Seafox for Seaside

August 2, 2010 22:15:14.626

Joachim wrote about Seafox again - it's an interesting idea: a Firefox plugin (look in the lower right corner of the browser for the icon) that examines the page you're on and drops Seaside code into the browser window for it.

It's a neat idea, but I have two caveats after having given it a brief try:

  • The methods it generates are huge - if you use this, be prepared for some serious refactoring :)
  • Given the wide range of pages out there, YMMV with the results. In my initial attempts, I ran into results that didn't work out

Now, before I end up sounding too negative, it's an 0.1 release, and it's absurd to expect such a thing to handle every web page out there. It's a cool idea, and could give you a nice start from a designer's proposed page layout.
