Hi all in the OCAL list
I've got some enthancement proposal for you. First I would like to show you
I'm working on the OCAL browser for Scribus (www.scribus.net), Open Source DTP
There is functional solution:
And there is one big *BUT*. Current solution of the online OCAL browsing is
based on the HTML parsing. This is very slow and bug vulnerable (webdesigner
can change layout and we are screwed ;)) etc.
I suggest to create auto-updated index file situated e.g.
http://openclipart.org/clipart/navigation.xml with current directory
structure of the OCAL server. I've created some example file for my old
clipart snapshot on my hdd. You can see it (250kB):
Fileinfo in this format allows using timestamps in local cache, nice GUI
I know that something like this stuff will helps me (as developer) a lot.
Any thoughs or suggestions?
p.s.: I've used partly modified Dave Pawson's GPL script
