RevIgniter is Fabulous!

We are redoing our www.himalayanacademy.com web site, very slowly, it
will take many moons...
and we are not rushing.
I decided we should give RevIgniter a try. There was a little anxiety in
the air about using something new and different that was not PHP. And
since LiveCode has proven itself over and over again in-house for
production apps, I went out on a limb and convinced everyone here that
LiveCode Server and RevIgniter were going to provide us with
a) "radical flexibility" and
b) fabulous performance
We have had enough experience with XOOPS and Drupal to know that it can
only get better, so no objections were raised. So for the past month
I've been hitting hard on the RevIgniter User guide and plaguing Ralf
with all kinds of questions.
Now as I finally got thru the learning curve and am actually putting
together pages, I can't say how utterly fantastic this is. It's like a
dream come true, like I've been hobbling around in web dev space since
1995 with both arms tied behind my back and one leg broken and suddenly
I can fly.
This is our sand box... and we are just getting started. Not only is it
fast and efficient but it is also just way too much fun.

design two links)
Obviously this is just a skeleton right now, but, with setting far
future headers on our server and using the revIgniter assets helper
cache busting feature, we are getting jaw dropping speed.
Of course there are only two images on the page, but even so the "in the
blink of an eye" has already impressed a number of people.
Thank you, RunRev and Ralf Bitter!
