About / Contact
This site is powered by an instance of historique, a generic framework for illustrating timelines of events and people, or variations. Examples include:
- Family members and gatherings (birthdays, weddings, etc.)
- Organisations: members and events
- Books, films, or Comic Books Narrative Charts (whose concepts this site borrows from)
Make your own
From the source, historique can be downloaded and installed (see requirements below) and easily configured: titles, description, graphics, language, etc. Then, using the admin pages, events and people can be added. Your site will updated automatically.
You will need a server capable of running Django application and Postgres.
History / Acknowledgements
Historique was originally created to visualise the story of the research institute where I studied, which is due to close down soon. In order to demo the concept, I wrote a generic framework and worked on a couple of instances (Yesstory, and this one).
The technologies used include: Django, Postgres, D3.js, nginx, bootstrap.
If you find bugs, you're welcome to report them in github. This is only a demo, so I'm not going to spend too much time on fixing them unless I have a good reason to.
