Guidelines for v1:

The proof of concept (v0) revealed few limitations of a naive category/subcategory/item limit, as well as improvment for futur releases:

  • Need to support semantic informations of category/subcategory (especially for authors, type of text)
  • Need to support deeper templating of the website + customization
  • Tools for easy plugin developpement
  • webhooks (in and out) on update

The proposed solutions are for now to split backend and front end, and give more freedom to the user on the front-end side.

  • backend sails.js for the API side
  • react + redux frontend, associated with RxJS for communication between front and back-end
  • make sure react classes are easily overwritable to support custom element.

Focus for the next version are :

  • Improving the admin interface (rich text editor etc)

v0.1.3 include:

  • Add version table
  • null filter in the API responses
  • add item even if there is no subCat
  • Javascript correction
  • HTML insertion made possible

v0.1.2 include:

  • Insertion / edition of new cat/subcat/item
  • Complete installation script

v0.1.1 include:

  • Archive browsing
  • SQLite database reader (all INSERT is made by the install.php) with category/subcategory/item working
  • Strange taste in UI design


SimpleSubCat aimed for research chaire website, easy to install/use, fairly in early stages right now
