Fabrik is truly amazing in the time that it save developing applications with joomla. We have had to create a few custom modules from scratch and what a pain that was. I think for us that process has almost completely been replaced by Fabrik. I think that once I learn a little more about where to use custom code and how to implement my customizations this will for sure be the answer to custom application development for joomla for me. On the support I must say that these fella should be giving seminars on how to do it right. We have paid support contracts with companies of various sizes that charge far more and deliver WAY WAY less for me these guys are the bee's Knees.
Fabrik is for everyone I'm telling you try it - it does have a bit of a learning curve but its short and worth it. Plus you’re not alone these guys are right there backing you up.
by the way joomla.org admins - I can not sign in with my standard user name DWH4L3 which I have had for 3 years - I had to create a new sign on to give this review.
