i got the following 404 when attempting to download the zip:

Not Found

The requested URL /ext/Kanban.tar.gz was not found on this server.

p.s. what's the difference between this plugin and JScout?

ups, forget to upload sources.

Well, jScout is mostly purposed for loading your own packages (ux'es etc) and it is optimized that way. It should be used when you exactly know that your package will actually use the XXX feature from package YYY.

This toolkit is for loading ext library itself - for example for cases, when you need only limited functionality and don't want to include full 550kb ext sources on every page. It can be used as adaptive web-server (install and forget) or custom building tool (but without "checkbox hunting").

I love this project.Do you think you'll add caching in the future?

Thanks ) Well, server-side caching is already there. Single source files and whole sequences - they are cached via Cache::FastMmap (http://search.cpan.org/%7Erobm/Cache-FastMmap-1.28/FastMmap.pm). It is also possible to improve source file requests, that way, that they will look like static file requests and will be cached by browser also.
It will be implemented in the future releases.

Why did you choose GPL?

27 Jul 2008, 8:44 AM
As I know Ext itself is GPL3 (or commercial), so since this soft is ext-based, license choice is predetermined..

27 Jul 2008, 9:19 AM
People can't use it in commercial applications if it is GPL.

If anyone want to use it in commercial application - then you can contact me via pm.
