The Grid
« on: October 16, 2015, 10:32:05 am »
How about a website that can design itself based on your wants, likes and design ideas.

It looks interesting although I have no need for a website at present. It may prove useful to someone.

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

I've heard these claims before but I've never really checked out if it works. (I also can't because apparently it doesn't exist yet). It's interesting because I work at a place that designs websites and I'm wondering how long until those jobs are gone too. Usually though, "just tell it what you want" is still something clients are incapable of or reluctant to figure out on their own, and it would be a rare client who says "Here's my stuff, just do whatever."

I wonder if it is completely client-side, or it uses server side scripts to construct html. Once I had an idea to do it all on client with custom scripting language, but I stumbled over search engine optimization (SEO). It seems to me that this candy uses a combination of html, javascript and its own scripting language.

I took a look at the page source of their home page and I found fragments of custom scripting language near the top of the source.

Because of SEO, we are tied to html fragments, so Google or someone can index the pages. Otherwise the page is unreadable to crawlers. Lately, Google announced crawler that understands javascript and extracts informations from DOM dynamically built with javascript, but I don't know how far did they go.
