Cataloging everything tiki we love
mytiki.life aims to be a catalog of everything tiki. Think of it as a tiki search engine!
These sites have been instrumental in educating those new to tiki. They were amazing resources that contained so much valuable tiki knowledge. Unfortunately given the age of the sites and their underlying software it's become apparent that there is a high risk of going away and their knowledge being lost.
We want to build on what they achieved; organising more than just mugs and information scattered through forums into a searchable database full of user contributions.
Good question… This site is built using CraftCMS built on top of the open source Yii PHP framework. CraftCMS is a commercially supported CMS with an easy upgrade process. It's built inline with modern web development standards, it's fast and easy to customise.
Contributors can export their data at any time. Database backups are also made nightly and stored for 30 days. Weekly backups are stored for 52 weeks.
Images, files and other assets are stored on Amazon S3 and served through a global CDN. Images are resized on the fly so they are the perfect size for your mobile device or high res desktop screen.
Like any search engine we've parsed 1000's of pages, added them to our DB and hand curated them. We've collected data from:
In all cases where content has been crawled from other sites we link back to the original source with attribution.
Great… contact us and we'll get back to you!
