Thanks For Your Patience February 13, 2011

I just calculated the number of lines of code in IsMyWebsite.

This number does NOT include the forums. It does not include any images or theme files or sound files. It also ignores the server coding to communicate with the site, and the DNS system coding.

Keep in mind this is only 6 months (since I started development of 4.0 back in September) and with the exception of about 5% of the code which was kept, every single function has been rewritten and better organized. A lot has been added as well, but 95% of the core has been rewritten, in many cases to be cleaner and shorter.

I’m going to take your guesses before I tell you the real exact number (which is of course rapidly increasing as I finish projects from two posts ago). I would like to take the time to thank all our volunteers here who helped to develop, even only a small piece of the site. Indeed, every part of this site is only comprised of small pieces, built together into larger and larger groups.

So, tell me how many lines of code you think IsMyWebsite is composed of?

I don’t know your coding style but I’ll say 23,000.

11. Joey P - February 14, 2011

Well considering theres can be thousands of lines per section i’d say a good 52,000 for IMW. That’s after compression to πŸ˜›

12. PedroGabriel - February 14, 2011

hm…everyone here think big πŸ˜›
why lines a lot? O.o
Maybe my first post was wrong…15000 lines xD

10,000 with 1/10 of it being white space.

14. antivir2010 - February 15, 2011

15. Cblair91 - February 15, 2011

51,619 lines, and of that 1,916 being white space πŸ˜‰

Lines of CODE.
Whitespace doesn’t count as code, unless Matt is playing a cruel joke and twist on words.

19. Anonymous - February 15, 2011

As many lines of code as needed.

20. Anonymous - February 15, 2011

As many lines of code as required.

21. Jack - February 15, 2011

30,001

22. Johnnycp - February 16, 2011

From my calucations, each page should have about 1.5K of coding. 1500×7=10500 with other sub pages..I calucate somewhere between 15K – 20K(15000 – 20000 lines of code 1/10 will be WHITE SPACE!

23. Nqzdepofltr - February 17, 2011

19,000 By Any Chance?

24. Nqzdepofltr - February 17, 2011

About 19,000 lines maybe?

25. aaron - February 18, 2011

im saying about 100, if you take the coding per page to only one line just spaces.. haha

26. Ashish Patel - February 19, 2011

Million Code.
Since, Just a small site is composed of thousand lines. πŸ™‚

27. mr glasses - February 20, 2011

28. akya - February 22, 2011
