Has markaby been abandoned?

Recently discovered Markaby. Before I use it on a production system,
I’d
like to know if it is still being maintained? According to the change
log,
the last change was in February of 2006. Does this mean that the project
has
been abandoned? Or, at version 0.3 it was considered production stable
and
complete?

I have been using markaby for a bit now. And I think the reason for
why it’s not been updated for a while is that I can’t find anything to
improve. :slight_smile:
I think it’s safe for production use. Even if something strange
happens and something isn’t working for something you do then it’s no
like it overrides anything. You can always do a rhtml for exceptions.
I reccomend that you leave your layout as rhtml though if you have
external designers.

Thanks for the encourgement Jon. I’ll go ahead and use it. Your advice
about leaving the application layout alone is a good one. I my case, an
external designer probably won’t be brought in until Version 2.0. My
layout has dynamic menus based on login and permissions. It’s much
cleaner
if I can use Markaby.

Good suggestion. I probably don’t use partials as much as I should :slight_smile:

Wouldn’t those menus be at home in a markaby partial rather than
inside the layout. I at least find it better to leave all logic out of
the layout template and do things like menus and such things in
partials or helpers. I feel at least dirty if the layout has more code
than <%= side_menu_here %> and so on.

also look at using .4 or xhtml-careful:

is that branch really needed anymore? i did a svn up, and suddenly my
entire site (which used features introduced in xhtml-careful) broke, but
switching the symlink to the trunk fixed it…

my only remaining gripe ( i gues i should file a bug) is for whatever
reason, in its definition of XHTML, yo cant assign any attributes to
table/tr/td, which throws an error until modifying the source to allow
it…
