This plug-in has great potential. It will already save
significant development time in setting up client-side
validation and I’m sure it’s going to keep getting better.
Stop by the Grails Plugin Portal and check it out. You
can leave a comment with enhancement suggestions or
if you’ve tried it out, let others know what you think
with a rating. I’m giving it 5 stars!
I am really happy about this. It is nice to see that the things you do help other people. I guess that is what the open source community is all about. Anyway just wanted to express another thought.
I think the best things, the ones that rise above come from passion and believing "there has to be a better way". That's where the grails framework came from, where groovy came from, where Spring came from, Hibernate, hell even Java too one upon a time.
However another ingredient that means the difference between longevity or 15 seconds of fame is "coming from the trenches"... You can see that with grails.
Graeme Rocher built grails from is own real life experience of using web frameworks. That is why even now I find little gems of goodness in there. The framework helps you all the way from development to production. That is something special.
One last final thought... I love this quote just can't remember who said it.
A reasonable man changes and adapts to the world around him. The unreasonable man changes and adapts the world around him. Therefore all the innovation in the world lies in the hands of the unreasonable man :)
Ps. I have two new plug ins coming out this week. Again the came from the trenches of a need for them in my own app. I am sure you will love them.
