and the Client…

Forgot to include something about the client side of things. The only current client is written in Python, but future clients will be coming.

I originally thought the next client would be Java or perhaps an Ajax-ish client, but I’ve been won over by Adobe’s Flex.

So what exactly does the client do besides connect to a server? Clients subscribe to different parts of the ‘outline’ stored on the server and receives updates immediately when a change occurs. This is inspired by Dave Winer’s OPML Editor and its version of ‘Instant Outlining’.

There will be a future post explaining how and why outlines are stored on the server, how subscriptions work, security, etc. For now I’m just getting the engined warmed up…
