SMERF Released!

etienne @ 5:21 pm


Update 11 January 2008: SMERF web site completed.

I’m happy to announce the release of SMERF V0.0.1!

I’m still in the process of setting up the official web site but the source is now available for download. The README file contains a lot of information about the plugin including installation and configuration notes. You can also checkout the documentation in the rdoc directory which includes the API docs and the README in a more readable format.

There are several ways to download SMERF:

Direct download

Get it from RubyForge


**Create a new smerf directory in your /vendor/plugins directory and change into the new directory

Check out the stable release

svn checkout http://smerf.rubyforge.org/svn/stable .

or Check out a particular release

svn checkout http://smerf.rubyforge.org/svn/tags/REL-0.0.1 .

or Check out the development code

svn checkout http://smerf.rubyforge.org/svn/trunk .

See the README for details of how to install and configure the plugin.

Until I get my bug tracker sorted out if you have any problems please feel free to contact me on smerf at cascadia dot com dot au.

    :) Works great for me.

    I’ve found one miniscule trivial case for the UI.

    I might suggest a demo to canvass people on how they will use this. :)

    Great stuff–thanks a lot for putting this together. It was very quick to implement our user feedback survey with SMERF. Thanks!

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the feedback it’s much appreciated, and I’m really happy to hear you found it useful, makes all the effort worthwhile :-)

    Keep an eye on the “official” web site for the plugin at http://smerf.cascadia.com.au for updates and enhancements.

    Hi Etienne,

    I’ve just started using the SMERF plugin and it works well. I’m currently building an interface for our admin system.

    I notice that there is no option for a select field type. Is there a reason for this?

    Hi Alan,

    If you don’t mind I’ve moved your comment to the SMERF web site so others may benefit from your comments.

    I’ve only added the field types that I needed to complete my project, I was hoping that people would suggest field types they would like and I could then add it for them.

    I will add the select type and upload an update for you.
