Hello you all,
if you remember, a few months ago I had posted here, looking for help for adapting our existing control panel to the open-source model.
If you go to our development site (http://www.clicdev.com) and have a look at the photo gallery (link on top), you'll see that we're actually going somewhere.
Alas, the project is still not nearing completion.
What we have achieved so far is:
- a complete rewrite of the client-server structure
- now heavily relies on a database
- create/edit accounts/users
- edit dns zones
- an elaborate privileges system
This is very powerful AND flexible.
Thing is, the rewritten version allows you to add modules in any language of your choice. The main backend still is a compiled C program, however most new modules are written in PHP.
I wish to thanks our current contributors, who are the core of the effort; however, at first, there was more of us. But it turns out that many people were more interested in coming up with a nice name for the CP than writing actual code.
With the new code structure, I hope that more people will be interested in actually coding modules for the project.
You must know that we've already done a lot of work and this is *not* vaporware.
So, if you're interested in taking part in the adventure, please contact me. Only if you are SERIOUS about coding!
ps: and some dimwit bought the domain name ('butterflycp.com') the very day when we decided on that name...so if anyone has a suggestion for a new name...
ps2: Since it's open-source, I have posted here. However, I am really not 100% sure that it's what I should have done. In that case, I wish to thank the mods in advance for transferring this thread to the according forum (sorry for th extra work, guys).
