Magix Illuminate is the umbrella name of a software project, who’s intention is to replace the infrastructure of the World Wide Web, with tools that can better facilitate for a decentralized web, than today’s infrastructure. At the moment, we’re working on an alternative to object oriented programming called Active Events, in addition to an Ajax library and a new programming “language” called pf.lambda. All these concepts can be found in Phosphorus.five. You can download Phosphorus.five here
In addition we’re also working on “System42″, which is a thin layer built on top of Phosphorus.five. If you wish to start development in Phosphorus.five, it is probably best for you to start with System42, and use it as an example of how to use Phosphorus. You can download system42 here
What’s in the name?
The name “Phosphorus.five” comes from the Homeopathic Medicine Phosphorus, and its most common dosage. Phosphorus.five is built around the principle of Homeopathy
If you’d like to get started using Phosphorus.five, then here’s a nice tutorial about how to start developing with Phosphorus.five. No previous programming knowledge is required to start using Phosphorus.five, although, you will have an advantage if you know some HTML and CSS from before. If you in addition know C# and ASP.NET from before, you’ll also probably benefit in the beginning.
