I work from 4 months on web application for ants keepers. I focused mainly on ant keeping journals that provide a lot of data and fill in some content on website.
The application is in a very early beta and functionality are very limited (graphics, too), but the basics are already done and that is why I decided to share it, to get from you some valuable feedback.

Most options are available after logging in.

I will be very grateful for any added journal. Journal entries can be added with a past date.

In the future, I want to add:
- Encyclopedia with a lot of information about the world of ants
- Assistant keeper, that will inform about the different types of things, eg. That it will soon have to prepare a wintering colonies
- Very extensive statistics and graphs comparing their own colony with those of other users or showing whether the colony is growing properly
- Many guides, especially for those beginners

I look forward to constructive criticism and tips. You can do it also on the website (contact page).

I can add my Journal when I find some time.

I'd recommend doing species template that can be used for all ants, with an additional section for comments below.
Pretty much like this:

That sounds interesting. I've done a monthly excel sheet for my young colony (although it's not super accurate but then it is hard to spot whether there are 4 or 6 tiny larvae in a patch, especially with Camponotus and their habit of gluing them together).

On formiculture there are a lot of people who have written pretty good guides, you might wanna contact them.
