Corfield's Article on BlogCFC

This post is more than 2 years old.

Sean Corfield is rewriting the client portion of BlogCFC and describes his experiences here. While it is a bit painfull to read, I certainly don't blame him. The client portion in my blog is just plain ugly. My plan is to do an update of everything outside the CFC in the 4.0 release. There is another small update coming soon as well.

You you going to put everything outside of the CFC into a kind of framework/methodology? I'm not just talking FB here, maybe just a simple MVC approach or something?

I'm not sure. All I know is that it needs cleaning. Badly.

Sorry for the pain :)

I'm hoping that folks will pick apart my Fusebox wrapper and show me where I'm not being idiomatic and where I can improve things.

Once I've finished the FB41 wrapper (and I've still got a lot of refactoring to do), I'll start cleaning up the UI in terms of standards, switching to XHTML (perhaps even "strict" - that'll be a challenge!) and using CSS / CSS-P instead of the tables etc.

Sean, as you know, I did a conversion of this to MachII some time ago. I also converted it to a CSS layout. If you want, I can send you over my code as a reference.

Don't take it too hard Ray! We'll all learn something in the process. I'm sure Sean would have plenty to say about the applications most of us have developed -- and rightly so :)
