this WeCode.org project of mine is stack based, it's like RevNET (yes,
I even borrowed the stack rect), it can be installed as a plugin, but
it also sports a web interface (thats easy when you own the RevHTTPd
where it's running) so that one can check news from remote sites. The
Idea is that working users use the stack interface to manage their
project, but we left a web interface for possible lurkers and for
making announcements for each project.
The idea is pretty dumb, WeCode is made of modules for each project:
* Wiki module, each project got a wiki where team members can post
stuff, they own a private wiki for their own discussion and a public
one for announcements. (it's a revHTTPd based module)
* File repository for droping stacks and files, I am trying to make a
server interface compatible with Magic Carpet here, so that one could
use MGC to manage the files. (it's a RevFTPd based module)
* Chat with users, (Based on RevChat by BvG)
Database is old'mySQL running at WeCode.org. Pretty dumb, we own all
the tech needed to invent this thing without creating new protocols. I
want to leave the wiki and the files available at the web interface so
that possible lurkers or people without the plugin or people using
dreamcard can see the projects too...
The comunication between client stack and the wecode server is thru
simple XML-RPC call, again, RevHTTPd based and 2.5 XML-RPC based.
is now just a matter of glueing everything.
