    • Infrae ! Download ! Formulator Formulator Formulator Formulator is an extensible framework that eases the creation and validation of web forms. HISTORY for the latest release. Important links: Subscribe to the Formulator mailing list, for general discussions and questions on Formulator usage. If you're interested in the further development of Formulator, subscribe to the Formulator-dev list Formulator SourceForge project page Formulator SVN web Check out Formulator from SVN like this: svn co https://infrae.com/svn/Formulator/trunk Formulator Important hint: Don't ever use field_<fieldname>; anything prefixed with field_ in REQUEST is a Formulator implementation detail. Instead, don't forget to validate the form, for instance using validate_all_to_request(). See the Formulator API help and Howto for more information. Forgetting to validate the form is the most frequently made Formulator mistake that I've encountered. Documentation: Formulator HOWTO Very nice slides about Formulator by Jens Quade (in German) A Zopelabs recipe by Scott Burton on using Formulator with Zope Page Templates Howto on using Formulator with Zope Page Templates by Beno Some less important links: Formulator on Freshmeat Formulator project page on Advogato older Formulator page on zope.org License: New BSD Release version Release date Release files Formulator 1.11.3 21 may 2007 15:05 Formulator-1.11.3.tgz Formulator 1.11.2 12 jun 2006 16:35 Formulator-1.11.2.tgz Formulator 1.11.1 02 feb 2006 18:21 Formulator-1.11.1.tgz Formulator 1.11 23 jan 2006 15:54 Formulator-1.11.tgz Formulator 1.10.1 16 dec 2005 16:21 Formulator-1.10.1.tar.gz Formulator 1.10 09 sep 2005 16:40 Formulator-1.10.tgz Formulator 1.9.0 25 may 2005 21:05 Formulator-1.9.0.tgz Formulator 1.8.0 21 jan 2005 15:32 Formulator-1.8.0.tgz Formulator 1.7.0 08 sep 2004 18:20 Formulator-1.7.0.tgz Formulator 1.6.2 01 sep 2004 10:47 Formulator-1.6.2.tgz Public Domain
