so who's good with web scripting? we need someone to take point on building a simple framework for the ngcicproject website.
the server is centos 6, can run php, perl, python, and I can probably setup most anything else, but I'd prefer any development is in something relatively mainstream and not new wave stuff like node.js or ruby, so I don't need to learn a new language to fix it. I personally would prefer using a postgresql database, but I can manage mysql too. I should be able to take the raw notes and munge them into database format, if you want to go that way, or just run with static .html files for each object, whatever.
you can probably pull a lot of the static text off here, https://web.archive.org/web/20170102050935/http://www.ngcicproject.org
I already have .htm files with images for the entire NGC catalog courtesy of Akarsh, and hope to cobble up a lookup page for that in the next day or so.
