What is WizardForge?
WizardForge is a platform on which you can create wizards without any (or with limited) programming effort. In WizardForge the
term 'wizard' means a sequence of user interactions (which can be described in a flowchart) to which a template can be applied.
This allows you to create:
- Problem Solvers: a person skilled in a certain subject formalizes his/her
knowledge of this subject to the benefit of the public.
- Online Quizzes, Questionnaires, Polls and Petitions:
- Templating: add user supplied information to a template text and/or graphic.
- Software Configuration: software developers and system administrators are increasingly confronted with configuration files. Almost every framework or
application requires one or multiple configuration files. Often one needs to edit only a limited number of parameters while the
other parameters can keep their default values. For the present-day IT worker it becomes hard to stay a specialist in all the
applications and frameworks s/he uses on a regular basis. So the goal is that the time-consuming RTFM
is replaced by executing a wizard to generate a valid configuration file.
- Calculations: wizards that apply some calculations on the supplied input.
WizardForge uses the open source project wizard4j
There are a number of reasons why you would like to register at WizardForge:
- To create a wizard. More information on how to do this is available in the section Creating Wizards.
- To subscribe to events at the WizardForge website, e.g. new news, new wizards, new forum messages. It is
possible to receive either daily, weekly or monthly summaries of these events. Newly registered users are automatically subscribed
to a monthly news summary. If you don't like that, you can change your subscription settings.
- To participate in the forum discussions. Each wizard has a forum associated. This forum is a good place to post a review,
ask a question, etc... about a specific wizard.
- To contact a wizard contributor. If you would like to get in touch with the contributor of a wizard, it is possible to send
him/her a private message (e.g. to suggest an enhancement, to discuss a potential bug, to propose some collaboration, etc...).
