Forum OpenACS Development: Response to who can help newbies using templating system

Posted by Dave Bauer on

I am curious about your desire to have end users programming templates. I think what you are really looking for is an end user application built with OpenACS. This really requires a programmer. OpenACS is a web application development toolkit. Most of the resources of the community go to making it a better developer's toolkit. What we don't want to do is make one user interface for end users. Well, it would be nice to have a good default UI, but the focus of OpenACS is to make a tool that a programmer can build an application with.

Please feel free to ask any questions, I don't want to discourage you at all, I have been learning quite a bit about the templating system, and I will help in any way I can. I just wanted to let you know that you need a programmer who knows Tcl to customize OpenACS.
