Developer Topic Description

We all have some experience with open source tools for interface design and configuration, from Apache to Lucene and up to full ILS systems.  In the proprietary Voyager dev experience we saw the breakthrough to XSLT and open platform OPAC possibilities.  SUMMON feels like a step backwards to config files and API fixes. I keep hearing from my team what cannot be displayed and how basic features like facet behaviors are out of our control.  We can still dream and I present here (30 mins) an imagined dev-config-customize interface tool for SUMMON.
