CCmixter + BuddyPress = Yesmate!

    Heya,

    I am wondering if anyone out there would be interested in collaborating on a project to integrate CCHost as used on CCMixter) with BuddyPress? I am not really a developer, and can barely hack a PHP file, but I don’t think it would be too complicated (but they do say ‘a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing’ ;-)

    I would be really happy with just login integration hack, but there is a whole host of other fun plug-in potential stuff that could be done by a code ninja (or team of) for sure.

    Any thoughts?

    Sample pools would be an example of functionality beyond shared login…

    There’s lots of ways to build bridges between platforms, but no one usually does it until they need to do it themselves.

    I’ve never seen ccHost until now, and as powerful as it looks, it really looks like a competing project compared to what WordPress/bbPress/BuddyPress already attempts to do, with the help of plugins of course.

    People have built integrated logins for phpBB and vBulletin, so I imagine someone could do this for you too.

    Hey James, thanks for the reply… I am pretty sure I could do it with a little help – it can’t be more complicated than forums platforms as you say… there is no ‘recipe’ out there yet so there is a chance to explore new territory ;-)

    I don’t really think it ‘competes’ – they are both GPL community platforms, ccHost being more niche for sure, but I think a social site with creative commons music functionality would be a killer direction for buddypress…

    This seems to be a lifetime project for me (yesmate.com) – starting back in the days before wordpress, when open-source CMS were rare… I am in no hurry :)

    Perhaps it would be better to design some plug-ins for WP/BP that emulate what ccHost does (I know from trying to subscribe to an ‘editors picks’ feed on cMixter via my n95 that WP does RSS and pretty URLs better lol).

    Peaces
