StuffDawg project is a simple PHP-driven application which helps to catalog information about your important material items (such as your computer, for instance)) in case such items get lost, stolen, or otherwise destroyed. PHP mysqli support required, as is MySQL 5.

This version is basically functional. I need to add some better mechanisms of finding your stuff in the database (such as a search feature). There is also NO security mechanisms in place; it was designed to be run on a private network, such as a home LAN. I may add some security later, however, but nothing too extravagant.

One of the reasons I wanted to write this software was to get some experience with BLOBs in a database. Granted, it is slow and ugly (perhaps the Blob Streaming Project can speed things along when it comes to fruition), but I wanted to make sure there was a sort of simple and atomic datastore for the information. This way, all you need to do is run a mysqldump and put that somewhere. Even if, for some reason, the software disappears, you still have a database you can run queries on, etc. Besides, it made things much simpler on code.


To install StuffDawg, you need to do the following:

* Unpack it (you must have figured that one out already, eh? :)
* Create a database to store the tables. Currently, there is no way to define a table-prefix. Maybe I'll implement that later.
* Import the schema.sql file into this new database, for example"

# mysql StuffDawg < schema.sql

* Create a database user for StuffDawg to use, of course.
* Edit classes/db.class.php and configure your database connection information by filling out the $username, $password, $hostname, and $database variables.
* The Smarty Tempalte Engine has been packaged with StuffDawg. If you prefer to use a different version than the one included, edit the file in the htdocs directory and configure to your liking.
* Make sure your web-server has read access to the directories and write access to the templates_c and cache directories.
* Configure yuor web-server to server content from the htdocs directory.

What's New in This Release:

This release adds better image scaling, adds more intelligence to the templates, and fixes a few minor bugs.
