Blog, and comments launched for On My Doorstep...

Published Thu, 17 Jun 2010

I've been busy the past couple of weeks building out some major new features for onmydoorstep.com.au

So, I'm proud to present the On My Doorstep Blog and the addition of comments / discussion features across the entire site.

Building a blog and commenting system in Wicket was a pleasure, and a smooth development process. I know, I know; creating a blog isn't exactly rocket science, but I continue to be impressed with the speed and ease with which it is possible to build out, componentize and refactor major features using Wicket. I have a hard time imagining going back to a Model-2 type web framework. I think it would feel like writing in assembly again.

I've also using the wicketstuff-rome integration for the RSS feed features.

The site also recently introduced Facebook profile picture and Gravatar integration (for people not using Facebook Connect).

Anyhow, subscribe to the RSS feed & stay tuned for more updates coming soon! :)

Also hard at work on visural-wicket 0.6, should be out sometime this week or next.
