Outage Management System Update 2

Just wanted to give a quick update on the Outage Management System that I’m working on and planning to release as an open source project – for the benefit of my electric cooperative friends.

I’ve suspended development… temporarily. My schedule for the past 6 weeks has made it really hard to code, taking in calls for 8 hours taxes the body and stresses the mind. And all I really want to do when I get home is either lie down or watch a movie – so coding after work is also out of the question. And if I do get a chance to fire up Vim, I usually work on our in-house OMS.

On the technical side, I’ve long ago scrapped Code Igniter and utilized Silex instead – a PHP micro framework. But to be honest, I’m also checking out Limonade, so I might change my mind yet again – even though I don’t want to since this project’s long overdue. I’ve also included an option to enable real-time updates via long polling for those monitoring incoming complaints, but it’s still buggy as hell. I haven’t even started with the interruptions module much less the ERC/DMC/NEA SAIDI, SAIFI, MAIFI reporting. I’ll post the project on Github when I deem it *cough* *cough* presentable. Heh!
