About me

Welcome, my name Michal Čihař and I live in Prague (Czech republic). I contribute to various free software projects like Debian, Weblate, phpMyAdmin or Gammu and Wammu. Besides that I've also written some other small tools, which you can find on this website. If you want to know what I'm working on currently, you can check my weblog.

I've created various software during past years, some of these are still alive, while others are not really developed or used anymore:


Weblate screenshot

Weblate is web based translation tool with tight Git integration. It features simple and clean user interface, propagation of translations across subprojects or automatic linking to source files.


phpMyAdmin screenshot

phpMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the World Wide Web. phpMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations with MySQL. The most frequently used operations are supported by the user interface (managing databases, tables, fields, relations, indexes, users, permissions, etc), while you still have the ability to directly execute any SQL statement.
