PureMVC Documentation

So, at work we're doing a big Flex project in PureMVC. (I don't know anything about ActionScript, nor Flex, so this should be interesting). We chose PureMVC over Cairngorm because it looks like it might support the huge code base we're going to have cleaner. Plus, I can wrap my head around the framework a little easier.. probably from my Python MVC roots. I think people just think Cairngorm is simpler because they're used to it.

Anyways. I just wanted to point out that PureMVC has some of the best documentation I've ever seen. I printed out the pdf of the Framework overview, double sided to conserve paper, and it has exactly one page of written text and one page of diagrams per section, so you get the text about the view, and on the facing page, all the UML.

The little things make me happy.
