Currently the site features a blog (powered by Drupal) with some PSYC integration efforts underway.
The Master Plan(TM)
in a random instant of insanity, I thought of making psyc.us into sort of a gmail on psyc.... webmail+smtp+imap+psyc+jabber -- complete with a email@example.com address and of course psyc://psyc.us/~yourname
maybe even throw in some blogging and web publishing stuff for good measure...
here is the initial discussion (chat log) ...feel free to add your thoughts:
[15:37:50]20after4 says: what do you guys think about a psyc.us service including email -> psyc gateway (with webmail, imap and psyczilla mail interface) and firstname.lastname@example.org to match. we can market it as a good free jabber/email/chat solution (free, of course) but the thing could seriously promote the adoption of psyc by a wider audience.... opinions? [15:39:20]heldensaga says: what do you guys think about a fickzoo.com service including email -> psyc gateway (with webmail, imap and psyczilla mail interface) and email@example.com to match. we can market it as a good free jabber/email/chat solution (free, of course) but the thing could seriously promote the adoption of psyc by a wider audience.... opinions? [15:39:33]heldensaga says: ,) [15:40:01]heldensaga says: well, el sits next to me and he dares me to convince you into using pike for that service [15:40:14]heldensaga says: "in pike, man develop fast!" [15:40:20]heldensaga says: he said [15:40:27]heldensaga says: and he looks convinced [15:41:07]20after4 says: hehe [15:41:09]20after4 says: hmm.... [15:41:23]20after4 is not so convinced. [15:41:50]20after4 says: why pike? isn't psyced already suited to the task? [15:42:14]heldensaga says: you can [15:42:26]heldensaga says: 't send large mails with psyced [15:43:29]heldensaga says: it (well, ldmud) has got an outputbuffer [15:43:33]heldensaga says: of a certain size [15:44:03]20after4 says: ok ...how much reinventing are we talking about? I would actually like to see a lightweight psyced without the ldmud dependency [15:44:07]psyc://psyced.org/@PSYC inspected on http://www.psyc.eu/intro.de.html coming from http://www.psyc.eu/. [15:44:19]heldensaga says: and if it gets overrun, psyced just stops sending [15:44:32]el verwirrt: also there is that RST problem [15:44:33]heldensaga says: and... doesn't even throw an excepion [15:44:48]20after4 says: could it be a beast that connects with a psyced, letting psyced handle psyc routing and jabber stuff? [15:44:49]heldensaga says: you cannot know whether that email got through or not [15:45:09]heldensaga says: well, psyced doesn't route [15:45:22]heldensaga says: (yet, of course) [15:45:48]20after4 says: well...I mean handing everything to psyced except the specific features that we want to make in pike [15:46:08]20after4 says: letting pike take the place of UNI [15:46:18]20after4 says: while psyced is handling the rest [15:46:31]el verwirrt: psyced would be good for jabber stuff [15:46:37]el verwirrt: and.. webstuff [15:46:39]el verwirrt: only maybe [15:46:52]el verwirrt: because we can easily integrate that into roxen webserver [15:46:56]el verwirrt: or build our own [15:47:20]el verwirrt: with pike [15:48:12]20after4 says: ok.. why would I want pike over say ruby or php or java? (just to play devil's advocate ;) [15:48:32]el verwirrt: because we have a running psyc server in pike [15:48:39]20after4 says: really? [15:48:42]el verwirrt: yes [15:48:42]heldensaga says: sure [15:48:49]20after4 says: hmm [15:49:01]20after4 says: and ....non-blocking io? [15:49:03]el verwirrt: we have been working on that the last few month [15:49:07]20after4 says: cool [15:49:12]el verwirrt: yes, nonblocking [15:49:16]heldensaga says: we'd never block anything [15:49:22]heldensaga says: not even io [15:49:26]heldensaga says: or dns requests [15:49:38]20after4 says: what about just handing the email task to something like exim? [15:49:52]20after4 says: (not to eliminate pike, just to eliminate implementing smtp) [15:50:24]heldensaga says: well, you'd then need to handle the webail task to something like apache [15:50:28]heldensaga says: uiwefuiiwuefiuwefwefuiwefiuwefiusdfhiusdfuisdfhiuhfiuhweiufhiuwefh~ [15:50:51]20after4 says: I like apache...and roundcube [15:51:07]el verwirrt: there are pike modules for smtp [15:51:13]20after4 says: hmm [15:51:36]el verwirrt: it should not be too much a problem [15:52:40]20after4 says: ok... sounds interesting. I guess I can add this all under some new wiki page ;) [15:53:40]el verwirrt: you should have a look at the stuff [15:53:46]el verwirrt: there is a cvs rep [15:54:20]el verwirrt: /CVS/co .. rep is 'ppp' [15:55:07]20after4 says: Cool [15:55:30]el verwirrt: we need to let the rest discuss that further
- <echox> we could also give the users the possibility to create their own rooms with their own rules. They could use codebricks to build their room... Opinions?
- <Monkey> I like it! very cool idea... would be nice to let the users do some basic programming of their UNI functionality as well, something like basic filter rules plus basic bot functionality.
- <coyo> I am in favor of this, especially the nonblocking concurrent io for everything. event-driven programming is the future.
