Developing a Website using a software parts library

October 11, 2014

The activity associated with development of a software parts library
for the development of a web-site will be presented here. This will be
an extension of the library used to prepare Programmable Software
Development Environment manual.

This effort was started a long time ago following the development of
the manual software parts library. Its purpose was to eliminate the
need for Front Page. It was subsequently put on hold so that other
more important efforts could proceed.

Mr. Mike is a long time professional friend of mine who has recently
offered to reconstruct my Web-Site. I told him my plan to use my tool
to rebuild my site. He has had difficulties relating to my technology
(It is quite different than normal programming methods) and I am not
really skilled in Web-site design. We both felt that this might a great
opportunity to make the technical connection.

FRIDAY: 2014/10/10

STATUS: As always, a battle-plan becomes obsolete with the firing of
the first shot. Building the sub-task that contains the names and
addresses of all of the HTML pages is not the next task. Header formats
need to be defined in CSS file. I selected some appropriate software
part names and found that I probably needed to update the software
parts for both the font family and color definitions.

DETAIL: Two font families were defined; one by the user for the
web-site body and the other, a generic font family, for the printed
version and the headers in both the screen and print CSS files.
Currently, I see no reason for creating a third font-family.

RESULTS: Easy access to the generic font family data will be needed in
the header software parts. To this end, I added two software parts, one
for the specified font and the other for the generic font, to write a
CSS font family statement into a specified file. These two software
parts have been prepared, integrated into the existing software parts
and successfully tested.

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to prepare an equivalent upgrade for
the color software parts.
