About This Website

The website is built on a set of open source tools (all of the tools are freely available to use) and utilises open standards. This page credits the projects, organisations and individuals that have contributed towards the site. In many cases work has been contributed back from the applications used for the website to the original projects.

Bootstrap 3

This website is based on Twitter Bootstrap Version 3. The Design layout is based on a relatively vanilla example design, which should allow good mobile browser compatibility and good accessibility

Template Toolkit

TT2 logoThe Template Toolkit is a fast, powerful and easily extensible template processing system written in Perl with certain key elements coded in C for maximum speed. It is ideally suited (but not limited) to the creation of static and dynamic web content, and incorporates various modules and tools to simplify this process. The Toolkit is highly portable, with minimal dependencies or restrictions on how and where it can be used. It is robust, reliable, well documented and freely available as Open Source.

The whole JRT Website is written within a set of Template Toolkit templates.

Catalyst, DBIx::Class and SQLite

The show management information for the theatre is held in a SQLite database, which is managed by the perl Catalyst web application framework. The database is handled as a set of perl DBIx::Class classes — these are also used to generate the show and society information within this website.
