 I guess bits of the 2.0 slashcode do the job nicely, what with being
 TT based and all.

If you're into XML and AxKit, I think that Matt Sergeant has made the
stuff he uses for take23.org available.

sound type=mailbox_rummage/

Ah yes, AxKit-NewsMaker.  Available for download from:

http://axkit.org/download/

I haven't actually looked at how easy it is to work with, but it'll
probably require fairly good XML familiarity.

 Why do all these things have to look like Slashdot? It that now the
 ONLY metaphor for these things. I know Nielsen would approve of the
 familiarity part but...

'cos they're all based on the Slash code? Which isn't all that amenable
to total reskinning.

Oh look, that slashcode 2.0 uses Template Toolkit...

Some guys out here in Brizzle want to do Yet Another CMS. Are there
any frameworks out there they can plug together to make something
plausible?

I guess bits of the 2.0 slashcode do the job nicely, what with being
TT based and all.


Any other offers?

It is interesting that this is the conclusion that we came to at work while

No, that's not what I was implying. But yes, that's debateable.

One of his usability arguments is that if you're trying to build a
usable site, you really want to make it work like all the others. And
slashdot have their niche sewn up.

Add it to the all $things suck list.
