Hotglue design is based on a few basic principals:

User Interface

  1. In editing mode pages are rendered identically to viewing mode.
  2. No menus or other parts of UI shall be visible without user's request.
  3. Any newly created HOTGLUE page is always blank.
  4. No menu or interface shall interfere with page elements or change their position.

System

  1. Must be easy to install.
  2. Shall not require a database.
  3. Uploaded content must be easily portable.
  4. Generated HTML and CSS code must be fully compliant to the standards.
  5. No proprietary formats or software shall be used (e.g. no Flash).
