Yeah, but where is Python support for Slash?

  • ...Although many on the Zope mailing list don't want Zope "polluted" by adding support for Perl. I "discovered" Zope a few weeks ago and it seems to be a really cool system. Perhaps I've been living under a rock, but the whole idea of a "web application platform" on which you can build services, like a (slash|squish)dot, is powerful. I find Zope's security model particularly powerful. Is there anything like Zope already implemented in Perl?

    Zope was actually the reason that I was planning to learn Python. Now I'll have to wait for Python's next Killer App ;-)

    On a serious note: does anyone know if Zope supports Vignette StoryServer-like caching? That is to say, pages can be generated by emulating 404s, and then drop a static copy into place once they've been generated. This is really StoryServer's big feature since later hits on that page require no code be run. Many other caching systems only cache data, not pages.

  • You mean, aside from Slash [slashcode.com]?
  • My perception is that Slash is a weblog application. Zope, on the other hand, is a *platform* on which to build things like slash.

    I guess this "platform" vs. "application" thing can be confusing. For instance, people sometimes think of Mozilla as a browser (which is an application) when it is really a platform that makes it easy to build a browser.

    I think slash and Zope are different too; slash being an application, and Zope being a platform.

  • You might want to take a look at Jellybean [sourceforge.net]. It's still very early in development, but it's coming along pretty well.
  • I see no significant difference between the two. Specifically, what makes Slash an application and Zope a platform?
  • I'll attempt a comparison of Zope and Slash, but must disclaim the expertise to do a thorough job, and I may be flat out wrong about some of these things. I only know a little about Zope, and don't know much at all about Slash. Although I'm pretty much a Perl zealot, I find a lot to admire about Zope. I'm sorry if this sounds like a sales pitch...

    • Slash is a weblog application written in Perl that depends on other applications (a database, a web server) to deliver it's functionality.

    I believe that HTML::Mason has this feature.
  • There are many things similar but not as complete. The ones that spring to mind are:

    Iaijutsu - early development (working code but not released at all) http://sourceforge.net/project/?group_id=417

    Also HTML::Mason is popular as is HTML::Template and Template Toolkit (all on CPAN)

    And who knows, there are probably others...

    You can use squid to do it more or less automagically [zope.org].
