Getting started with the 2018 rewrite. Initial configuration done.
I started working on this framework as a hobby project back in 2009 before entering the web development industry. It was a labor of love, and writing this framework gave me valuable experience that I was able to use on the job later.
Since that time, the framework has been left sitting here
This year I'm going to begin rewriting Pith from scratch,
incorporating everything I've learned in the industry
The new version will be designated as
Various edits and fixes from the last couple months.
Finished work on the form generation system
New form template: "Clarent"
Major progress on the Form System:
New CAPTCHA object, security token system, and checkbox-grid for the form generation system.
Pith Framework 0.5.6.4 (alpha release 19) features several improvements to the highlighter object, and improvements to the form system object.
Roadmap for Pith 0.5
New plan / roadmap for finishing the features for Pith 0.5
Release adds several new features and bug fixes, including direct support for database transactions.
A few minor changes and additions:
The main addition in this release is the new Highlighter Object for displaying highlighted source code in an HTML page.
Other than that there are a few minor fix-ups: fixed an error that sometimes happened while disconnecting from the database; fixed the database error that was happening during the install process; changed the toEntities( ) function in the Filter object to no longer strip out tab chars.
Several major updates to the database object.
Back working on Pith again, this release contains all the added features from this summer that hadn't been released yet. Pith 0.5.3.0 (alpha release 12) adds features to the user system, the admin panel, and the database object.
Making progress on the user system for Pith, the next release will include a user session object and a user management area in the admin panel.
