Fusebox Web Application Standard: I read a book on Fusebox a number of years ago, and I found a site using it today which jogged my memory. It’s an MVC implementation which was originally written for ColdFusion, but which they’ve expanded into a language-neutral “methodology”:
To build a Fusebox application, a developer breaks his or her application down into actions (fuseactions) and then puts pages and scripts (fuses) together in a directory (circuit).
The HTTP request will call specific actions like…
…and the associated fuses are executed by the circuit controller.
I thought it was a good idea, except for a the goofy URLs (though nothing that mod_rewrite couldn’t fix). You can tell a Fusebox site by the “fuseaction” in the URL.
