Raven Forms for Statamic Websites

Although I'd prefer it be bundled with Statamic, Raven Forms is an extremely easy-to-use forms solution for Statamic websites that allows you to use your own custom form markup, declare formsets declaratively via a YAML configuration file, capture form data as flat-files, email form data, neutralize spam via Akismet, and review and manage form submissions using a custom control panel complete with metrics and statistics.
