Like the way you're progressing. Thanks for getting things working without Javascript, that was very important for me.

I think my feature wish-list is now practically empty - don't get too bloaty!

I would still like to see a notification if/when someone replies to one of my comments, but otherwise I agree. I think this is a great replacement for slashcode, which is a horrible monster, all we're missing here is the community.

It would be nice if Bryan would put his efforts up on Github and allow some collaboration, but it's his baby and I can't blame him if he wants to keep it to himself.

Yeah, I hear ya on the lack of community. Even if Bryan does put it up on github, I wouldn't be surprised if others don't pick it up. The soynuts have already put a lot of effort into reviving slashcode, I doubt they would give it up at this point to pursue putting their features into pipecode. In any case, I'd wait until the code was in a good state to show to people after dogfooding it here.

I'm a soynut. I was an early adopter for both sites and tried to help with Soylent when they started, but I couldn't get slashcode working because of the outdated mod_perl extension and gave up after a few days. I advocated scrapping slashcode and starting from scratch, but NCommander got it working and it was decided that they have it working so they'd just replace it a little at a time.

|. has a much nicer interface, way cleaner and easier to look at and way more stable. Slashcode is a mess, both code wise and the UI, they're doing a good job keeping it running for now, but I figure in the long run everyone will move over here as things over there start breaking down and they realize they just can't fix slashcode.

Soylent was the hare, Pipedot is the tortoise.
