As the development goes on, I think it is time for me to clarify some things about Neutrino. Specifically, I need to make sure people understand what Neutrino is not.
Above all things, Neutrino is going to be simple. What does that mean?
Well, looking at all the CM systems out there, I've noticed one thing: they tend to get in your way. There are always some issues with requirement, maintenance, upgrades, and overall experience is - you spend more time maintaining instead of publishing content!
I might be way off, of course, this is just my personal experience. What I want to do with Neutrino is the following:
- Install it
- Use it
No fuss, no headaches, no complicated configuration, and nearly 0% maintenance after installation.
Also, Neutrino is not going to have installable components, modules and all that stuff. There will be only core package. No additional plugins and all that please-install-me-this-way-or-that-way crap.
It seems like most developers are using Wordpress. Now, I have no idea what's that like, and I don't really care. What I want is a CM system designed for developers. I want to be able to perform basic tasks:
- Publish articles
- Release applications, downloads and source code
- Get some feedback / statistics
That is all.
This might seem like a blog, and it is true that it can be used as a blog but blogging is not Neutrino's primary purpose. Besides, reading about what you had for breakfast two days ago is not really that interesting. At all.
I want to make a CMS which will help us share our knowledge with the world in an unobtrusive way. (In the absence of knowledge, I guess crappy code is okay too...)
So programmers; hear ye, hear ye, I'm open for suggestions!
