Dataface is coming along slowing but surely. It is still only publicly available via sourceforge CVS but it is growing in features. I played around with soap a little over the holidays and have begun to build a Web service interface. Next on the slate is Dataface Desktop Edition !! Watch out filemaker, open source just got a whole lot better!
I have started up a Sourceforge project for Dataface. There are no releases yet, but the CVS is up-to-date. Check it out at http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/dataface/.
Tonight I am working on adding a flexible permissions system to my PHP application ‘Dataface’. I have a predisposition towards using PEAR classes where I can so naturally I decided to try LiveUser. Unfortunately the documentation is scarce, and all but to-the-point. I was, however impressed with this short article (http://jystewart.net/process/archives/2005/07/configuring-liveuser) that cuts to the chase on how to set up Live User. I recommend this one to anyone looking for User management in a PHP application.
