I've started development on a new application for ClayCMS named Filters. The app uses the Services API to provide filters and other text/data handling features to other applications. The HTML filter will be the first filter to be added to the new app. It validates and tidies HTML output, while filtering out anything not allowed.
As a service provider, the Filters app will allow other applications to extend it. That means new filters can be added via other applications to perform functions like autolinking, wiki pages, and any other feature that transforms text before it's displayed.
I'll try to write up a blog on how applications use the available services in the near future.
