A collection of opinions, thoughts, tricks and misc. information.
The Kepty web application framework got a new addition today... Scaffolding. It's been planned for a while, but I was trying to avoid it until all the other pieces were getting together properly. Database-generated forms are great, but they also took too much away from the user end. The forms generated by the scaffold are code-based, meaning you can modify them as you please. With my current working application I have a database with a table named "posts." I simply use this command:
kepty scaffold posts
And I get an application for modifying and browsing the posts table. It's mounted as name: posts, location: /posts
automatically. Browse to http://serveraddress/posts and you get this:
It's a start. My intentions for the scaffolding process with the kepty WAF are to keep something that can actually be used in production that's professional and easily modified (code generation at a low level instead of something like form(table), although possible). In any case, take a look at the sourceforge project page for more.
