Here is what i intend to do for a near futur.
Roadmap is avaible as
Beyond what is in the Roadmap, here is the 'spirit'
of The WebDruid.
The ultimate goal is to produce a full featured generic web site
analysis tool. Here are the areas where i intend to bring improvements:
Open development methods
I do believe that one of the keys for the success
of a free software is it's development method. I really like to
hear suggestions from other people. If you know the C programming
language and/or HTML & XML, and you have suggestions for improvements,
or if you have a patch for this really great feature you think should
be really useful, just drop
me a note.
Ease of use
The WebDruid is already easy to use for the system
administrator (at least, i hope so...). But issues have been reported
when showing the reports to non technical people. The HTML report
may be improved to be easier to understand, maybe by including online
explanations, and FAQ in the report itself.
The WebDruid is already a rather fast tool, but there
is potential for (at least)a 30% speed increase. This will require
to build a custom memory allocation system.
Thanks to the work of Bradford l. Barrett, this tool
is already highly customizable. Some people use it just to grab
figures from it, and build their own report system on the top of
it. I do believe we can do even better, by separating the computation
part, from the report generation part. A way to achieve this goal
could be to use XML as an intermediate report format.
