Flexedtoolkit Google project
June 6, 2007 30 Comments
WANTED: Developers who can contribute to this open source initiative 🙂
I have created a google project to put in some of the stuff that we have been working on and releasing through this blog. Some of the stuff that you can already download from Flexedtoolkit are –
- Client Idle Timeout
- Custom Alerts
- Custom Grid
I am working on a small component – CForms. The idea is to have a generic UI rendering engine that will create forms from an XML file. This is particularly useful in serious business applications where you have a lot of user entry screens. So, if the developer needs to have a screen, they just include something like –
<widgets:CForm controlsFile=”controls.xml” id=”VLAN”/>
Everything else – Styles, layout, look and feel etc. will be handled by the CForm component as per instructions in the abc.xml… Getting a picture?
We initially did this as part of my project requirements at work. And it was a life-saver. Now, I would like to extend it beyond what it is today. I want to make it more generic and feature rich so that others can leverage on it.
The project homepage is http://code.google.com/p/flexedtoolkit. If you are interested in joining the project, do leave a comment. 🙂 Really hope some of you folks would find time to work on this.
