The components of a software are its part that make the system which powers the software work. Lightgates Educational software has the following key components

Front-end dynamic web page

Front-end dynamic web page: the front-end is the user interface where a new user can interact directly with the application logic.

Lightgates has an interactive and intuitive web interface where new users can easily get acquainted with surface, the actions buttons are highly sensitive and lead to instant actions mostly powered by the javascript browser render engine saving the run around time for data engagements and supply from server.

Key buttons are equally spaced for easy distinction, with hover actions and tooltips for assistance in site navigation.

Action class buttons are segmented and grouped into secondary classes carefully designed and packed in a navigation drop-down that is unobtrusive enabling more features and functionalities to be enabled on the web application. Form verifications are on site to prevent cross site scripting and other forms of javascript manipulations that can put user data at risk. Each form input has its verification without a need for backend validation.

Site dependencies are minified to enable site load speed ensuring that users get information with little to no delay irrespective of ip/tcp.

Back-end I/O

The back-end is where application logic is handled before it is transported through the tcp via the osi model and displayed on the

user client device powered by a web browser that reads html css and javascript. The back-end is where all program logic are processed in a server that is connected to a network protocol. This server is configured using a back-end programming language of choice. lightgates backend is powered by php for all server logic, this includes form validation, document page processing, creation, sorting and editing of database, as well as the safe guarding of all user input through encrypted data .

All school data is stored in the database with a key unique per school head, used in extracting each schools data when presented with ID’s.


This component ensures the timely transmission of user data with reload. This is a component of lightgates to ensure that users don’t get interrupted due to actions that require server response
