It's been a week of struggling trying to find a working example of how to show a CRUD table in the frontend for an object that has, (let's say) only one field.

I've read the book, read tutorials, surf the digital waves, and nothing.

If somebody can give me advice or point me to a working example, I'll appreciate.

It doesn't have to be a complex example. Just a single example on how to render a CRUD table in the frontend.

Thank you very much in advance.

This might help...

I'm looking for a beginners guide to front end crud and was pleased to find Generic Views... but the usual SS approach to documentation is a bit disappointing I must say...

Just to let you guys know - I've had a need to use this and there were a couple of small changes required to get it to work the way I expected - I've forked it here and sent the changes to Ingo. Also just a couple of lines on how to get started - it really is very straightforward.

Hope this helps
