WHiMP is the main-window of the Build-In-Constructor tool, a small-sized, and very simple to-use
“interactive” web-content-creation-environment that can be used by anyone to build his own websites
even with little or no knowledge in programming.
The WHiMP is based on three basic structures (a “core-system”, a “window system” and a “browser system”)
that could be extended as much as the user wants.
WHiMP is structured in this way to avoid “code-bloat”. It allows the user to extend the core-system in
an easy way. In this way it’s also possible to reuse sections of the code, and change the existing sections,
if the user wants so.
It is, in our opinion, important to keep the code “clean”. This is especially important when it comes
to the core-system, to prevent unnecessary code bloat.
In comparison, many other (free) tools have something similar (like Python and PHP scripts), but
are less structured and have more code-blocks.
WHiMP has an image-browser, a text-browser, a menu-system, a calculator, a calendar, a databrowser,
for editing a wiki-text, a digital-photo-manager, a “test-suite” and many others. There’s even a
HTML-compiler and a “change-log-tool”, but that’s for the users to decide.
WHiMP is developed by my company, “Heartlich Media GmbH” (www.heartlich.net).
The first version of WHiMP was developed in 2003-2004. The goal was to have a simple tool for
the WordPress community. Today, WHiMP can be used to build a great number of types of websites (e.
g. personal or commercial blogs, forums, calendars, event-management, photo-galleries, music-
listings, documents-managers, CMS, news/feed aggregators, etc.).
The “PHP-WHiMP” Version was
Hiawatha is a free and multi-platform installable web server which is
usually found in Linux distros. It is a mature, scalable, fast,
lightweight and portable webserver based on the Apache HTTP Server.
Hiawatha is not a standalone application but an HTTP server made of a
set of modules. It is written to be able to easily replace other
standalone HTTP server such as nginx, lighttpd, or Apache. It is
similar to Apache in its development and philosophy.
The Hiawatha web server is entirely written in C, and uses the C++
library for CGI (interpreted/embedded mode). The kernel of the
server is small and minimalistic. It is available on all architectures
and operating systems.
The Hiawatha TCP/IP module also has been written in C and can be used
by other modules or applications as well.
Hiawatha can support a large number of CGI programs thanks to its
capabilities. It is fully compatible with the FastCGI protocol.
The Hiawatha web server can handle requests from both local and
remote clients. The Hiawatha web server is compatible with standard
CGI extensions that are compatible with most web servers.
The Hiawatha web server also provides four plugins to manage file
systems through the Webspace module.
Hiawatha has been tested with PHP applications.
If you are to use the PHP interpreter modules for Hiawatha,
first have to ensure that the Apache module suEXEC is enabled.
Hiawatha is distributed under the GNU Public License.

WHiMP currently supports Windows, MariaDB, PHP 5.4.x and PHPMyAdmin
WHiMP is a multi-platform (Windows, Linux and Mac) solution to offer an easy way to switch between these platforms on a single Windows system.
This project was started on my first personal computer in 1996 (see Download Website for exact time)
WHiMP is still a project of its start but all features of current solutions are included.
WHiMP consist of the following applications:
· Hiawatha Content Wrapper
· Hiawatha Manage Application
WHiMP content wrapper will wrap the content of other installations.
All users can download Hiawatha and install it on their computers to use Hiawatha content.
WHiMP will try to start automatically.
If you have any problem with WHiMP you can contact me at email@example.com
I am the developer and maintainer of Hiawatha.
Hiawatha is a stable server, which offers to any developer the possibility to get the jigsaw puzzle of the database out of a large number of different servers and combine it on a single server.
What is new:
• Support for both Hiawatha and MariaDB
• Output formats of MariaDB dump
o MySQL format o XML format
• Differencies between versions
• Automation to get the Hiawatha Content Wrapper working
I developed Hiawatha for myself to learn how to combine different servers and to learn about the new MariaDB.
I have tested Hiawatha with PHP, Node.js, Python and Java. It works great on all.

from the 2005 PHP Conference.
WHiMP is based on the following projects:
· PHP (Non Thread Safe + FastCGI)
The MariaDB project provides a user-friendly interface to the
MySQL database. PHP runs over the top of MariaDB, and it’s the most
popular web scripting language on the planet.
Hiawatha server is an application like XAMPP for Windows. It includes
the MariaDB database server and a web server.
PHP (Non-Thread Safe + FastCGI) is an extension of the
Common Language Runtime. It is a highly interactive, object-oriented,
scripting language that has also been extended to support databases.
PHP runs over the top of the FastCGI protocol.
phpMyEdit is the standard HTML/JS WYSIWYG editor for PHP.
phpMyAdmin is a server-side web application that handles the administration
