GrassRoots: Socially-Driven Web Sites for the Masses

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Large, socially-driven Web 2.0 sites such as Facebook and Youtube have seen significant growth in popularity. However, strong demand also exists for socially-driven web sites specialized to companies and knowledge domains. Unfortunately, existing tools for building such sites only provide low-level functionality to address recurring search and organization patterns. Further, they require expertise at many levels of the software stack. Therefore, the authors propose GrassRoots, a declarative language for modeling socially-driven websites and a compiler to automatically generate the code at several layers of the software stack.
