WebSticky is being developed to provide a web-based repository of web bookmarks (favorites)
for individuals and workgroups. WebSticky is written in
Perl and uses
the MySQL database as a
Three "flavours" of WebSticky are in development or are under consideration for development:
- WebSticky Server - the core version, usable by individuals and workgroups.
The plan is offer a WebSticky service to the public for a small, annual fee.
Most of this system has been built and is now undergoing beta testing. If
you have been issued a login or a registration token, please use the Entrance. UPDATE (2006/11): There are now no immediate plans to release WebSticky as a service; this system is available commercially as a product customised to the user's requirements.
Anyone wishing to evaluate WebSticky should contact the developer for a registration token.
- WebSticky Personal - a simple, single user version. Note that this still requires
Perl, MySQL and appropriate web server software to run, so is probably best suited for users of
Unix-derived operating systems.
- WebSticky Forensic (under consideration) - a variant for law enforcement agencies that will
include mechanisms for detecting changes and the appearance of key words or phrases in pages that
have been 'stickied' and archiving of pages. Interested parties should contact the developer for further information.
- Base server software alive and well - used on a daily basis by the developer and his partner for several months.
- Per-URI sticky notes.
- Ability to assign URIs to user-definable categories, on a many-to-many basis.
- Firefox toolbar created and available. Enhanced version in testing, for release by end of 2006.
- Internet Explorer toolbar created and available. This presents only the basic features of the original Firefox toolbar and is unlikely to be developed further.
- Import of bookmarks from various web browsers - under development.
- Standards-compliant HTML interface,
with attention to compliance with the
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
- Integrated RSS aggregator.
"Aggie the Aggregator"
already exists as a stand-alone prototype, and is available under the same terms
as Perl itself. Feel free to have a play with Aggie!
- Workgroup tools to share 'sticky' resources.
- Produce RSS feeds from sticky note categories.
- Dump data in various formats.
