MQWeb use case

25 August 2014

KBC, my employer, is now using my open source project MQWeb to help their developers, who use WebSphere MQ, to get status information from their queues and channels.

An internal website is created with CakePHP to get an overview of all available queuemanagers. Once a queuemanager is selected, AngularJS is used to get information from the MQWeb daemon. AngularJS is also used to turn the JSON data into HTML.

Zumuta! uses Jekyll

27 December 2013

Jekyll From today Zumuta! is using Jekyll to generate a static blog website. I have currently little time to create a dynamic website for Zumuta!. That’s why this website didn’t change a lot. Writing content for a static website is cumbersome. Some days ago, while reading on using project pages on Github, I found Jekyll. Jekyll transforms plain text (Markdown) into static websites and blogs. I started on writing project pages for MQWeb and thought “Why don’t I use this for Zumuta!”. So here it is, the first post written in Markdown format and generated for you with Jekyll.
