The very first website that MIST ever got, built with the most basic of tools and a lot of love

The second version of the MIST website was the first proper full-stack website. Based on the MERN stack, it utilised reusable components on the frontend, a backend NodeJS server, and a database to store all website related data. Adding a unique touch to it was the geek and non-geek modes. The geek mode gave a terminal interface access to the website's data while the non-geek mode was for, well, non-geeks.

Keeping in tune with the industry, the third version was built on NextJS and as a result was faster and snappier. A dark themed, yet brightly coloured website with a separate alumni section was the highlight of this version. Even though the geek mode was discontinued, this version had a redesgined and organised Cybermanipal section which catered to cyber news from around the world.

The fourth version (the current deployment) saw the codebase being shifted to typescript, utilising the newer and better NextJS version—and its corresponding components—getting a sleeker desgin, lots more content about the club, and a general revamp. As the website grew in size and number of hits, animations were added for the first time on the MIST website, for better aesthetic, even as a major part of the serverless functions was retained from the previous version.
