snews in python
« on: January 02, 2013, 03:25:10 PM »

Hi there

Is there any interest in having a port of snews in python (i.e. same mysql DB schema but front end written in python) ?
Anyone willing to contribute to such port ?

Thanks

While I think it would be awesome to see more Python web development, I have to ask, why Python? Second question would be why keep the existing DB schema, when you are looking at an almost a complete rewrite of the system?

Personal taste, mainly. But the end in mind would be to port that code to google app script... some day

I'd like to keep the DB as is so that I can reuse the website content I have. The complete code rewrite you're talking about is actually quite strait forward. Mostly a syntax change. I have 1/5 of the code ported already.
