RE: BlindProgramming.com site

Hi Jamal,

I think Octavian pointed out the differences between the CMS/EMS and a frame
work such as Ruby on Rails or Django.  I prefer a framework to do highly
customized work.  Ruby on Rails and Django are excellent for that.  The
frameworks mainly rely on the MVC type of programming and I do like
programming when there is that distinction. Besides I like to avoid mixing
database codes with templating and SQL queries. Drupal's core functionality
is customizable as well.  If you ever have time to waste, I would recommend
you look at the modules that are available for Drupal.  6.x was just
released so you won't have too many compatible modules but there are
hundreds of modules for 5.x.

Regards,

Pratik

Cool!  How have you found Drupal compares to other web frameworks, e.g.,
Ruby on Rails?
