DHTML Calendar and the Has_finder Plug-in

This week I stumbled across many interesting things, but here are the two most valuable for your Friday enjoyment.

Pretty and functional DHTML calendar for web applications. This one is the best I’ve seen so far. It’s used in some of my favorite web apps and I’m using it in my own projects. Easy styling, nice integration, ability to show date / time in one field and store the computer-digestible version in another, very quick start through lots of examples, PDF documentation.

And now the amazing has_finder Rails plug-in to convert many standard single-line finder methods into a nice declarative beauty. I’m just beginning to use it, and the Rails edge has already adopted it. Kosher, with no side-effects.

I’m thinking of making this kind of posts more frequent. It’s a nice reminder to me and a great source to those who value my advice.
