Well, I’m finally moving to where I want to go with jeens (or should I call it “jeans”?), my family-based, open source CMS based on HTML::Mason and Mod_Perl. This is just one of multiple parts to this project. This is a sample of my individual page, where each family member will be able to create their own pages. Soon I will be working on the sub family and extended family pages. This will eventually become a “myfamily.com” on steroids, all free and open source for you to have the “geek” in your family install and run for your own family!
The part you are reading right now is thanks to the work of Simon Cozen’s Bryar, an object-oriented approach to the well known blosxom software. I have added an HTML::Mason renderer and also modified the set of modules to work in both Mod_Perl 1.x and Mod_Perl 2.x (the former only worked on versions 1.x). I will post source here shortly.
This site and blog and all parts of it are a work in progress, and when I feel it is something worth using I will post the code for all to use. All code used to generate the parts of this site that you can see is developed under the GPL – please send me a request if you like what you see and would like to help!
Why am I calling this project “jeens” – well, I wanted a variation of “genes”, which was too unoriginal, so I figured I may as well keep it “in the family” and name it partially after part of my wife’s name. Let me know if you think this is stupid or have better name ideas.
