Creating a FAQ page or knowledgebase is one of the musts for a web application. However, sometimes, this is not enough and users may require for more details.

In such situations "site tours" or even "page tours" become very handy as users can learn any details about the application visually.

There are 20+ components including charts, calendar, data table, popup layer, tabbed pane & more.


The OpenFaces validation framework enables you to use standard JSF validators on the client side by assigning them to any input component, both from JSF and OpenFaces library.

The library is very well documented & supported with a set of examples.

    Many PHP developers use print_r() & var_dump() for debugging which output hard to read/unformatted results.

    Krumo is a replacement for these functions which can display structured information about any PHP variable.


    Once Krumo is ran, the output is displayed in a collapsible DHTML tree built around the structure of the dumped PHP variable.

    Also, it speeds up the debugging process by the ability of turning it "off" rather than disabling every dumping route inside the code.

    Krumo runs on PHP 5 & to see how useful it can be, check the examples.
