[wp-hackers] Admin Construction Abstraction

I use phpHtmlLib for forms within WordPress. The 3.x branch of phpHtmlLib
went off in a direction of a PHP MVC Framework but the 2.x branch still
works fine. It has a whole slew of classes for constructing and working
with forms as well as some useful widgets for displaying content.
I had used phpHtmlLib on a project prior to working with WordPress so when I
started on my Swim Team plugin (which is very forms intensive) I was loath
to code a bunch of forms by hand. I ended up turning the 2.x phpHtmlLib
branch into a WordPress plugin, you can find it in the plugin repository.
The examples on the phpHtmlLib site are no longer there but if you install
the plugin and visit
http://yourdomain.com/wp-content/plugins/phphtmllib/examples you will see a
list of example forms and widgets. There is also a doc directory.
I didn't write the original library but I did contribute to it later on and
did the work to turn it into a WP plugin.

These all look good - having had a quick look, particularly at the
Stack Exhange thread, seems that
http://github.com/scribu/wp-scb-framework/ - seems this is the most
comprehensive and pitched at the right level of abstraction for a
developer who wants to roll something out quickly.
I am sort of surprised as WordPress becomes more powerful this sort of
thing isn't built into Core.
All the best,
