4JC.IN is useless for anyone but me, but it’s still useful for me. A simple tool, a weekend project, and a little exploratory on the web design side of things. The point is to have ready my own HTML bootstrapping system. With a quick call from the web directory, I can have everything I need downloaded and setup. The command is short, and easy to remember.
curl 4jc.in/to | sh
Yes, I’m running a remote file from the shell. Evil me!
Really though, it’s simple. The name is meaningful in several ways, too.
- JC.IN sounds like Jason. Putting the 4 in front makes it “For Jason”
I eventually plan on adding some additional things. Zend Framework download and set up with some basic things I always include, other libraries I’ll pick up. Font’s I like. A basic template for HTML. robots.txt, humans.txt, and privacy.txt files.
All sorts of little things.
In the grand scheme of the web, 4JC.IN doesn’t do anything for anyone. It’s a tool for me to use. But it was fun. It is fun. It’s a place to put the tools I use. I may link them into git, so a quick command will fetch me the latest files and what not from a git repository. I don’t know. But it’s easy. And I like it.
