Calum Ryan

Calum Ryan is a front-end developer in Kent, UK and co-organizer of Homebrew Website Club London.


Custom built CMS using PHP and MySQL for interactions and short-form content. There is also a separately-maintained blog using Jekyll.


The custom built CMS has a responsive interface including fields for writing short-form posts, photos, bookmarks, likes and check-ins. This also facilitates sending and syndication to other platforms including Twitter.

Posting via Micropub is possible for a select range of use cases including short-form text or photo posts, check-ins via OwnYourSwarm and Instagram via OwnYourGram.

The posting interface provides a target URL field which allows for sending Webmentions to other websites or platforms like Twitter via Bridgy support.
