- [X] Make forms automagically put the cursor into the first field of a form.
- [X] Readonly widget variants
- [X] Use case: require (email or phonenumber; see
require_one_or_another in deformdemo).
- [X] Add a convention that allows a widget to specify the (logical)
resources it requires (e.g. ["foo.css", "jquery"]). Add an API
that allows you to retrieve all the logical resources required
by all widgets that are part of a form.
- [X] Provide a lame default widget for tuples in order to avoid ``
File "/Users/...deform/", line 92, in serialize raise
NotImplementedError`` during serialization or provide a better
error message (maybe a subclass of Widget that spits out a more
informative error message). (used TextInputCSV widget).
- [ ] Somehow prevent schemas that have sequence types (tuples and
sequences) that have no schema children from reaching the point
where we try to serialize them, as a hapless user will wind up
with a `` File "/Users/...../deform/", line 773, in
serialize item_field = field.children[0]`` exception instead of
a more sensible error message.
- [ ] Allow for single-field readonly renderings (e.g. on an add form,
the name must be provided, on an edit form the name cannot be

- [ ] CSRF:
<DanielHolth> I came up with a repoze.bfg.formish CSRF solution
that I don't entirely hate. The token stored on the
FormController is hmac(''.join(user_id, str(self.__class__),
request.url, csrf_secret), session_identifier). The main form
template inserts the token into the form if
hasattr(form.controller.csrf_token) and it's checked with a
decorator on the action method.
<DanielHolth> I tried setting
the token as a default value for a String() but then the form
will compute the correct csrf token when submitted without that
<wiggy> I use a CSRForm class which is derived from formish.Form
and every user gets a secret which is reset on login
