[REBOL] Re: Annabelle Content Management System
From: jasonic:nomadics at: 13-Sep-2007 14:54
Anabelle looks very interesting to me.. Would love to see some
diagrams.. back of envelope sketches, or even better screen cast white
boarding would be great!
Or a screen cast or simple tutorial sequence showing some examples of
It's the information architect in me who thinks visually symbolically.
Have restarted the process of major enhancement to the Vanilla project
- to make it do things I need for happy Collaborative-WikiLo-CMS living :-)
At the moment porting all the vanilla code into LEO to understand,
restructure and document existing code plus my own variations and I
hope those of others.
Running vanilla on Cheyenne now. But not tested yet with lots of files
or lots of use.
So been thinking a lot recently about CMS and Vanilla. How, what, why ?
Rebol database solutions which might integrate well and easily with
Cheyenne-Vanilla. Not sure...
I love/miss the simplicity of old html file system- especially that
paradigm of such an accessible hands-on mapping.
But I recognize there are important features of database solutions -
locking, rollback, backup etc etc.
Have past experience with Zope and ZODB [python]
MySQL is everywhere, but I don't love it at all..
So I am delighted to learn about your 'Anabelle' work.
Wondering out loud how if it can play nicely with Vanilla +/or Cheyenne.
My first impression is that Vanilla could be revised to run on
Cheyenne-Anabelle framework ??
I hope the answer is a loud YES.
Would like to know more about XML use in Anabelle.
I'm looking into Jabber XMPP again and XMLRPC
My design calls for adds several key functions
- remote control
- shared viewing
- live editing
- edit recorder and playback system local or remote
- white board
- CMS update and shared transfer
This is all for TRANZILLA - an alternative net publishing system I am
designing. It's based on musical instrument and patch bay metaphor.
I like Jabber - XMPP because it is open and has many client and server
libraries and implementations.
And I like its use of a long XML data stream.
I've always felt 'chat' is just the tip of the iceberg.
XMPP is a messaging PRESENCE protocol. So all sorts of message passing
can take build on that.
But shared or live editing and content update is one application. I've
done some tests using XMPP in Flash, using XIFF library. Its' now been
ported to AS3 [Actionscript3].
And looking at Adobe Flex/AIR I really like the new dynamic data binding
demos I've seen.
To use sockets or XMPP ?
To do all in Flash/Flex ? I'm trying to to find a nice modular
architecture which lets me enjoy the minimal grace of REBOL, but can
integrate the superb interactivity of Flash/Flex.
