Work in (good) progress
The last release of External Import dates back to nearly 1 year ago and the BE module is looking bad in more recent versions of TYPO3. So what's cooking?
I have started a long while ago revamping the BE module and dropping all legacy code, but I then had to care for much other stuff, TYPO3 Core, documentation, and also taking a bit of time to relax ;-) Last week I started work again on what will eventually be version 2.0. I braced myself and tackled the ExtJS challenge. ExtJS is not easy to learn and the documentation is not very helpful. Still I managed to transform the BE module listing into a ExtJS grid and all AJAX calls were replaced with ExtDirect calls.If you want to check this out, just grab the latest trunk version, but beware that there are some missing features:
- the synchronization forms are not yet displayed
- the listing of non-synchronizable tables has disappeared for now (the listing is the one of synchronizable tables)
Barring these two little problems, the BE module is usable and the rest of the code is functional. I would be glad if some adventurers would check it out and send feedback.
