XSLTForms looks promising

Implementing client-side forms libraries is, and has been, all the rage. I’ve seen Mozquito Factory do amazing things in Netscape 4, Technical Pursuits TIBET on the perpetual verge of release, UGO, and others. In a more recent time scale, Ubiquity XForms impresses me and many others, and it has the right combination of funding and willing developers.

From a comment on my recent posting about Ubiquity XForms, I was pleased to learn about XSLTforms, a rebirth of AjaxForms, which I thought well of two years ago until its developer mysteriously left the project. But Software Libre lives on, and a new developer has taken over, this time using client-side XSLT instead of server-side Java to do the first pass of processing. Given the strong foundation, the project has come a long way in a short time, and already runs against a wide array of non-trivial examples. Check it out.

I’d like to hear what others think about this project. -m
