Sample Applications

Sample Applications for Fusebox are simple applications that illustrate certain concepts. Our library is growing and we hope you check back often to see whats new. Sample applications are divided by Fusebox version and most use the Model/View/Controller (MVC) design principle, which is recommended. A sample application will typically use a set of core files that were current as of the date the application was created. The applications may or may not be forward compatible with later versions.

Core files and skeleton applications can be downloaded from the core files section of this site.

If you have a sample application you would like to contribute, please contact us. Sample applications that we would like to see contributed include: blogging software, contact manager, forums, wiki.
