Neko (lofulah)

Life, the past few days...

Let's see. My last significant post was May 24th, more or less... So starting from the most recent events

So I have my LiveJournal mentor now: whitaker. I should probably friend him here, although chances are, most of our communication will be done over e-mail. I'm still trying to decide if I want to branch off a new journal for the project.

Copying and pasting from the LiveJournal Summer of Code project idea page:
LiveJournal Style Upload
Create a system to upload a style/theme as a zip file of template files/CSS/images/etc, and then convert/compile that into S2. Support MT/Blogger/Wordpress/Smarty templates? Something that's easy for users to open up (the zip), edit, and re-upload. Involves defining archive format, and implementing server-side code to parse and recompile to native formats.

Which, by the way, if you design layouts (xella and selphish, you two come to mind), what would you like to see supported? It's still in the design stages right now - I'm still looking at various styles/themes/layouts and trying to figure out what we'll need to support.

I was originally just thinking it'd only be template files, but my mentor tells me that images may be included... possibly... and hosted "somewhere in lj-land".
