The Design of Software (CLOSED)

A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.

The "Design of Software" discussion group has been merged with the main Joel on Software discussion group.

The archives will remain online indefinitely.

To manage knowledge bases

I am writing a software for this purpose. Freeware, as I don't plan to make money with it. But I will be glad if it becomes somewhat known (appearing in the first or second pages of Google).

Could anyone review?

I appreciate comments and critics.

I'm curious - what did you find wrong with all the other types of similar product out there?  Or is this just for fun?

Most of them are paid. I needed something to publish a FAQ and I decided to write this. For fun, too.

Do you know anything similar, freeware?

Just from looking at the screen shots, and I know it might be different when I download it, but it doesn't appear that it would scale well with large amounts of knowledge.  How many articles have you been able to push into it and organize effectively?  Also, once a large amount of data is pushed into it, can others who are not familiar with the system find what they are looking for?

Guess you're right, because this initial release lacks pagination of content and search. These are "to do" features. But it won't take long until I implement them. Thanks for the feedback.

Suggestion - for screenshots use PNG instead of JPEG. PNG is "crisper" than JPEG for fonts.

I'd have to say there are a large number of PHP projects that this resembles. An example being Plone. When you first see the Plone site you might not think so but from what I have seen it is very flexible.

But if you're having fun and learning new things or reinforcing what you know why stop?
