Re: Php why must your apps suck so?

Hi friends of good infrastructure,

2007/10/23, Mike McGrath <mmcgrath redhat com>:
        Ok, so there's a ticket for a new news site,
        https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/projects/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/178
Fact: PHP apps have a poor track record.
        Fact: There doesn't appear to be any viable Python CMS's

After reading the requirements stated in the ticket I wonder if it
wouldn't be
the best idea to implement a little application like that in
TurboGears ? I work with TurboGears on daily basis, so I guess it would take about
4 weeks
to develop such a software, followed by another 8 weeks to test it and
bring it
to live.
What do you think about that ?

Not that I doubt your coding skills, but that would be another large set
of unique code that Fedora Infrastructure would need to maintain.  By
using an existing CMS system FI gains from the experiences of everyone
else that runs the CMS we choose.  Plus by choosing an existing CMS we
can spend those 4-8 weeks working on content and making a Fedora theme.

Not to mention there are python CMS's... including a TurboGears one. We could look into whether those are close to meeting our needs and propose patches to upstream instead of completely reinventing the wheel. These are the ones I found yesterday that appear to be in a usable state and active upstream:

http://www.pylucid.org/  -- DJango based
http://www.turtolcms.org/

http://www.pagodacms.org/ -- TurboGears based and has received a bit of press but hasn't made a release yet. Needs evaluation to see if it's ready enough for our usage

Of course, if this were just an excuse for you to kick off your own upstream project, that might work out okay as well :-)
