punBB extensions better?

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
It seems that punBB's extension system is going to use XML. That being said, it'll looks like it may be a bit clearer than Vanilla extensions. Also, I've come across which seems to make it easy to develop extensions for punBB. So my question is...will there be anything like this for Vanilla? :)

    That punxs is pretty impressive. I don't know about xml - I haven't looked at pun's extensions system in a long time. The last time I did it was almost non-existant. From the demo on that punxs page, it looks like they've made their extension methodology a lot like Vanilla's. We have hooks, but we call them delegates. A program like punxs could be written for Vanilla, but I have no plans to do anything like that.

    Yeah, that's what I was getting at. Just wondering, what were some of the factors that made you develop Vanilla using OOP?

    Eventually punbb will do just like how vanilla or drupal does. right now u add ur mods directly in the original files. eventually they will require u to attach ur own own code to the hooks and not require u to edit the original source files. thats the whole concept of a plugin architecture. provide hooks so the original files are not altered.
