Future of Missing Recipes

Postby zeryl » Fri Sep 15, 2006 4:15 am

Ok, so i'm thinking of version 2.0

I've got alot of problems in the current version (probelms w/ cURL, fopen, etc), not to mention the problems w/ localization.

So my question to you is this.

Do you guys want an XML based solution (that will load the proper XML for the language/profession), or do you want an SQL solution, that will involve loading all the SQL for every profession/item.

XML will be great for those using PHP5, as the XML functions are built in, and I would have to use an external library to make it backward compatible for PHP4.

SQL will be good, but the only downside is that I'm not sure how large SQL table will end up being with all the professions/items. (I will probably distribute a SQL file per language so you don't have to load the enUS table if you use deDE)

So please vote. If you have any other suggestions for data storage, PLEASE suggest it!

I missed the vote, but if you do the SQL way, please make it so it still would allow the loading of all the different localization versions to the data table.

Ok, so i'm going to go full steam ahead with making this all done in SQL.

There probably won't be much in the way of visual/presentation, all the big stuff will be behind the scenes.

I don't think I will. I know that there are a couple threads here showing how to add jewelcrafting to the list. Unfortunately I don't have the time, nor regex know-how to make this work much better than it is.

XML or SQL, Separate professions and faction better. What I mean is this for example, I'm a horde swordsmith. Obviously I can't learn alliance or other trade specific types of recipes of blacksmithing.

Don't exclude recipes that can only be purchased by the other faction. I regularly sell faction-specific recipes across the neutral AH at great profit and want to know which ones to sell. (The cooking recipes available from the Stormwind Master of Recipes are a good example, as are the leatherworking recipes in Arathi at Hammerfall and Refuge Point.)

For flexibility, you could keep the data in XML and write a small conversion script to make a SQL file out of it. Keeping the data in the DB should give the web server better performance, but XML may be a more convenient source format to compile the data in.
