LambdaCms (Haskell based cms)


LambdaCms is an open source CMS in Haskell, buildon top of the Yesod web-application framework. All of Yesod’s features are available to LambdaCms sites. The main features of LambdaCms include:

  • Performant: we measured 2-10ms response times for dynamic content (HTML), w/o caching.
  • Responsive admin interface: works well on tablets and phones.
  • Modular: LambdaCms extensions using Yesod’s subsite mechanism, extensions use Cabal’s dependency specifications to depend on eachother.
  • Support for SQL databases that Yesod’s persistent supports (Postgres, MySQL, Sqlite).
  • Out-of-the-box support for authentication strategies that yesod-auth provides (BrowserID, Google, Email), and extendible with yesod-auth plugins (such as the ones for Facebook and OAuth2).
  • User management.
  • User roles.
  • Fully programmable route-based permissions.
  • Admin activity log that extensions can plug into.
  • Allows internationalization of the admin interface.
  • UI strings of the admin interface allow overrides.
  • Basic media management capabilities (from the lambdacms-media extension).

Version specific API documentation can be found on Hackage:

Besides the README’s in the various repositories, and the documentation on Hackage, we maintain some tutorials —providing guidance through several common tasks— which can be found in the section below.

From reading the documentation, LambdaCms isn’t a full featured cms, yet, but if you are interested in Haskell, this may prove to be the perfect CMS for you!

Hshtags (Search Engine)

Hshtags (Search Engine)

At this point you can select to search hashtags on Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Twitter and Vimeo. Which means, of course, that you have to authorize Hshtags to see your posts, friends, post for you (which I have never understood), etc.

How useful Hshtags will be depends on the subject. I can’t imagine very much content of interest on Facebook, Flickr and Instagram about semantic integration. Could be, not to blame the medium, but it seems unlikely.

For my purposes, searching across both Twitter and Vimeo for “popular” hashtags will be useful (as popular as semantic integration ever gets).

More useful to me would be a search engine that reported tags used by blogs with links back to the blogs using those tags.

That would be really useful in terms of defining communities and using terminology that is widely accepted. Even if just WordPress, Blogger, and other major blogging platforms.

One very nice aspects of Hshtags, the registration is in a large enough font to be easily readable!!! It’s a small thing but deeply appreciated none the less.

Effective #hashtags

Friday, February 24th, 2012

I ran across trying to be more effective with Twitter posts about topic maps.

If I post on the graph database Neo4j, which hashtag should I use: #neo4j or #Neo4j?

In efforts to communicate, saying that listeners “need to be educated,” a phrase from #semanticweb (SemanticWeb, semanticWeb?) circles, is a poor strategy. If your goal is to communicate.

Speakers should use words and phrases listeners are likely to understand.

For Twitter, that means using the most common hash tags for any given subject.

Otherwise you are sexting with different key combinations than everyone else.

Has to be frustrating. 😉

Oh, the numbers:

Variants: neo4j:79% Neo4j:21%

Variants: semanticweb:66% SemanticWeb:31% semanticWeb:3%

With some research you can improve your Twitter communication skills.
