I haven't touched the server-side code. Don't have any content to test it with (no DB).

The web page in the attached zip is meant to make https://api.springfiles.com/newindex.html look kind of like a simplified version of https://springfiles.com/ .

It can run from everywhere (not necessarily the same domain). I've put placeholder text in place of the content description for now.

Acceptable?

Besides lacking descriptions it seems the available maps are not properly tagged according to the terrain types.

Thanks!

Meanwhile, springfiles has spam on the latest results somehow, someone should remove it.

As for new content that isn't associated with tags or github repositories: stuff that we'd upload to springfiles, should we upload on both sites?

The placeholder description was still visible.

I've removed it and added some default thumbnails for the engine and some of the games.

i've switched springfiles.com to the new frontend, thanks a lot, raaar!

the old site is still available at https://springfiles.com/old/

i'm a bit out of ideas how to "migrate" the old page contents to the new page without spending a lot time into it: is it worth the trouble at all?

side note: springrts.com very likely will migrate to a new and faster server soon: afaik 30 april. when this is done i plan to migrate springfiles.com to the same server: this should allow to give access to administrate it, so i'm hopefully not directly needed any more for updates of the springfiles stuff.
