I’ve been very hush-hush about this but there’s this web project I intend to start – it’s called Simplicity. I’m going to be writing in Asp.NET but just for the fun of it I’ll write a PHP version when I’m through.
If anything, Simplicity is going to be anything but simple. I’m using plenty of Ajax – which I don’t know one bit about. I ordered a book on Ajax from Amazon and I’m contemplating orderig one about Web Sevices. The thing is, I’m running out of my supply of cash – and I haven’t gotten a job yet. I don’t want to go beyond a certain level – I’ve spent only four weeks here and I’ve spent more than $1000 and my budget isn’t helping any. I intend to buy a laptop and more programming books within three weeks. I hope it works out.
Back to Simplicity – the main thing keeping me away from using PHP at this time is the handling of web server controls. I intend to write a library later that handles that but that’s not my concern now.
The obvious problem I have is themeing. I had that problem with the Asp.NET AuthWare version. I had to use dozens and dozens of repeaters – I mean, it’s not funny.
My current solution currently is to write a web control library that picks certain templates from a database and displays it according to “rules”. I hope it works – do you have any
