I have a website called Surfcali.com. It’s a website that provides tide table information for select California beaches. The tide information on the website is auto-generated by the xtide program which is available on most Linux distributions.

You can install xtide on Ubuntu by typing this command from the Terminal.

sudo apt-get install xtide

Instead of explaining how the website is implemented using lots of words, it’s probably much easier to explain it via video.

So, here’s a short video of how Surfcali.com was put together.
