Scoop Update (Now With Extra Tarball!)

I mentioned a while ago that I was working on a free ([speech|beer]) slash clone, called Scoop. Contrary to popular opinion, whining about slash doesn't take all my time, and it's progressing steadily. Take a look at the state of Scoop, and read on for the current status.

Update: There's a tarball available now too. Grab it here: scoop-0.2-alpha.tar.gz (22876 bytes)

Things that work:
  • Story display: summaries, titles-only, and full-text
  • User account creation, and email confirmation
  • Login/logout
  • Comment display, fully threaded
  • Backend Variable/block management
Important things that DON'T work yet:
  • User preferences
  • Comment posting
  • Story posting
  • Polls
  • Most things that require input of any kind, really. :-)
My overall plan of attack has been generally to try to get "display" functions working first, using data pulled from kuro5hin's database, and then to work on the "putting data in" bits. I think I'm just about at the point where input will start to appear. Comments and user preferences will be first, followed by story posting. I think at that point, it'll take over as the primary kuro5hin.org codebase.

Anonymous CVS access remains at:

CVSROOT = :pserver:cvs@cvs.kuro5hin.org:/cvs
Password: cvs

along with webcvs at cvs1.ompages.com. And once again, the tarball right about here: scoop-0.2-alpha.tar.gz (22876 bytes)
