Tue Jan 14 2003 23:07: Got the second draft of my abstract done, and not much else. I can't find any real prior work on this, which is weird; can anyone help? I'm looking for frameworks which allow you to get this sort of interface by defining in a text file the options you want to be settable. The closest things I can find are Scarab and a feature of Zope. Both of those are oriented toward dynamically creating simple data gathering forms rather than letting the developer define a static set of settable configuration options with arbitrarily complex logic. There's also Intake, which lets you develop all your form interaction this way, sort of.
