Just pushed several commits for the Blocks app to Clay. It now has the blocks manager, with the ability to add and edit blocks. I also created a test block named Text, which just shows plain text. Still some rough edges to work out and I may tweak the db design a little more. It is functional, to an extent. There isn't a way to display the actual blocks or groups of blocks yet, but that should be around the corner. Clay really makes development easy and fast. The services module is a huge time saver, otherwise I would have had to create two additional tables and write the backend code for them. Instead, I got to reuse what is already there, which was the whole idea in the first place :) Up to three individual services (although the blocks are a little different, they don't actually use the service interface except to add/edit blocks), more to come and each saves at least 2 database tables, maybe more.
