Welcome to aquariusoft.org
This site is the base for all projects by AquariuSoft, also known as Michiel Scholten. AquariuSoft is specialised in web and backend development, system and network administration (Linux) and application development.
Currently the most active projects are the web projects, Python modules, and Python/Django stuff. The aquamorph livecd is not under development anymore and some other projects have been deprecated too. Those are prefixed with ⌚, to denote them being outdated.
The other projects aren't forgotten though. I just have to spread my sparse free time among the things that interest me most at a given time and I don't want to spread it thin.
ns-api and notifications
A very hidden-but-useful project combination is the ns-api library to communicate with the Dutch Railways information system and the ns-notifications notifier, that notifies you of delays and disruptions in your (daily) commute.
The Qik and paragoo site frameworks/generators
One of the projects of AquariuSoft has been actively maintaining the last few years was Qik, a PHP based framework for quickly setting up a site, even multilingual if you want. No need to use databases, only PHP has to be installed. You don't even have to know anything about PHP programming to set up a site with it!
However, it has been largely superceded by paragoo, a static site generator compatible with a big part of Qik's configuration, but built in Python and compiling everything to static html files.
A lightweight, online bookmarking system
Of course one can have their browser(s) synchronise bookmarks for them, but when multiple browsers are used and mobile phones come into play too, having a central system to keep interesting findings or other kinds of bookmarks readily available can be really useful. Enter digimarks, a simple, easy to install web-based bookmark system.
A new child in the aquariusoft.org family of websites! Behold familiescholten.net, the new home of - well - us :)
Yeah, it has been rather quiet here. However, work hasn't killed my projects, so I'll be updating this website more often in the upcoming months. For the time being, I've started a Django page, on which I group my Django notes (like how to install an app on an Apache server, where to find information on X and such. Enjoy!
