    What technology / frameworks are used by the Hiveworkshop? E.g. For a webapp I might use JSP's for the frontend, and have a Java RESTful backend to handle the actual computations. For storing data I could use a Postgresql database service. All this is run on a Linux remote machine.

    I see that some of the resources ended in .php, however they don't actually have to be php files (I could have my webresources look like newthread.jass for example, and underlying it could be a Python script).


    Follow ups:

    What is the cost of keeping the Hive up per month?

    Is the Hive maintained and developed by a single person (Ralle)?

    Is there any plan for monetizing the Hive (I see there's no advertisements on the site)?

    I'm assuming LAMP or LNMP.

    The backend is almost entirely coded in PHP as that is what the forum system is made on.

    ok?

    It's the first thing I install when I got chrome on any computer.
    Makes it easy to forget it exists since it was there all along for me. Sure it's same for others.

    Wow it is really unbelievable how Ralle maintain the money on this site.

    Is there any real life advantages that Ralle gets maintaining this site that is equivalent on spending money for this site aside from friends and appreciation?

    Money nowadays is so hard to earned and with less amount of players to donate I am really amazed on this site.

    Could you show me the numbers how this site is maintained financially?

    The ads cover it for the most part. I have always wanted to remove the ads though.

    No matter how many extra things you do the ads will still benefit.

    It's a really small ad anyway and a lot of people have ad blocker.

    Ralle needs to accept cryptocurrency :thumbs_up:
