Subject Re: schema-driven data entry UI
Date Thu, 16 Dec 2010 02:44:21 GMT
I have been working on something like this. In my case I am building
documents inside of the couchdb that are templates. These templates are then
used by a javascript library to erect a UI for data entry.

I have written a little about it at although i
am behind in documenting what I'm doing.

If you're interested i be glad to send you more information
