Making the Opf3 Wizard open source

Aug 22, 2009 at 9:27 PM

Hi everyone!

I am debating whether making the wizard also open source. The possible ways to go are: make it open source or discontinue it completely.

My problem with the wizard is that the code isn't that clean as it could be.

What are your thoughts?

I think you should release it anyway. Some ideas there might be useful

I agree with StGolem, the wizard is a great tool.

Hmmm... it should probably be open source. But be aware of it not being the cleanest code on earth :P

Just curious if you've made any decisions on making the Wizard open source.  I'm evaluating Opf3 for my company use and so far I like what I see.  We are tied to Pervasive SQL for the foreseeable future, and I haven't found any others that support it out of the box.  I can't seem to get the Wizard to work with Pervasive though, so seeing the code might allow me to figure it out / make it work.

Hi Dave,

there has not been a decision made on that... We should probably release the source code for the wizard. It seems that there is some interest.

I'm a beginner Opf3 user, and I think that the wizard could be a great help if it goes open source.

Don't worry about the clean state of the code.., it works, that's the important thing.


Best regards,
