More updates, new features

The following work completed today:

  • All output is now valid HTML5.
  • A new feature has been added to integer and string fields enabling them to be auto-linked to a target using a regular expression. This is needed for the Landscapes dbs and will be needed for DVPP.
  • Support for user.css and user.js files has been added, so that if they exist, they will be included in the page. This enables easier configuration/customization without editing core files.
  • All select statements now include SQL_NO_CACHE in an attempt to get around server caching (which doesn't actually seem to have worked very well in our case, but is still worth doing).

The Web GUI provides tools for data-entry in as simple and convenient a manner as possible, while also allowing data-integrity checks. The application development sandbox is currently at; and half a dozen UVic projects are already using the codebase. The code is managed through SVN here:
