Coda is a web-based publishing platform built on the Rails framework. It is a Ruby on Rails application, which allows users to create websites, for example, an individual blog or a corporate site. Coda is a developer-focused application. Unlike other blogging platforms such as MovableType (http://movabletype.org), Coda focuses on managing content and process instead of devoting much attention to the user interface. This can be seen from the fact that Coda does not have a WYSIWYG editor and users have to manually HTML code their content using the source code editor available in the application. The advantage of this is that it forces users to concentrate on the writing and presentation of content rather than focusing on how their page appears. As you might guess, this leads to a steep learning curve for those who intend to use Coda as their blogging platform.
Nutshell is a web-based note-taking application built on Rails. It is based on the same development principles as Coda and utilizes the same underlying architecture. Nutshell is more focused on notes and text editing rather than presenting content in a blog-like format like Coda. It is ideal for those who want to keep track of their work or those who need a simple text editor for writing letters or composing documents.
When Nutshell was being developed by its original team, it was not designed with integration in mind. When the development team started to make progress with Nutshell, they started to realize that they lacked the time required to develop some critical features that they wanted in Coda, so they decided to integrate Nutshell into Coda. This led to unexpected problems because they had to make changes in both applications at the same time. One example of the problems that arose during this integration is that Nutshell was designed to emulate MS Word's behavior when creating links, but this feature was not present in Coda. Therefore, users had to manually enter the URL for each link. Furthermore, if someone copied an article from Nutshell and pasted it into Coda, then all of the links in Nutshell were broken as they now resided in a different database. The team spved this problem by using Nutshell's redirection feature to automatically redirect all requests for broken links to the correct location. Another issue that arose was that Nutshell did not have fast searching capabilities; thus, when users searched for something in Coda, they were presented with results from Nutshell and vice versa. The team spved this problem by creating a fast search method within Nutshell that could also search through posts in Coda. After respving these issues, both applications started working together as intended.
After completing the integration, several benefits came out of it. First, it allowed developers to focus on adding new features to both applications rather than duplicating work on both applications simultaneously. Additionally, updating both applications at the same time was easier than upgrading one application at a time because their developers had to perform this task together instead of performing it separately. A third benefit is that it allowed the team to take advantage of existing code from both applications whereas before they had to duplicate this code in each application. Finally, it reduced training costs for new developers since they would only have to learn one set of tops rather than two sets of tops.
