Working on a feature not yet requested. A relational database. Data from that will feed the web content and it’s a basis for other things. Later I’d like to have multiple users, especially for companies to update their job postings etc.
The first application will be lists accessible through the web serving a purpose similar to the someawe map by @someAWE_cb , but in a format which I think is better suited.
The job board as I made it with tools provided by wix takes too long to load and it contains redundant information.


Let me know if I can help by providing the content in a format that might be easier to parse into a database. I believe mindmeister (where the map is hosted) provides some export options/cb


Well I’ve got a mysql database running in docker and access to it.
Wanted to have an apache server on the same server as the forum (but this would require some more weird changes to discourse to share the port) to try to get some of the database to display on a website… no use to fill a database if the content can’t be displayed…
Not sure if I can handle this stuff without becoming a sysadmin / webdev.
