About Srila Prabhupada Archive

Many years ago, we set out to make a website for reading and studying Srila Prabhupada’s books, mostly for our curiousty and interest. We didn’t know programming (and still don’t to be honest), but simply extracted the original books from VedaBase and put these into a wiki software. I mean, how hard can it be, right?

We looked at what others were doing with similar projects, then implemented whatever we thought would be functional, from a long list of open source plugins. Our wiki software is based on files in folders. This makes the wiki super fast, while giving us full freedom how to edit files. Basically, the server could just mirror a folder somewhere, right? That’s where git (and GitHub) comes in. Collaboration between many, both centralised and decentralised.
