Zope

Decided to take a look at Zope.

Very interesting. I wonder if I can convert all of my domains into Zope….I need to do some more research.

It certianly LOOKS like it’ll do what I want, without having to keep re-inventing the wheel in PHP.

OK, enough avoiding the grocery store and my chores….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I’d covert one or two first. Last time I used it, in 2001, it sucked GIANT rocks. Sadly, I can’t remember why specifically, but I do remember deleting it from my computer with an unusual level of vengeance.

    Yeah, that’s about the last time I took a look at it as well.

    At the time I looked at it last, you needed to know Python pretty well to work with it.

    That doesn’t look to be the case anymore, so we’ll see.

    What is it you want to do that you keep having to “re-invent the wheel in PHP”?

    When I use PHP, each site requires a lot of code in the design elements – that is, the seperation of content and design is pretty damn difficult.

    It’s a lot like JSP or ASP in that respect. What I really want is a something I can use to generate sites quicky, easily, and without the need to cuft up my design with content, and my content with code.

    I have some ideas on how to do it, but finding the underpinings is the hard part.

    What I really, really want is a something I can use to easily deploy a site by modifying one or two files for content and the rest be design.

    PHP makes this nearly impossible. Zope has potential. I’m wondering if I need to just bt the bullet and go back to Cocoon and/or an XML base.

    Yeah, I’ve actually been thinking about that myself. I’ve been slowly converting some of my websites to entirely use CSS for layout and presentation but have been wondering if there’s an easier way…
