Integrating a wishlist into OCP

Hello everyone,

I found a Wishlist (Registry) open source program that I would like to Intergrate into OCP.

I want to create a Zone called "Registry" and Place the program within there. It has many php files and about 5 folders with some folders having more folders. All have php files in them.

I would like to embed them in pages in OCP having no side modules. Is that possible?

If this can be done, do I just strip out the HTML and comp only the PHP part or what?

Also, am I correct, in that I would need to change each php file to point to the OCP location for each page? It seems that some of the php files intergrate with others, what do I do then?

Is it possible to create a module from that program?

I've included the zip file of this program for anyone that could use this.

Basically, you need to be/have a programmer. ocPortal contains various powerful integration tools (e.g. minimodules, or the proxying system), but integration poses many issues. Not just in terms of unifying page/URL structure, but also often things like authentication.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
