Nestgrid xml-like extensible user interface (GPL, w/ flash demo)

Posted 28 March 2013 - 03:53 PM

wanted to share my recent publication of the nestgrid user interface platform. It's somewhat TLDR :)/>, got screenshots, flash demo and codebase under Affero GPL for download. Quote:

This paper introduces nestgrid, a novel document format and direct manipulation user interface and describes an implementation of it available as a desktop AS3/AIR app and as a browser-based flash demo. At its most basic nestgrid is a novel interface for editing and viewing a particular type of xml document, or perhaps a novel type of tree structured spreadsheet document. It turns out, however, that much like the superficially simple text-based interfaces like "spreadsheet" and "html browser" nestgrid opens up new and profoundly useful ways of human-computer interaction.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You lost me at "highly structured". Try again to sell it to me. The first three words determine whether I make it to the end of the sentence. If they are exciting enough I might even read a paragraph. A highly structured, extensible wotsit might be great but this is the internet and you have kittens to compete with. Putting your flash demo before the fold might help too.

RE kittens, presumably to each his own. The link to the demo is here http://megaswf.com/file/2569831 but IMHO it helps to read the manual first.

ok, as possibly suggested by andrewsw, just fixed a bug on reloading an existing pad.
