it goes on - spunQ 2.0 in development

Posted 2007-03-09

Filed under: spunq 2.0, interface

only three weeks after the release of spunQ 1.3, the development for the next version has already began...

one very convenient feature in spunQ 2.0 will be the automatic generation of forms in the frontend based on the class member definitions in the backend, including all available interface elements and ajax checks as well as individual context help areas for each field. thus, it will become very fast and easy to create and modify interfaces in the frontend, saving a lot of html work. however, the adaptability of the form appearance will completely remain as each form element will get its own css id.

in general, the backend and the frontend is progressively merged which will make the code even more efficient and easier to maintain. all important backend methods - e.g. for saving object data - will be available in the frontend, saving also php coding time.

additionally, some typical web 2.0 features will find their way into the spunQ core, such as automatically generated tag clouds as well as comment and rating modules.
