Note that all components will use Datameister, as their database backend, so they can use either a database or an XML for data storage. When it is done it will consist of three main components: Authmeister. This is an authentication system. Implements password salting for added security. Unlike the one in pear, you must specify a data source, and then call the relevant function yourself, rather than just choosing your form. I feel this gives more flexibility. Datameister. A layer over MDB2 and the XML DOM that allows you to use either for data storage. Allows you to essentially query XML data, albeit data that would also be suitable for storage in a table-based database, which is fine for web apps anyway! Formmeister. A system that automatically generate forms that can generate web forms in any colour schemes and layouts. Should provide simple client side validation etc. Will return a dict from the form, rather than you having to manually get information from "post". Will let you make custom forms, or automatically generate them from a datameister model style dict. Webmeister. A website building tool. After authmeister and datameister are complete, this will be the focus of the project: there won't be many further improvements to those two. For content it can link to external websites, use special plugin modules (which are the main point of the tool) or it can include the output of another file (php include basically!) It is intended to use a plugin interface that is as simple as possible. Templating for both it, and its modules should be basically as easy as handcoding a normal website. As of version 0.5, the first major milestone, the project will include the following modules: Blogmeister - A tool for writing your own blog. Pagemeister - A tool for making simple web pages.
