Skill planner (beta testing)

    First, the goods: http://arad.ofli.es/

    What is it?
    It's a work-in-progress skill planner. Duh.

    Because I wanted to plan my grappler build and don't have Excel installed for the spreadsheet version! Since ASPS often takes quite a while to update, I decided to write my own planner over Christmas break as a fun little side project. The UI is very heavily influenced by ASPS, but I imagine the backend is quite different.

    My primary motivation with the planner was to make it easy to maintain and, more importantly, accessible for maintenance.

    What do I mean by that? I wrote an entire frontend (protected behind authentication, of course) to handle updating data in the planner. Several people will have access to it, so that updating for skill changes or new classes doesn't depend solely on me. The actual planning part of the planner is dynamically created based on the data! As skills are modified there is no reason to have to edit the code!

    If I ever stop playing DFO or can't maintain the codebase, I'll be sure to publicly release the source code (I may do this anyways after some cleanup) so that anybody else can take over.

    What do I need?
    For now, the only complete (I hope it is) class is mgrappler. Use the planner, try to break it, and please report any mistakes/bugs in this thread. I'll also be extending invitations to people to act as maintenance beta testers and to focus on getting the rest of the mfighter data in there ASAP.

    For the other classes I would rather wait and encourage people to use ASPS. I have more ideas for easier maintenance, but it requires some low level refactoring and I'd rather get the builder out for male fighters sooner.

    There is a lot more I'll want to do with this eventually, but I'll also welcome suggestions. Unfortunately, I do work a full time job and will have limited time for maintenance except on the weekends.

    (also I need to finish levelling my grappler to 60)

    Pushed onto the front page, because people need to see this.

    Nice and clean cut look.
    Only error I ran into so far was it taking the incorrect SP values for Crusader skills: [Grace of Protection] [Grace of Courage] and [Heaven's Harmony]. Skill calc taking off 20/20/10 respectively instead of their listed level 1 SP costs 100/100/100.

    Aside from that, no real problems with it. Working great!

    Just fixed that in the new version, as well as some other things. :)
