One Script to Bind them All…

Monday, July 9th, 2007

I’ve been talking to a couple of coders about the difficulty of building sites up from various useful open source projects. Each of them is great by themselves and far in advance of many of the community site building tools that are available. However since they all have separate user management features they can become a little unwieldy to integrate and maintain. Then someone mentioned that they wished someone would write a tool to tie them all together. My mind wandered to Lord of the Rings. So with appologies to JRRT…

Three Scripts for the forum-mods under the phpBB,
Seven for the galleries in their halls of coppermine,
Nine for online storekeeper doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark keyboard
In the Land of MySQL where the Shadows lie.
One Script to rule them all, One Script to find them,
One Script to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
