One of the greatest Finnish inventions, IRC, is still evolving. It even has a working group pushing things forward. I thought I would create a topic with curated open source tools to maybe inspire more people to join #processwire @ Freenode network. I have selected the tools on the basis that they seemed to be under active development. Awesome IRC is a nice list, but too detailed for this context and listing many unmaintained projects.
Desktop clients (cross-platform)
Quassel (has the unique feature that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core)
Multi-protocol Swiss army knives
These should be quite interesting to the PW crowd as hosting web applications is your bread and butter
Glowing Bear (web frontend for WeeChat)
Kiwi IRC (currently being rewritten)
Bouncers (don't lose chat history even though going offline)
Firrre - get a free bouncer for free & open source community networks. See the guidelines: you need a 60-day old registered NickServ account and a Github.com account. See the Freenode guide to nickname registration.
I created a simple telegram bot. What it does? it enables you to save your voice messages and send them later using emojis or keywords in your group chats. Just add @voxgrambot in your group chats and search all the public voice messages available using text or emojis.
If you want to create a new voice message just send a private message to the bot with the command /new . If you want more info send the command /help.
The bot was made using Python and https://python-telegram-bot.org
The backend was made using ProcessWire 3.x and my Rest API helper.
It is an absurd thing but I don´t know how include php files in the modules (include x.php) or use $ _GET and $ _POST. I am creating a chat module and I am not familiar with the API yet. I have seen modules as an example and they don´t use include or post.Thank you.
The code has been deleted because it hurt my eyes
it seems to me there are some PW-users in Germany, but is there a community site in progress? I am using ExpressionEngine for 5 years now. I did several client projects but had difficulties to "sell" EE to clients. ProcessWire could be my next main-CMS. At the moment I rebuild some of my old sites with ProcessWire. Yesterday I talked to a web agency about PW. They said "Well, PW seems to be great but it's unknown in Germany. We do have work for WordPress, Contao or Joomla." I showed them http://webkrauts.de/artikel/2012/processwire but their reaction was like "Ok, nice. But can you do the next project with Contao or WordPress? Because our clients heard about these CMS before."
ExpressionEngine has similiar problems in Germany, but costs money. I worked on a german Community-site für ExpressionEngine, but then EllisLab changed their pricing structure and philosophy. So I'm leaving EE and there will probably never a german EE-site. But what's about a german Community site? Is anybody working on this or would like to participate?
I am in the early evaluation stage for PW.
Coming from the Drupal 7 world and not being a software developer but coming
from the design-side, these are my main goals for a new project:
design ...is everything:
The normal webpages need to be as flexible as possible to design
whereas is ok in the community area to have a more standard layout.
PW is PERFECT for me, Drupal has limits (even with modules), a main
reason for my unhappiness (and yes, I know how to make my own templates)
Organization:I am making a brochure style Webpage, PW is perfect here.
(Drupal plays it's role when having millions of pages, which needs different
organizations, like automatic menus, Taxonomy, views.
Drupal needs 10000000+ clicks for installation. And for every new project
the same mess again. PW can be adapted easily.
Membership fun (forums, galleries, friending):
Drupal is good, PW has nothing like that
E-Commerce: Drupal has unfinished stuff, PW nothing.
I don't blame PW for its limitation with membership management and E-Commerce.
Those limitation is also a strenght and beauty because PW is not feature-overloaded and easy
to handle. (A reason for me to have arrived here!)
And there are pefect solutions for that existing already, like the IP_Board and Magento.
I am now thinking of combining the specialists in it's fields like PW and IP_Board
to have the best of both worlds that would by far more manageable than Drupal
with its modules.
What about using the fine grained Bulletin Board membership membership management
and use this to access users to PW content (and editors and admins to the PW backend).
Isn't it easier to write a "bridge" module than adding membership features
to PW and trying to re-invent the wheel? The IP_Board has a strong API for authentification.
(This site is also using the IP_Board.)
Which means that users register and login to the board to have access to
PW privileges also (through synchronizing the user base or bypassing the PW auth).
That would be perfectly bypassing the PW limit of not having a fine grained
frontend user (users level1,2,3) and backend users (editors, admins).
(I a same way e-commerce functionality could be added with another auth-"bridge".)
Is there something in PW (a module?) I have overlooked that does this already?
Otherwise I would like to post this here as a starting point for ideas and discussion.
Thanks for reading all this. I am very curious about your opinions.
