A frontend editor for Symfony2 CMF with the help of VIE

Yesterday we started working on an editor for the Symfony2 Content Management Editor, the LiipVieBundle. We use VIE and – until something non-GPL comes along – the Aloha editor. VIE is a piece of javascript on top of backbone.js that handles storing data with a REST backend. In Symfony2, this is a breeze thanks to the FOSRestBundle. Sounds complicated? Its actually quite simple, at least for the user. I made a short video to show how it looks.
