XFDL with PHP 2…

Recent progress with doing XFDL forms in PHP.  I put some time into this project recently figuring that this web based viewer would be the most applicable.  Think if AKO’s MyForms, a setup where you can pass forms from one user to the next to get it filled out and signed; if that program never needed to leave the web?  With doing XFDL forms in PHP, that is possible!  My code is a mess right now so I will put up the PHP, Javascript for the page on a later post.

For now, go to the old version to see what the forms should be like and go to the new version to see progress on the viewer.

Watch Out! Here comes a dart!!

It’s like if php and java met on a lonely night, dart would be the result.

Google Dart, a new language developed to be the ‘new javascript’ is soon to be available from Google.  Check out the webpage that’s set up to show you the language and give a nice tutorial.  It has an interpreter on the page so you can tinker and get a feel for it.  It seems to me, after playing with the language a bit, it’s like if php and java met on a lonely night, dart would be the result.  An advantage of this language, is unlike HTML5, you will not have to wait for a browser to be made to understand this language.  It can be cross-compiled to javascript on the server side until browsers catch up!  Unfortunately, this is not something I’ve been able to apply to a live server, yet.
