Publisher description for Canvas ColdFusion Wiki

Canvas ColdFusion Wiki program icon

Canvas is a ColdFusion Wiki built to allow for community-based editing of content. It follows basic Wiki standards by allowing anyone to edit content, while keeping careful track of the History of each document added to the Wiki. Canvas was built using Model-Glue. Canvas has a powerful API system that I am quite proud of. PaGE editing is supported in two ways. First off - there are a set of simple transformations that are done to your content. So for example, to support bold text, you simply do +text+. For italics, you use underscores. Now - what is cool about this is that all of these rules are methods in one CFC. So to add a new rule, you simply write the method. The hint attribute is automatically picked up and displayed in the editing instructions text. The API goes further though. Along with simple formatting rules, there is a feature I call "Variable Components." These are components that can do more powerful things with your page. So for example, to put the last updated value in the page, you simply do {lastupdated}. As soon as Canvas SEES {something}, it runs the render method on a CFC named something. As with the rendering methods, Canvas will read the documentation from the CFC and automatically display it to the end user.
