So, I needed a discussion board for my law class. I wanted a karma system, but I like the way Moveable Type works. Since it is a static system, I couldn’t effectively do a “plug-in,” something else had to happen. So, I wrote a karma “plug-out,” a script in Python that interfaces through links back to MT. It’s relatively seamless, and should work for my purposes.
In the next couple of weeks, once I work out some of the kinks, I’ll throw a copy out there for whoever might want it. It’s a bit clunky, but it’s a workable solution for my class, I think. We’ll see. You can check it out as the semester progresses at the website for the law course.
