Zope on Rails Project

gmane.comp.web.zope.announce: "Does zope really have to be hard to learn? We don't think so. We are developing an easy way for medical professionals to create zope web GUI at http://www.medicinebrain.com. The idea is to make zope at least as easy to use as ruby on rails. We are looking for ideas and criticism of the freely available zrails code. Currently available is a zexp that contains an html framework, an easy to modify form processor, some web widgets, and database scripts. There is also a separate application called 'Nanabush' that processes html files into zpt pages. The application splits each form element off into a script widget. This produces a model-view-controller architecture that is completely edit-able via web browser. Next up will be a more extensive html framework and more html widgets. The plans for Nanabush include a way to develop zope database applications in openoffice and migrate them to zope. The combination of zope and Openoffice 2 will make a powerful workflow solution."
