My BP plugin ideas; anyone want to develop with me?
I have several strong ideas for BuddyPress plugins, and I’d love to work a few of them collaboratively with others; unfortunately, programming is only a hobby for me and it’s been quite a long time since I’ve worked with anyone on a project (excluding “Wordhack” events).
The following’s a list of a few of the better ideas I have had, in no particular order. They are all at some stage of development, i.e. sketched out on paper, or prototyped or I’ve written proof-of-concept code. Give me a shout if anyone feels interested.
1) “Spotlight” search — better presentation of the current search features. Think Spotlight (on Mac OS X).
2) User import from other social networks — rather than creating a new account and entering all your details (name, picture, etc), type in the URL of your [favourite social network page] and we’ll suck all that information into BuddyPRess.
3) Machine-readable pages — Provides a machine-readable alternative of your profile/friends list/group page/etc pages. Why? To complement my number 2 idea above and to promote ‘linked data.’ (aka FOAF & SIOC RDF documents).
