Good groupware product?
Newbies Posted by Marco on Tuesday April 30, 12:59PM, 2002
from the dept.
What do you think of using Squishdot like a groupware web app to keep in touch an ERP consulting team?

    It could be interesting :-)

    The lack of proper user authentication migth cause your grief, however :-(

    I'd recommend waiting for Swishdot if you can...

      • Swishdot vs Squishdot

        Swishdot will probably get its first release some time this summer.

        Squishdot is still being maintained 'cos lots of people use it!

        As for data from MySQL, I'd install ZMySQLDA and then write some ZSQL methods and a Script (Python) to drive them which would iterate over your SQL data and call addPosting or addReply on the appropriate bits of your SquishSite. If you're like this done professionally, please let me know :-)

    As some note it would be nice to have a similar "meta application" (for online communities) available for Zope:


    What's needed in Zope to compete is an easy to use portal, blog, mailing list, membership, distributed publishing/editing etc.

    This all sort of exists in various Zope apps but needs to be better integrated.

    • CMF ?!

      The CMF already gives everything you ask for, and Plone is a nice shiny layer on top of it that I don't like for irrational reasons I can't explain ;-)

      What more are you looking for?!

    We have used a very old version of BSCW (before OrbiTeam started licensing it) with great success. Nowadays you can download it and use it freely for 90 days. Check it out at http://bscw.gmd.de/
