written by Geoff Bowers on Friday, 3 August, 2007 @ 03:40 PM

Trond and crew at idl in Norway have released a great little form building plugin for the FarCry Framework, complete with user documentation. It leverages the nested tree model, allowing you to drop custom built forms directly into the site tree. Form posts are collected in the database and can be reviewed at any time. Nice little tutorial as well explaining how it was all put together.

Yxplorer is a Flashlet and accompanying component that allow you to drill down and explore your session, application and server scopes. Very nifty tool if you've been wondering what's in there. Yxplorer is part of the FarCry framework, but something that can be used on its own just about anywhere.

A couple of attributes can transform the functionality of your application. By way of example, take a look at how one line of code can add an image library to your application.

FarCry: Deploying Content Objects

FarCry does things a little bit differently to other frameworks. Why concentrate on generating componentry and code by introspecting a database table, when you could be doing the complete opposite.

Getting tinyMCE to play nice with dp.SyntaxHighlighter

dp.SyntaxHighlighter is a Javascript library that converts textarea form elements into pretty code highlighting boxes -- you can see examples on this page :) Unfortunately, the out of the box implementation of tinyMCE is going to give you some trouble.

FarCry: Google Maps Plugin

FarCry 4.0 is just around the corner, and as part of our efforts to make sure the new plugin framework is ship-shape we've been building some clever widgets to try and break things. If you haven't time to have a play, take a moment to watch my little Google Maps plugin video clip on how it all comes together.
