Finally you can download SmallFaces, a widget toolkit for
Seaside. By installing SmallFaces you can use in your Seaside applications
common GUI objects as TextFields, Buttons, ListBox, CheckBox, CheckBoxGroup,
RadioButton, RadioButtonGroup, etc.
The crucial benefit is getting rid of the tag idea, so basically you have
widget objects for the web, for which can configure visual aspects (layout,
appearance) and AJAX events (using SASE).
Web applications are growing every day, and with the explosion of the AJAX
technology few years ago, the web trends move towards desktop-like
applications, making a fuzzy limit between both. Those who experienced pure
desktop GUI developement (and believe the markup way to do things is fine
for simple user interfaces, but do not scale very well when complex
applications come), will feel the SmallFaces API a second nature.
