           Summary: [chameleon] "Viewer" type widget for fast, truly simple
           Product: Chameleon
           Version: 1.99
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Widget
        AssignedTo: chameleon-dev at lists.maptools.org
        ReportedBy: dgadoury at dmsolutions.ca

Chameleon is intended to be an environment in which to *easily* deploy
customizable mapping applications. There is no doubt that chameleon applications
are highly customizable, but it could be argued that this cannot be done easily,
at least by beginner users. Chameleon is easy to use relative to PHP Mapscript
or pure cgi MapServer, but it is still not strictly easy, mainly because there
are so many widgets and because of things like shared resources, buttonizer etc.

It would be a great advantage to Chameleon users if there was  a truly easy,
quick deployment mode. In order to be really easy customizability and certain
functionality would need to be sacrificed, but this compromise would likely be
acceptable to those who want to quickly see some results. Once this mode of
operation is mastered, users can move on to more complex application
development. Such a mode would be advantageous for new users, trainers, for
business development and even for advanced application developers.
