Webmonkey was a great resource for us when we the Web took off, and it was a shame to see it die out. Today we saw that Webmonkey has been re-born as Conde bought it back and put the content back online.
We have also republished the bulk of Webmonkeyâ€™s vast library of tutorials and reference guides on a wiki. With very few exceptions, every page in the tutorials, reference and code library sections of the site is publicly editable. Weâ€™re using MediaWikiâ€™s open source software to host the content.
Some new things youâ€™ll notice:
* Articles can be tagged and rated.
* Each page has its own backchannel for comments and discussion.
* Registered users get profile pages where they can talk about their projects and list the sites theyâ€™ve built.
* Weâ€™re still in the beta phase. Webmonkey is, and will continue to be, a constant work in progress. If you run into trouble, check the FAQ or drop us a line. Weâ€™ve set up a wiki page for bug tracking, so if you see something that doesnâ€™t quite look right, let us know.
Welcome back. Now you can join the other Web monkeys out there (from Tamarin to ActionMonkey).
