For my next web site I would prefer not to write everything from scratch. At the same time I don't want to be looked to much into a framework, as I think I would be with DotNetNuke for example. It is not exactly a DIGG clone,
but there are user created articles with comments, rankings etc.
The idea is to take KIGG as a starting point, and modify all user-facing views (We need dynamic language anyway).
I am thinking of KIGG, because it seems to be quite nice, a lot of stuff is available in the package while the framework itself is not that many manmonths . Also I hope the MVC thing can make things easier.
point is that it seems to be developer-oriented - the editor for example and this Open ID thing instead of the .NET framework membership provider.
Some general requirements
So I would like something that I can use at all levels.
- Access the DB (SQL Server) directly (The DB layout should not be much more complex than a self written app)
- Business logic
- Interface components (Web parts/Controls) -For example login, most read articles.
For the fronted there should be sample pages that I can easily change. (Not to database driven)
Thanks - Olav
