Re: Yet Another Framework: Wareweb

Horray! Welcome to the club! ;)

Ya know, I'm tired of this whole push to get everyone on the same page ;) In a certain sense, it just doesn't matter.

Let's face it, Aquarium has 7500 lines of code (half of which is API documentation). The main application I work on has 79000 lines of code, and that's just the GUI! No, I'm not a wasteful coder, it's a frickin' big app! Guess which one people care about, Aquarium or the app? ;) Why do we spend so much time arguing about the 7500 lines of code.

I guess it's because it has such a large impact on how the other 79000 lines of code are written. :-/

On the other hand, if you need to do as my company did and write a 79000 line application, no one much worries about coding an extra 7500 lines of code so that things work exactly as you want.

Nonetheless, I'm an open source zealot. We share where we can, eh?
