Following the last blog we concluded that MEPrints needs to:
be a plugin system for eprints.
the Profile will be a plugin and then each element of it will be a Plugin called a widget (a la igoogle )
The Profile frame work should have an inwards facing “Home page” for the user which has their information and statistics available. The user controls what is displayed in their home page.
The Profile framework should also include and outward facing “Profile page” the contents of which is controlled by the repository administrator. The profile page is accessible to the internet in the same way as a an eprint in the archive.
the work for the week is:
- build the Profile framework for dynamically loading plugins
- make the default widgets (personal picture, user details, user tools)
