New website framework

Component:Technical aspects
Project wiki:Minguo Community Project

As mentioned many times in several places, the current framework (the software running the website) is temporary. It is very useable and it's up to you all to make the most of it, the way it is intended to be used.

However, there are limitations in the underlying framework that can only be overcome by creating a new framework on which to build the site. This is at the very least a multi-year project. I must invest a lot of my time every single week for a long period of time to make it happen. This explains why I am not always as active as I would like to be. I am very busy developing the next generation tools for this web site.

I'll use this ticket to post occasional progress reports.



Developing this new framework is an ambitious, long term project that will require a sustained effort over a long time to complete.

Let me give you an idea of what it means in terms of time commitment. Last week, I worked just over 85 hours (according to my time keeper). It means slightly over 12 hours work days, every single day of the week (Monday to Sunday).

Of those, I spent 36 hours and 28 minutes developing the said framework. The rest of the time was spent with my regular job, and other regular duties that I must perform no matter what.


This is why I support the idea of people living and working on a basic income.
