Thanks for the comments Deacon.
We agree that the Restful Objects development is very significant, and very much the future.
despite what the REST purist naysayers are saying
Yes - that is particularly galling, because, quite frankly, if some of these people actually knew what they were talking about they would realise that Restful Objects is as pure a form of REST as it is possible to get. Critically, Restful Objects adheres 100%
the letter and
the spirit of REST. As is so often the case, the self-appointed guardians of pure REST are actually guarding their own particular interpretation of REST or, worse, conflating REST with some specific other architectural
pattern that they are promoting.
Spiro is our next big thing. We have put this into a separate project on GitHub, because it isn't tied to the Naked Objects implementation - it will work against any server that implements the Restful Objects standard. (It just happens that Naked Objects is
the first complete implementation of that standard, though others, including Isis as mentioned by Dan, are following rapidly).
complete generic UIs that are built on top of Spiro.Models; Spiro.Modern adopts the 'modern' or 'flat' style of UI - bright colours, minimal adornment, touch-friendly.
Spiro.Models is fully developed and tested. Spiro.Modern is still under development, though the code is now available. We will be working towards a proper release of the latter this summer.
