in thread Writing a web message board from scratch

:)

I guess my question isn't as much to do with the specifics of writing a web message board as it has to do with the general process of beginning a project of about that size.

Let's supose I want to write a widget web application in perl. Noone has ever written a widget web application before so there is no existing code to study, only building blocks that are not immediately obvious how to combine.

I'm after general ideas about how to go about planning the implementation of a widget web application.

I hope I'm making sense. :(

    That also is not true. You need to look around a bit. OpenInteract has widgets. One could argue that the building blocks of Splash in Template toolkit allowed me to craft the new http://www.stonehenge.com design in far less time than I could have from scratch. Both SlashCode and Everything2 have many widgets from which to build bigger pages. And there's the whole HTML::Mason content engine schemes.

    The problem is not that there's not enough models to steal from, but that there are perhaps too many! Please don't start from scratch! See if you can reuse all or parts of these!
