I've got one almost ready that does the user logins and general menu
links and uses Glorp for user lookup (talking to a PostgreSQL
database). The only thing that's keeping me from turning people loose
on it is that I need to figure out how to get VisualWorks/Seaside
talking on a different port than (the default) 8008.. Once that's done,
I'll have it all setup on a server sitting in my garage.. I was going to
put it up on seasidehosting.st until I read that they don't provide any
sort of database access. I think these initial growing pains for new
users (to Seaside + Smalltalk) are what may drive people away
(perhaps).. If there are a set of standard things that are common for
many web apps already available, it would likely reduce the amount of
confusion about how things work,etc.
