The Fusebox 4.1 cheat sheet

posted under category: Fusebox on November 16, 2005 at 1:00 am by MrNate

One thing I've always wanted when working with Fusebox 4, is a quick XML cheat sheet. What goes in the fusebox.xml file? What was that verb tag again for my circuit.xml? Was that returnvariable, contentvariable or just variable?

Googling and searching only found the PDFs for a $75 book, which is helpful but not ideal, and miscellaneous sources, too spread out to be useful. Since there wasn't one, I had to create one myself, and now that it's done, I got permission and am sharing it with the community at large.

So, without further ado, the Fusebox XML Cheat Sheet (with a little bonus info at the end)

P.S., I also added a print stylesheet, so feel free to print it out and hang it on your wall, or whatever.

P.P.S., Fuseboxers, feel free to check my work and make corrections and suggestions - thanks!

Too old to comment!

Jeff Peters has written a great little book explains all of the FB Grammer. Check it out a Cafe Press. The title is What's New in Fusebox 4.1

Brian, I have no problems with it going up on, just please give credit and a link if you grab the content.

For a neat idea, you could screen-scrape it using xpath, to keep your content fresh with mine nightly or weekly or something :)

BTW, stay tuned for a few more installments of my fusebox posts and treats for the community.
