LightFront 0.3.0 has been released!

It's finally out!

I've finally released my pet project: A lightweight CF MVC framework I call LightFront.

If you're familiar with Sean Corfield's FW/1 framework, you'll find that they are quite similar, so similar in fact that I nearly stopped working on LightFront.

FW/1 is best designed for a new application. LightFront's good for that, too, but it's also a little easier to work with existing applications. First off, it's designed to work with CFC-based controllers, but it can also support old-school Fusebox-style applications, too, by supporting switch files.

That said, you don't need a controller for everything, and that's part of the magic to help you convert legacy websites. If you know where to call your views, just call them... you can even go more than two levels deep!

LightFront is designed to be SIMPLE... VERY SIMPLE. In some ways, it's not really a framework at all. It's a single CFC that's only 207 lines long at the time of writing.

The initial download is pretty straightforward. A basic site with some how-to's shown in the code. Not all the FAQs are in place yet, so don't balk too badly if you get a 404 error on some of them.

The zip and the repository are being updated at a fast pace, so check often for changes.

I've created a Google Group for LightFront here:

The Subversion repository can be found here...

I hope you find LightFront interesting!
