How are the Vanilla Add-ons pages created ?

This is a bit of a random question, but I am interested to know if the Vanilla Add-ons pages are generated using a future or available Lussumo product, as it appears to use a very similar URL and html coding structure. The searching, listing and rating of the Add-ons seems to be a pretty sweet piece of code, and also is integrated through People, etc. I guess it could have just been hard-coded !?!

    Well it was written by the same guy, and uses a lot of the same framework classes.

    Yeah, it is all based around the framework so similarities are bound to be there. Mark says he has no intentions of releasing it as a stand alone product though. Dunno whether you could change his mind...

    I also doubt if he would, but I can see a lot of uses for such a feature.

    Perhaps Mark can comment !?!

    Yeah, it's all done with the lussumo framework (the same one Vanilla uses). It's just faster for me to do things that way and makes add-ons really easy later when I have time for it. Like mini said, I'm not planning on releasing the source for it. I was sloppy with the language definitions and just used plain english in most places. I just wanted to get the thing done.
