garden data

More garden-related geekery

We’ve started planting seeds in our vegetable beds, so naturally wanted to keep a record of what is where, and since when. Hence, Garden of Ethelred

It’s a fairly simple site – the data is in an xml file, and we have xsl transforms for the different pages. We chose xml because my wife is familiar enough with it to make changes too.

On the main hosting site I run a short PHP script which uses the XsltProcessor class. For testing on the home server the setup is more ‘fun’ – a CGI shell script which calls xsltproc. I’m not sure why I’m quite so amused at writing CGI as shell script, but I am.
