQ
) works by simply dropping the pages in the right folder with the right file-name and then the site fixes everything else. There is no cumbersome database. All data is contained within the file-name of the page-image, namely page number and title.
First I need to make a good README file so people know what they are looking at.
Secondly I just want to clean the code to make it more logical and minimalistic. Content, functionality and HTML have to be separated as much as possible (the latest update where I added multilanguage support was fast and messy. I just had to get it over with so I could return to making the comic). PHP is often like that, code, markup and content in one big cauldron, but if I can, it would be nice to have a single page with the multilanguage translations, a couple of pages with the design (including the horror of CSS) and some pages with functionality.
In the process I also need to change the Danish variable names to English and provide comments in English (right now they are mixed between Danish notes to self and some proper English comments).
What has to be made in the long run is probably a small user interface so people who are absolutely non-tech can go about it. Should be doable.
Then maybe a UI for designing the site... a bit more work, but also doable.
I want to keep it as simple as possible and there will never be functionality like comments. It should just be a way to put a readable comic on the internet.
