Re: Pre-alpha Module Restaurants v1.0
Oledrion is a ecommerce module and you want to build a presentation/content module.
Depends how you look at that!
If you want to manage a restaurant, it is way more than just creating a menu. It involves:
- the menu itself (products)
- reservation method (e.g. a table)
- ordering on line (e.g. for carry-out)
- payment on-line or in person
- inventory (food items, wine, etc.)
All of this stuff can be handled by Oledrion
However, this would not be to convert Oledrion into a Restaurant module, but instead, making it more flexible and powerful, so it could handle various tasks like Hotel, Restaurant, Bookshop, etc.
If you remember, Oledrion was based on the Bookshop module (see the original announcement
), but it was made more generic in order to handle any product or service. So it would be possible to make it even more generic with an architecture that would allow for specialized extensions to handle any sale of any product, like a Hotel, Restaurant, Bookshop, etc.
And that's what forking is all about, i.e. he doesn't have to change the original code of Oledrion, he can just create something different and maybe more powerful, the same way as Trabis forked SmartSection into Publisher
