Here are my ideas to make Zope 3 the most successful framework ever:
Make them love Zope at the very first look:
* Make installing Zope a double-click or one-command-only
* offer a 30 minutes tutorial of programming an useful application
including an audiovisual show for an appetizer that offers a feeling
Enable the beginners:
* Easy to read and understand ‹ but still complete and current ‹
documentation is a must.
* Avoid cluttering everything about Zope across articles, blogs,
mailing lists and wikis. Keep everything available and searchable at
one central location.
I think "Make them love Zope at the very first look" and "Enable the
Beginner" is on the same issue , I consider my self a beginner and
trying to learn Zope I found many resources on google but a little bit
of "chaos" , a better united source from the central Zope (Zope.org) it
is required. I is a shame to know that there is a big help and a big
community but not so well united and organized.
Zope Book 2.7 it is in the same stage it was before 3,5 months ago when
I started to reading it with some example only in DTML when Zope
encourage leaving DTML for ZPT.
The how-to section
have *_only_* 3 post's for the year *2005 *!!!
A Zope editor is a must or to find another way more flexible ! external
editor product it is steel a way but a ugly way in my opinion (no
offense for the product) , to add numbers on every line when coding it
will be a big step.
I don't want to blame the official Zope team , the are running with hard
work for sure. It is just that Zope can do so much thing's compare to
other products out there but important details have been left
I hope the point of this mail is to make Zope better and not to be
considered as an accusation or an attack...
Zope need and can become better :)
