plantae foundations

I’ve made a variety of important changes to plantae’s foundations. For the curious they are:

  • Converted the webserver from apache to LightTPD. LightTPD is fast and easy to configure. Plus it has built-in support for FastCGI which makes plantae run much faster.
  • Set up a Subversion repository. This manages the code for plantae and allows me to track and reverse changes. This will also be very useful if someone else helps with the coding.
  • Figured out Switchtower to handle plantae’s deployment.
  • Hooked up a code repository at using Collaboa. This is how I intend to track feature requests and bugs. Hopefully our users will also use this feature to pass on suggestions.

Now the plan is to start adding plant characters.
