My new website has just gone live: wintots.co.uk – What’s On in Winchester for Pre-Schoolers 0 – 5.
In in its initial incarnation its just three pages: a static home page, browse/search the database with drill-down and a details page.
I used SQLite for the database rather than MySQL as might be expected. It may come back to bite me but it seems to be working well so far. The database is created locally from a CSV file using a custom conversion program that also massages the data a little. The entire site can therefore be uploaded using an FTP transfer since an SQLite database is just a normal file – no need to run any SQL on the live site to create/update the database.
This is the first web site I’ve made where I’ve had to take portable devices into account. There seem to be numerous iPod/iPad simulators out there, none of which are much cop, so I’ll have to track down someone with a real device to check it.
