Another day another released project. I've just finished developing the web site for Usual Suspects Tattoo Studio.
The site has a gallery and comments system both of which are stored in an XML backend and have CMS functionality. It all runs through a LinqToSql data tier and makes for a light weight web site framework that has no database dependencies.
I've got a lot of future improvements planned for the framework that I intend to use for future sites but for now the following features are currently implemented in the first solution
- JQuery Asynchronous Uploader
- Friendly URLs
- User Comments
- Content Managed Gallery
- Google Maps Intergration
- JQuery Lightbox
- Modified JQuery Lightbox Show Reel
To see this implementation check out http://www.usualsuspectstattoo.co.uk.
Stay tuned for details on future updates to the framework which for now I am calling Nimble.
