>>  Hi everyone,
>>  My name is Madhura Jayaratne and I am an undergraduate from the
>>  University of Moratuwa Sri Lanka. I have few years of experience in
>>  using php and mySql and was a user of phpMyAdmin for few years.
>>  When I was going through the GSoC idea list I noticed the project idea
>>  on charts and was interested as I have engaged in developing a general
>>  charting framework during my internship. I went through the requested
>>  feature list and had a look at the area of the codebase where I have to
>>  do the development.
>>  I have few ideas to add in this regard. My feeling is that, before
>>  adding charts to the runtime information tab we should put in place a
>>  framework that would allow us to extend charting facilitates wherever we
>>  want to have it in phpMyAdmin.
>>   What I'm proposing is a general data structure that would facilitate
>>  multiple types of charts (we can learn a lot from Google Visualization
>>  API in this regard), and a set of interfaces that would facilitate
>>  different implementation for different chart rendering engines( we can
>>  even go for something other than CD2, if we feel like that sometimes
>>  down the line)
>>  Though this would take few weeks of extra time, I feel that this allows
>>  a lot of extensibility. When we have this framework in place we can do
>>  the implementation as for the requirement we have now and we can go on
>>  to add different charts to phpMyAdimn in the future as the requirement
>>  arises.
>>  Would love to hear your opinion about this
>>  Thanx in advance

We'll have to see. Please read this list's archives for past discussions
a few weeks ago about templating and PHP frameworks.

Marc Delisle

Sure, I'll do that and post to the forum if I have any further queries
regarding templating and PHP frameworks.
Thanx and regards
Madhura Jayaratne
