====URI====

The [[URI DEV|current URI]] is a grown system which in it's current state is inconsistent and features unnecessary data. A shorter and feature-richer URI would be desirable. Furthermore a standarized parsing layer would reduce possible problems and remove redundant code.

====Markup====
The [[AniDB:Markup|markup]] has stabilized over the past year and is relatively consistent now. No major changes are planned. Minor changes can be requested [[AniDB_talk:Markup|here]]. Partly documented.

Areas

Site

The web pages are under constant development. Here are some of the important stuff.

General

URI

The current URI is a grown system which in it's current state is inconsistent and features unnecessary data. A shorter and feature-richer URI would be desirable. Furthermore a standarized parsing layer would reduce possible problems and remove redundant code.

Markup

The markup has stabilized over the past year and is relatively consistent now. No major changes are planned. Minor changes can be requested here. Partly documented.

Page generation

Still mostly print-generation, but many of the commonly used markup structures has functions at least. The major hold-up is the table-writer which is essential before any code validity guaranties can be given. No documentation.

Data control

Still very fluffy. No spec/documentation. No agreements reached. Current content in database is (highly) inconsistent. New system for input control is under development (testing phase?), though.

String externalization

Wanted, but no concrete plans yet.

Is this the internationalisation part? -- Ninjamask 05:34, 27 January 2008 (CET)
well to some extend it is. It's the second step of that. The first is to get the text out so it's easier to maintain, but yes in a second step we could allow multiple languages -- Der Idiot 16:33, 29 January 2008 (CET)

Error handling

No concrete plans yet.

Code documentation

None ATM.

Specific parts

Episode

Most importantly: fix type implementation. More...

MyList

Fix scrolling, more filters, fix direct link. More...
