Welcome to the ShowCase web

This web is intended as a showcase for this TWiki's new features.

The Electronic LogBook

The electronic logbook is a TWiki app. which provides a convenient way to enter and display information which evolves over time. Each new item added is summarised on the logbook's main page via a link (Subject) to its own TWiki topic. That topic can contain text, tables, pictures or any other kind of content available on TWiki. Any number of separate logbooks can be incorporated into a TWiki web.

  • LogBookHelp - How to use the logbook
  • LogBooks - The main entry point to the logbooks in this web. It contains a list of (junk) logbooks in this web (created while developing this app.) I hope to provide some better demos in the future (TomCrane).
