Update (Nov 2012): We desided to  use PHP.

We are questioning the opa language at the moment!!

Our reasons:

  • very bad documented
  • some functions doesn’t work propperly
  • draggable functions dont work on smartphones
  • animations are not opa’s strength
  • not much people know about it -> bad support

we are looking for alternatives!

Why we chose our programer language: Long time we were discussing about the right script. First we started in jquery, but after we fount opa (http://opalang.org) we felt, this is the right way to go. Even if it is not popular at the moment. Together with html 5 & CSS 3 this will be our base!

Short info about opa: Opa is an open source language for scalable web applications. It can be used at server and client-site: your write in one code and opa compile it to the several scripts. This is why you can generate seperate virutal tasks and conent in one window easily.

For our project we need the freedom of navigation like with opa. We also want to have a good interaction with desktop-navigation.

Other codes we were thinking about: ruby-on-rails, node.js, python.
