Report for the Exam Assignment: "The Asthma Blog" (June 2011)
The asthma diary is an imortant tool for any asthma patient. Today most asthma patients have to enter observation data with pen and pencil. Could an online blog do this in a better way? In this project I suggest that an online asthma diary could be a better solution. As a demonstration I develop a prototype by CakePHP.
About this page
This page is a prototype. You can access the Asthma Blog by clicking the menu above. If you want to try it out, you should create a new user.
The webpage is made with free open source programs: baked with CakePHP on a LAMP-server. After baking end editing the files were uploaded to this webserver. Images are made with the GIMP. The graphs e.g. in the "posts" section are just plain div-tags - CSS styled to size via PHP and values from the database. Loops and a homemade CakePHP helper did the trick here...
A prototype is a visualization of an idea. In "the real world" (where ever it may be) the user data should obviously be private. Users should be able to use the site with different access types acoording to their role. Please refer to the user scenarios in my report.
