That looks great. 

Looking at that example there's something else we've been forgetting.


Every Occupy site should have it.

It looks good! I prefer Python to PHP and feel it might be easier to

Flask is pretty new and I'm not sure if it's been tested on large
production systems with large loads. Ori - do you have any thoughts on

    I'm thinking that since you already did the work to get this up
    and running it might be easier for us to build on what you've done
    and turn that into the Permabank.

    Permabank team, thoughts?

        Hey guys,

        I don't suppose I could persuade you to develop in Python? For
        the past few days I've been working on building a gift / skill
        exchange site for OWS. I built an app (called Marcel) which is
        close to being ready for deployment. You can demo it here: The code is up on GitHub at

        I'm sorry to leap out of the woodwork with this. I have a
        newborn baby /and /I've been sick for the past few days, so I
        simply haven't been able to keep up with meetings and emails.
        I don't mean to step on anybody's toes. I'd be happy to put
        this up as temporary solution and then point it to whatever
        Drupal-based product you come up with. If people think this
        could be a viable platform, I'll deploy an instance with OWS
        branding and better explanatory texts.

        I plan to add search, editing posts, and more fluid
        login/logout -- it shouldn't take more than a day or two. I'd
        also like to add RSS/Atom feeds.

        The code is poorly documented right now but it's pretty clean,
        and I'll be adding comments and documentation tomorrow. It's
        built on top of Flask <>, which is very
        simple to develop on. I would really love to continue working
        on it, but I don't want to sabotage some kind of collective
        undertaking. It really does sound like something like this is
        needed urgently, though.


        Best, Ori

            Also, Keka, are you still on board for the visual design?
            - I have also copied the design WG back on this list to
            see if there are more people interested in making the site
            super slick!!

            Dave, the author of that blog is a friend of mine, a
            number of people in FLO Solutions group member projects
            are on the shareable list and the communityforge
            developer is on our team. ;)
