Description: note: currently broken while refactoring.

I have started to develop a new user interface for Perlmonks based on the ExtJS Javascript library named ExtPM. It is by no means finished, but under active development, so it might be broken when you you look at it.

Add this code your free nodelet:
  • 0.01 - <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Navigate to this node

    hmmm, I tried this out and nothing changed. What is supposed to happen? Can you give us some ideas of the feature set?

      Once you've added the link to your free nodelet, and go here, the interface should be repalaced by something that looks like this screenie

      The goal is to create a rich ajaxified (and hopefully faster) interface, for at least the everyday tasks of using Perlmonks like browsing and composing nodes and chatting. Think Perlmonks 2.0

      As it is, the software is in draft-mode. i plan to create a plugin mechanism for the gadgets in the accordion on the left, so others can step in easily.

      Regarding your not working: I'm testing atm on firefox only. could you fire up firebug and watch for errors or failed requests?

      Update: Links fixed

      Nothing changed for me either and I'm running on Firefox too. Plus the screen shot is broken at the moment.

      I'll be happy to watch it with firebug too when I can see it working. :)

      Revolution. Today, 3 O'Clock. Meet behind the monkey bars.

      I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

    It looks like it is triggered by going to this link, that loads it up, though it is still loading and on the second load it does nothing. ;)

    The nodes below support ExtPM in various ways and are neither subject to vote or to comment on. Thank you.
      • And so it came to pass.
      • Hey, something icky crawls down your back.
        And so it came to pass.

        I personally believe people should f**king stop to downvote your nodes: I know you probably can't bother the less, but it must be somewhat frustrating, given that you're spending your efforts in a project aimed at the community. PerlMonks may not strictly need it, but it seems interesting and it should be respected anyway!

    I just add a look (going from you homepage, as previous links were not working), and I must say I'm pretty impressed. It's a whole new way of accessing information on Perlmonks.

    If it could be of any help, the error console of Firefox was full of this error:

    Warning: Error in parsing value for property 'size'. Declaration drop +ped. Source File: Line: 0
