Series Land Rover Parts

Colophon

Series Parts is developed & maintained by Morgan Aldridge and hosted by makkintosshu.

The site is coded to the upcoming HTML5 and CSS3 web standards. A custom PHP engine running on Mac OS X Server powers the whole deal. The client-side JavaScript niceties were built on top of the jQuery library and html5shiv helps IE “recognise and style the HTML5 elements.” The aggregator engine utilizes the eBay API as well as the SimplePie RSS/Atom parser library. GeoLite data by MaxMind is used for server-side geolocation. The flag icons are by Mark James. Local mapping is implemented with the trifecta of the Google Maps JavaScript API v3, MarkerClusterer, and Overlapping Marker Spiderfier, plus a dash of spin.js.

All HTML, PHP, CSS, and JavaScript was hand-coded in vim on Mac OS X.
