Display Tag being ported to Ruby/Rails

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. ;-)

Is Laszlo a waste of time?

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.
