------------------------------------------------------------------------ Notes on Steve's for of mod_virgule: This is not the "classic" mod_virgule code. Mod_virgule classic was used to run Advogato.org from it's creation until Oct 1, 2006. I created this fork for my robots.net website and have maintained it since about 2000. On Oct 1, 2006, Advogato was transitioned to this codebase as well. So I think this version is at least "semi-official" at this point. :-) The main difference is that this code is much closer to being usable out of the box for a new site. There are no hard coded references to URLs or site names, etc. Everything like that can be configured in a handy XML file at run time. Here are a few of the other improvements found in this codebase over the original mod_virgule: -RSS 2.0 support -FOAF support -Built-in RSS/Atom aggregator -Person pages are template based -Diary pages are template based -Project pages are template based -User accounts may be deleted by the administrator -A built in admin page now exists -Function names now follows Apache module guidelines -Compiles against Apache 2.0 (roughly based on James Henstridge's patch) -User list is configurable, paged, and sorted by cert level -Article index page is a configurable template -The sitemap (main navigation menu) is configurable instead of hard-coded. -Forgotten password feature (based on Steve Kemp's patch) -Headers include link elements for RSS discovery (James Henstridge's patch) -Compiles against current libxml2 (Martijn van Beers' libxml2 patch) -Usernames may have spaces, dashes, underscores, and dots -Articles can have topic/icons like slash or scoop sites -Article titles are links to articles -Headers include link element for favicons -RSS exports 15 (the RSS max) rather than 10 headlines -User account page has consistent, easy to read menu layout -Users cannot certify themselves -Project list is alphabetized -Improved, detailed diagnostic info on test page -Posting, replying, and project creation authorized independently based user certification level -Comments added to code to explain purpose -Several compiler warnings fixed -Underlying code now has the ability to delete as well as add db entries -Removed certs are actually deleted -Removed project relations are actually deleted -XML tag for an externally updated field Features that have also been integrated into the "official" codebase: -Permalinks for diary entries -Usernames are passed to Apache and logged -Configurable pass-through directories -XML tag that renders differently based on user login state -Code to prevent duplicate replies to articles -External CSS used to configure color scheme -External CSS used to configure cert colors -Cert levels are configurable -Trust metric seeds are configurable -Removed much illegal HTML -DoS vulnerability in cookie parsing fixed What follows is the original mod_virgule readme file ------------------------------------------------------------------------ This is mod_virgule, the source code to Advogato, http://www.advogato.org/ . I am releasing it under GPL with the hope that members of the free software community will: * Enhance Advogato. * Develop mod_virgule as a generic tool for creating community web sites. * Learn from mod_virgule's design and implementation, which is unusual in a number of respects. mod_virgule is implemented as an Apache C module, using gnome-xml to store the state as a XML files in the filesystem. There is an abstraction layer, however, which means that using a different backend (such as a "real" database) should be possible. Right now, there's quite a bit of stuff in the C code that's specific to Advogato. A medium-term goal is to push most of that stuff into the XML, so the code itself is more generic. There are a fair number of core changes here, so it's probably not a good place to hack in without coordinating with me. Raph Levien 13 Nov 1999 Development continues slowly. There's a new canonical home for mod_virgule in ghostscript cvs. You can access it thus: cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/mod_virgule login [just press 'enter' if asked for a password] cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/mod_virgule \ checkout mod_virgule There's also a discussion mailing list (virgule-dev) hosted at zork.net.
