Jayscape started in 1997 as an initiative to get familiar with and again knowledge about webdesign og HTML. Since then both skill, methods, interests, and many other things have evolved and changed. The life and history of Jayscape in broad lines is found in The history of Jayscape.
The code base behind all the content have gone from being hand coded to mostly just the CMS Drupal, and now it's all managed on, in, and with the open-source CMF MODX, that will take care of all the framework functions. Statistics of visits and use of the site are handled by the open-source product Piwik, that works pretty much as Google Analytics with the exception that all data is gathered, processed, and stored on Jayscape.net, without ever leaving the server.
Though MODX and Piwik takes care of the main functions and infrastructure, there are a lot of minor and custom functionality that needs to be built, and will mainly be built upon the powerful basis of the framework. And then there is the content, external components, and services that needs to be developed, integrated and kept up-to-date manually. This is done in an external development and testing environment – minimal code changes are made using Notepad++ and for bigger coding PhpStorm is used, Paint.NET is used for all graphics and everything is tested on a local server using EasyPHP.
