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.
State of the Nation for FarCry Framework: FarCry rocks. Development since the release of 4.0 has been fast and furious. The more production sites released the more minor fixes, mods and enhancements have made it into the core.
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.
FarCry 4.0 introduces a revolutionary new way of developing ColdFusion applications, namely the "formtool". Formtools are a metadata-driven library of UI elements for display and editing. 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 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.
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.
