What is Thor?
Thor is a collection of utilities that allow for the manipulation and application of a custom form description in XML (we’ll call it thor XML). Thor provides the following core functionality:
- Through a flash-based UI, create and edit thor XML.
- Translate thor XML into Disco elements.
- Save and retrieve data that corresponds to thor XML.
Thor includes a flash based form creation tool that provides a simple UI to create and edit basic HTML forms. The flash tool reads and write thor XML files. The creation tool, while it continues to meet our basic needs at Carleton, is in need of an update.
