After countless hours of development, many real-world deployments, and a few internal name changes, Rivet Logic officially launches the Crafter rivet to help with enterprise WCM implementations.
Crafter rivet is a high performance, yet flexible, content delivery framework that consumes web content that’s published from Alfresco WCM and delivers them to a variety of presentation-tier frameworks and technologies for building content-rich Web applications.
We first started development of Crafter rivet back in 2007, when we worked with Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions on their kaptest.com implementation. This successful implementation won Rivet Logic and Kaplan the JBoss Innovator of the Year Award in 2008. Since then, we’ve continued to develop Crafter rivet and to utilize it on several customer projects. Based on this success, we’ve decided to contribute back to the open source community as an open source project.
We will continue to invest in its development, and we expect to use Crafter rivet as a basis for many of our future WCM implementations. The response from some of our most recent customers has been outstanding – we have projects underway across a variety of vertical markets, and spanning several different technology stacks. For example, we are currently helping different clients implement ColdFusion, PHP, Seam, Surf, Grails and Portal front-ends for their Alfresco WCM solutions.
