getButterfly Logo getButterfly code wrangling since 2005

I’ve been working a lot these days to complete several big projects, and a handful of smaller ones. They’re all related to PHP and optimization. I’ve been thinking of a switch-based PHP preloading technique, which I’m trying to implement in a couple of projects.

What I’m trying to do exactly is update my CMSs and make a general purpose one, with modules, plug-ins and as many options as possible exposed to users. Let’s pretend I have a job CMS, let’s say (em)phasis JMS, which is about to get updated pretty soon. While it needs to have all the required options, it should be simple to manage (via source code) and easy to load. All those nice features should be able to load only if requested by user.

The switch-based PHP preloading technique is itself a framework to be placed inside any CMS. I might go as far as providing hooks like those from WordPress and be able to plug them into any kind of framework.

This is currently in a planning stage, with mockups and sketches. I hope they’ll move from the planning board to a sandbox CMS soon.
