Built with...

Probably old news but I stumbled across Built with today while trying to find out if a particular company used a particular CMS or shopping platform (there were no obvious giveaways in the source code).

Being a curious fellow I wanted to see what it dredged up about my own site – which uses the meta generator tag to eliminate guesswork – and it was pleasingly (worryingly?!) accurate about every little facet of my site, from hosting provider, platform/system, email provider, SPF, the works.

Clicking on the CMS hyperlink in the report and expecting to be transported to textpattern.com, I was actually given a (brief) excerpt list of what it claims are over 2000 other sites using Txp. A couple seemed to be red herrings, but most I looked at were indeed alive and running our awesome CMS. Some were pretty old versions, but a fair few in the list were running the stock theme from 4.6/4.7, which shows just how good it is that people feel comfortable enough to use it verbatim. Full props to Phil.

I’d have to sign up with the site to get the full list, but just thought it was an interesting resource in case anyone doesn’t know about it yet.

If you scroll down, Built With also thinks you are using Wordpress. My guess it has something to do with the Hueman Template Port you are running.
