Found via Brian McCallister - a codefest grant has been awarded to Dave Tiu to reproduce the Display Tag in Ruby/Rails.
Codefest Grant recipients:
1. Ruby Displaytag (Dave Tiu)
A port to Ruby/Rails of a popular Java/Struts library for displaying
and interacting with HTML table presentations.
Maybe if I wait a little longer to write my first Rails app - they'll add client-side validation too.
According to Rife founder Geert Bevin, Laszlo ain't all it's cracked up to be:
It's a shame, I really had huge expectations about Laszlo and even tried to sell it to a customer. I'm glad that project was cancelled or I would be in deep trouble.
Under normal circumstances, I'd dismiss this as FUD, but Geert sounds like he did his homework on this one.
