Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Enhancing forums
All those features sound great and I'm looking forward to seeing a demo.
Regarding including Ajax based code, I would not include it in the main package but rather write a ajax-forums-ui (ala ajax-filestorage-ui). In the near future, when ARIA become available and supported by main web browsers, it would allow us to have an aria-forum-ui for example so the user could choose which UI to use. Having separate packages for the UIs would ease extensibility and maintenance.
Also, I guess that writing separate package for UI will be easier when package types that Dave is working on (I hope so will be available (see http://www.openacs.org/forums/message-view?message%5fid=1482643). -btw, we should include that TIP in the agenda of the next OCT-
I'm thinking on a forums enhancing, not on a complete rewrite of forums using (almost only) Ajax, so I think a few Ajax requests should be too bad.
