A Turning Point in my Life, Community Networks and OpenWISP

25th May 2012 in Thoughts

In the last year or so I suddenly became interested about telecommunications thanks to my friends at Ninux.org, which inspired me to learn a lot of things about networking, telecommunications, wireless standards and community networks.

In the past I didn't realize how indipendent networks are important to our society. The internet has really revolutionized our society, there's no turning back and this trend cannot do anything else than evolve.

Where is the internet heading to? I really believe in an open, more accessible, fully decentralized new internet, which is built by citizens on their roofs or by smaller (prevalently wireless) service providers...

I wanted to implement this functionality in my django projects for some time now and I finally had the chance to work on a project that has this requirement in the specification.

Features:

  • Tag editing
  • Autocompletition
  • Customizable maximum tags number
  • Costomizable max length of each tag
  • Customizable minimum amount of letters before the autocompletition starts
  • Aims to be flexible (help me if you want)
