Hello, folks!

Following Drago Rosson's introduction of Barricade.js and our discussion in ML about possibility of using it in Merlin [1], I've decided to change the plans for PoC: now the goal for Merlin's PoC is to implement Mistral Workbook builder on top of Barricade.js. The reasons for that are:

* To better understand Barricade.js potential as data abstraction layer in Merlin, I need to learn much more about its possibilities and limitations than simple examining/reviewing of its source code allows. The best way to do this is by building upon it. * It's becoming too crowded in the HOT builder's sandbox - doing the same work as Drago currently does [2] seems like a waste of resources to me (especially in case he'll opensource his HOT builder someday just as he did with Barricade.js).

Drago, it would be to everyone's benefit if your HOT builder efforts were developed on a public git repository, no matter how functional it is currently.

Is there any chance you can publish what you're working on to https://github.com/dragorosson or rackerlabs for a start?

* Why Mistral and not Murano or Solum? Because Mistral's YAML templates have simpler structure than Murano's ones do and is better defined at that moment than the ones in Solum.

There already some commits in https://github.com/stackforge/merlin and since client-side app doesn't talk to the Mistral's server yet, it is pretty easy to run it (just follow the instructions in README.md) and then see it in browser at http://localhost:8080. UI is yet not great, as the current focus is data abstraction layer exploration, i.e. how to exploit Barricade.js capabilities to reflect all relations between Mistral's entities. I hope to finish the minimal set of features in a few weeks - and will certainly announce it in the ML.
