Jifty Backend Abstraction

Leader: Kirsten Jones
Interested: Rick Scott Michael Schwern (hey, its my job)

Jifty is a very nice web framework, and it could easily be our response to Ruby on Rails. One thing it doesn't do well, quite yet, is act as a front end for non-database content. For the perl foundation website, I need to be able to consume a web service as the backend, but it would also be cool if we could make Jifty able to consume:

  • Flat files
  • An svn repository
  • Any kind of web service

Basically, make the backend data acquisition pluggable.
