No offense taken... I often feel it's a waste of time myself, until I
remind myself that I've been meaning to study up on this stuff (AJAX,
Graph Theory, etc.) I won't be so busy in a few months, and I'll be
devoting more time to software projects like this, especially if I go
back to school. I also have a longstanding interest in developing
better document formatting/publishing software... this isn't like my
short-lived interest in Forth :-)
This CMS is intended to be simple and understandable, with only a few
well-supported dependencies (Python 2.5 and SQLite 3), hierarchical
organization, and a spartan markup notation, with hooks for alternate
document formats. Another requirement is that the markup converter
could be rewritten in C.
Now, I searched and asked around a bit, but I couldn't find a
_finished_ CMS to fit that description... if one turns up, let's use
it... otherwise I'd like to offer my own simple CMS and build up a
sizable user community so that it doesn't depend on me for support.
(Although I'd be glad to support it if I can make a decent buck!)
