Developer's Log: Version 3.0 released and moved to GitHub

Added by Francois Suter 11 months ago

The road to devlog version 3.0 has been long and bumpy indeed. Years ago Fabien Udriot started a brand new version for TYPO3 4.5, using ExtJS for the backend module. The work was never finished and ExtJS fell from grace. The project lay dormant for a couple of years. Then an attempt was made to base the devlog on TYPO3's logging API, but this also faltered along the way.

About last year I finally found the motivation to give the project yet another fresh start. Alternating sprints and breaks, the new version was eventually ready. It is entirely rewritten, with a squeaky clean code base. The backend module relies on jQuery and DataTables for paginating, searching and filtering. The "Clear log entries" feature is now available from a convenient drop-down.

The devlog also now uses a concept of log writers, which makes it possible to route devlog calls to different outputs/storages. By default, the extension provides a database and a file writer.

Last but not least, I moved the extension to GitHub. Hopefully this will help people contribute and maybe also shift ownership to someone else, as I don't feel like continuing to maintain this extension. New home:

Documentation: Inside TYPO3 updated

Added by Francois Suter about 1 year ago

This manual had last been updated for TYPO3 4.2, and even then it wasn't a full refresh. Some parts were pretty old and some screenshots dated all the way back to TYPO3 3.6.0-dev. Needless to say that tackling this manual was akin to doing an archeological dig!

There is not much left of the original content, since TYPO3 had changed so much in the meantime. I have rewritten quite a few chapters entirely, but also removed quite a lot of them, either because their content was not relevant anymore or because it was found somewhere else. In particular, the walkthrough of many backend features is now in the Getting Started Tutorial. Also everything relating to versioning and workspaces was moved to the manual of the "workspaces" system extension, which also benefited from a full update in the process.

What appears to me now is that the separation of Core APIs and Inside TYPO3 is not so clear anymore and could probably be reviewed, with content moved between the two for better consistency. However this does not seem very urgent, nor absolutely necessary for now. The downside is probably a bit of confusion for the readers.

Due to the fact that much content could be removed rather than having to be updated, I also reached this milestone faster than expected (although this update was still more than 100 hours of work!). This leaves me with quite a few hours of budget to tackle other manuals beyond the originally planned items in my budget request.
