Published first public version

Marco @mxbe

Today I have published version 2 of the Website Tools, which is the first public version.

The implementation of the first version was started in April 2016, but it was just used internally for the backup creation and update monitoring of my websites and websites I maintain for clients.

The second version is an attempt to integrate my Link Checker and Sitemap Generator into an own platform. Previously they were available as Joomla extensions, WordPress plugins and online tools on my website.

My goal is to build a collection of tools for the technical optimization of websites to improve the user experience and to help with search engine optimization.
