Software presentation

Integral structure and database system

Magicpl is a tool with multiple posibilities, that doesn't depends on thirdties. Is a complete and autonomous product that can be deployed without expensive requirements and with the maximum reliability. With this tool we can create different content managements and research platforms.

Developed applications

Powerful, lightweight and versatile

In less than 5Mb we can have a complete application that works in more than 10 year old machines. All structure and programs are developed with Perl programming language, which interectuates with database plain text files in a quick, transparent and secure way. Our system is modular and we can share a lot of the pieces and another personlize them, developing agile and in an adapted way.

Technical description

Free and accessible tehcnology

We are fans of free software philosophy and open access to ICT, without discrimination or profit, so we license the software under Affero GPLv3. Our system is compatible natively with unix-like machines and can be implemented in any server, allowing import and export data from other repositories and we are working to implement open linked data and semanthic web, who facilitate open and shared knowledge in the Web.

Values and philosophy

Slowtech, female and mature

The project was initiated about 20 years ago and during that time it has been developed almost totally by 2 women. Now there is a generational change with gender balance but we continue developing in a feminist perspective, where important are processes and paying atention to the relational aspects. In this line we are software handcrafters, with the experience and stability of a mature process.

Technical description

Backend

Base of our framework is Perl language, a fast and natively stablished in servers, and consolidated thanks to lots of projects on the Internet. We have our own comprehensive databse system, but we can assimilate other common system (mysql, oracle, no-sql...). We can install it in any machine where there is an Apache server, and is not needed anything else. System can run in old machines and processors, and client only needs the navigator (and network connection, if is not a local one)

Frontend

We are software handcrafters and we used to code everything, as well as templates and javascript too. nowadays we are using some frameworks in the frontend to bootstrap and perform user experience, but we still create personalized designs for every project. We are using bootstrap, jquery, masonry, select2, datatables and other plugins and frameworks.

Characteristics

  • Lightweight system, modular and compact
  • Backend system for administration
  • New environment and tables can be set easily and fast.
  • Backup system, exporting and importing and data accessibility
  • Multi-language
