Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-387) Django like Admin Interface.
Date Wed, 19 May 2010 14:28:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-387?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12869144#action_12869144

Bob Schellink commented on CLK-387:
-----------------------------------

There are a couple of reasons this is out of scope:

1. This is a big undertaking and none of the current developers have shown any interest in
implementing, documenting, maintaining and supporting it
2. This issue is two years old without any forward movement
3. Keeping the issue open creates false expectations e.g. users keep waiting for this feature
to be implemented when in reality no work is done on it
4. To implement such a feature Click would become a fullstack framework, something that is
outside the scope of a simple Web UI framework

Of course this shouldn't stop anybody from implementing this feature and hosting it at Google
Code or SourceForge.

> One of the most efficient features of Django (no wonder that google selected it for it's
AppEngine) is the automatic Admin Interface. See a detailed chapter in this onlinebook:
> http://www.djangobook.com/en/1.0/chapter06/
> This django approach has a few advantages over other similar solutions:
> - it's not a simple CRUD, but advanced with filtering.
> - it's not generated, but "live".
> - it's complete (even login protection)
> - it's completly customizable (the UI, the behavior, the style, etc.)
> - it's very fast to learn it and very simple: even a non-programmer can "wrap" an existing
database with such and advanced UI in a few minutes just following the tutorials.
> Please add such functionality to Click too (with Cayenne, but please no Spring).
> In case of using Cayenne, it might be even simpler to implement that it was for Django,
since no reverse engineering of the DB is required: the Cayenne config files contain all the
required entities and relationships (and there's also support for "generic entites").
> Also the Django style files could be reused as they are since the license allows this.
> This is something no other Click concurrent framework has (in the javaland).
> Thank you very much in advance,
> Gustav.
