How can I use the Sapphire framework apart from Silverstripe? Can you point me to where I can get the framework's documentation?

Hi Ryan, I appreciate your reply but still this documentation is about building "a silverstripe" application. I'm wondering if they have a sapphire documentation where SS is NOT in the picture.

ayandyan at the moment the docs are one and the same. Most concepts (security, forms, controllers, templates) are straight from sapphire. Build with these and you are using 'sapphire'. Currently even SiteTree's, pages are all sapphire based so really the documentation is all about 'sapphire' in general.

For 3.0 one of the goals is to separate out Sapphire and the CMS even more, whether this means separate documentation or websites, we're not sure yet!
