Colin's Journal: A place for thoughts about politics, software, and daily life.

February 20th, 2002

Yet another huge gap between updates of my journal! I’ve been messing around with alternative systems for managing my site content, including:

  • Zope and in particular CMF. This doesn’t look to promising yet – there’s very little documentation and it’s not easy to see how to create templates so that I can have different pages that pull in other content. It does however feature web based editing – which I think it probably a good thing!
  • Building a Java GUI for my home made system. Currently it’ll display things in a tree and supports plugins, etc – it just do anything useful yet!
  • Thinking about building a simple web based GUI for editing pages in my home cooked system – this might be the easiest route to a good solution

In other news I had a trip back home to the UK recently – which was great! It’s nice to get back every few months and remind myself of what life there is like 🙂
