I wasn't able to follow along much since work had be fairly occupied, so I'm not sure where this ended up. I got myself setup with a Debian install in VirtualBox on my OS X machine and tried getting this going.

Installed a handful of packages and got to this point:

$ ./plinth.py
/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/cherrypy/lib/cptools.py:3: DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
   import md5
/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/cherrypy/filters/sessionfilter.py:33: DeprecationWarning: the sha module is deprecated; use the hashlib module instead
   import sha
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "./plinth.py", line 8, in<module>
     import cfg, plugin_mount
   File "/home/lmorchard/devel/other/Plinth/plugin_mount.py", line 2, in<module>
     from modules.auth import require
   File "/home/lmorchard/devel/other/Plinth/modules/auth.py", line 65, in<module>
     cherrypy.tools.auth = cherrypy.Tool('before_handler', check_auth)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'Tool'

Looking forward to contributing to this, if only in a fork, because I just realized this was in Debian:

$ apt-cache search dojo
libjs-dojo-core - Modular JavaScript toolkit
libjs-dojo-dijit - Modular JavaScript toolkit - Dijit
libjs-dojo-dojox - Modular JavaScript toolkit - DojoX

As I mentioned in #freedombox, I'm pretty enamored with the slick ExtJS UI installed on my Synology NAS, and I think something like that could be done with Dojo for Freedombox. I wouldn't mind taking a shot at working on something like that.
