While loosing some time over python blogs, i just found this blog written in Webware.
This sound amaizing since i have already done several things like this, using ww and Modeling but i found that using a RDBDM for a little blog ( < 1000 post) isn’t a good idea. Need a lot of works for DB management, developpement and lot of trouble for migration. In this other side, using plain old fashion text file isn’t a good way too since you can’t introduce feature easily .. and writing text file need a lot of work to take care about author and date and so on..
I finally conclude the best way to have something that is usefull ( as a long time process ) it to have a ‘object oriented’ store backend. So i choose ZODB, but MetaKit can be a good challenger too.
Another thing that i found usefull in Zope, is the handly of URL. I don’t need to scratch my hairs playing w/ Apache Rewrite Rules .. and other stuff. I read recently that Webware is to be rewriten.. I hope the dev team will tray to fix this in webware too.
I really think that it should be possible to declare some kind of URL to be handled by a certain Webware Servlet. Perhaps using the same type <=> class mapping as Zope do.. This can of course done w/ Apache Rewrite but i don’t find this really nice, having to tweak apache config while i’m developping is awfull for me. ( Even using apache is a bit crudy for me ..)
