Fabrik gives you the power to create forms and tables that run inside Joomla! without requiring knowledge of mySQL and PHP. Then feed your data into Google Maps, Charts or an AJAX based calendar.

With Fabrik you can create CCK applications that range in complexity from simple contact forms to complex applications such as a job application site or bug tracking systems.

Functionality

Fabrik has great functionality - in theory you can do great stuff with it. But for complex needs, hit a bug & you may be stuffed.

20
Ease of use

Huge no. of options. For simple stuff, then you only need basic knowledge of SQL, PHP and Javascript. Otherwise...

10
Support

Unless you pay, developer support very variable. Support from other expert users declining because they get no recognition for their efforts

10
Documentation

Wiki is ok but dated. Training videos are no more. May need to experiment a lot to get things to work.

I used this to: No longer using - projects abandoned as developer will not merge fixes or enhancements created by users, and only fix bugs they fancy fixing. Users not paying for support need to rely on community experts, but community experts needs are ignored so their support is declining.

Ease of use

Requires a lot of learning. Is a complex system, so that would be OK if we could get support in a timely manner

I used this to: I have it on my website and my clients' website. However, if I don't get immediate support and if they don't take away access of non Fabrik person to all of Fabriks' forum profiles giving her access as a super user to all Fabrik clients' website it will be removed from all!
