this is not a blog

I Reckon THIS Must be the Place

THIS

 This HTML Is Simple - a PHP blog-like application that is small, efficient and fast or something.

Stupid Programming, Dumb User


So, I tried to login to Twitter, and the result simply threw me back to the login form. Was my ID wrong? My password? There was no error message. I (embarrassing) tried it a few more times. Same result.

Turns out, I disallow cookies exceptionally -- and I forgot to add twiter.com to be allowed.

Why, oh why, did not Twitter supply a message like "Cookies must be allowed to login?" It it the easiest fucking thing to do program-wise.

Come on.

If the code here has any standout characteristic it is it is small. That is exemplified, IMO, in the latest version of the Rules; and GMLP.

Called Batch Language Rules Processor on Github: BLRP.
And Markup Language Processor on Google Code: Markuppro.

Using the techniques developed for THIS the code are not classes and have no global data. There are few inline string literals, no inline HTML, and all functions are small.

This code is, as near as is possible, truly reusable, extensible and easily understood and, therefore, easily modified. Small, data-driven algorithms to work independently together.

Oh yeah, there is also WordBash, a WordPress clone written in GNU Bash -- in under 2000 lines.

About The Defining Data, Mar-31, 2014

Key portions of this code are driven by data. The "Rules" data described above is just one example of what this is: replacing code with data.
