I think I have just had a great idea for an instant admin interface for my new Grails app. I have almost completed my new web app and was just thinking that I could really do with simple admin interface. So I came up with this idea.
I can pull out my current domain classes out into a plugin. I can then install this plugin into the main application. Then the main app is back to normal
Then i can create a new app called XXX-admin. I then install the domain classes plugin into the admin app then generate scaffold controllers/views for the domain.
This then gives me an instant admin interface.
Gonna try this out and will write again about how it goes.
