catseye.tc

catseye.tc is Cat's Eye Technologies' website: http://catseye.tc/.

It was, until recently, the official distribution channel of Cat's Eye Technologies' public offerings — mostly software distributions, but also some electronics projects, unsolicited opinions, and other miscellany. It continues to be the canonical mouthpiece and reference work of Cat's Eye Technologies. However, many of its software services, such source repositories and issue tracking, are now handled offsite, in the Cat's Eye Technologies organization on Github.

In years past, the Cat's Eye Technologies web site was hosted on various different domains. From most recently to least recently, they have been:

  • catseye.tc
  • catseye.webhop.net
  • catseye.mine.nu:8080
  • www.catseye.mb.ca
  • www.cats-eye.com
  • and way back in the mists of time, www.pangea.ca/cet/.

This frequent relocation of our web address was done specifically to please Phantom Hoover. (We're working on a brainfuck derivative, too, to make his joy complete. Stay tuned.)

catseye.tc may be considered our permanent domain name -- we're stuck with it now that it's part of the Java namespaces of our products, right? Feel free to make links to this site using URLs that begin with http://catseye.tc/. The www prefix is not required.

Our aim in making this website is that it both conforms to W3C standards and provides a reasonable user experience. Well, that used to be our aim, then HTML5 came along.

The site content is generated from a database called Chrysoberyl which consists of Markdown documents and other structured data embedded in Yaml files.

It is rendered with Jinja2 templates to produce HTML files. We do use Javascript on the pages on this site, but we try to do so judiciously when it's not fully required, such as in an Online Installation.
