thanks for suggestion... EGW is trully a good candidate, although I think it's a bit too complex and a bit too hard to learn (imagine kids and wife doing calendar appointments etc...).... I think info Log (it it still exists could be something like lightweight blogging thing....
Can you please give us more experiences, how EGW could be made easy to use basic family management application ? When I worked on EGW some time ago, I remember that learning curve is pretty steep with all those options for any entity you add...
In the mean time I found this :http://efp.rubyforge.org/
but it seems a bit outdated....
looking forward to discussion,
This is the back side of egw.
egw can do too much for what you want it to do.
And there is no way to configure individual apps to be light-weight unless you change code.
Infolog is still there with much more functionality than previous versions (before 1.4.xxx).
For example you can connect appointments, addresses and files to a specific task/note.
Task can be integrated into projects etc.
In the end infolog have too much functionality for a blog. At least at the user/writer end. I mean the blog writer should not have too many options when they write a post.
Since infolog is written using etemplate it should not too hard to create a derived version with less options and a new "blog" way to present data.
Infolog can also be published in sitemgr (egw cms system) to form part of a family portal together with a shared calender etc.
I believe. At least in a family that you need to make it very easy to publish data in this kind of system otherwise your family members will not update things. Just look at my own family.
