What is Ophal?

Ophal is a highly scalable web platform, which aims to be easy to maintain, learn, extend and is open to improvements.

Summary

Botphal reimplemented from scratch

Hello Ophal Users! I (wolfmitchell) have been working on an IRC bot that will, sooner or later, integrate with Ophal. This allows for many, many possibilities. For example, we can have a web panel to control the IRC bot. You could have a voting system that is IRC based in order to get people to vote on features of your site.

Ophal installer

Ophal is not based on traditional web technology, but it should not be a limitation. RoR and Django know it well!

Following the specification of Ophal installer a.k.a install.cgi:

A future without Flash, Javascript, and PHP, possible?

With that in mind, let’s imagine it is 2022, there is no Flash, no Javascript, nor PHP around. How most web developers would face their projects? Ruby, Python, ASP.net and other alternatives might come to our minds when trying to replace PHP. And perhaps you don’t mind about Flash because it just quietly disappeared the past decade, being replaced by the amazing HTML5. Now what about Javascript? that is hard to imagine, perhaps Google Dart is being used along with some other alternatives.

It looks like we are missing something very important, right? It is called Event Oriented Programming, which is changing the way websites are being implemented back in the present. So something really nasty had to happen to not have Javascript in the future, both server and client(web browser) side.

Session handling approaches and the future of Ophal

Over the past 18 months I’ve been working on making Ophal perform well at the front-end and have a minimal server-side load, making it quickly evolve as a playground framework (i.e: MeQuejo.PE!, Zophin and develCuy’s blog search engine). Now is time to work on more complex stuff that involves the 3 functions left before a first Ophal beta release:

Backend improvements

MeQuejo.PE: a test case for Ophal

With the purpose of testing Ophal in a real use case, just implemented a proof of concept.

The result is the pre-alpha of: MeQuejo.PE, which seems to be a news aggregator, but it really is a list of search results provided by Google Custom Search API, thanks to a search engine with several custom criteria. Such results are consumed with the help of Lua Spore module.
