Re: Coursera: Free online courses from top unis

Stanford University's free online cryptography course will run again on 9 September. If you have an interest in security I highly recommend it (again!).

It will be followed by a second extension course afterwards.

IRC Channel

Hi Guys,

Skype is great for voice and video calling, but I'm not really enamored by it's chat capabilities. Also, as I described earlier, one of my requirements for a discussion channel was to have a web-based access to it.

Jabber would have been nice, but that's a P@1N to setup, at least the services I found until now. However, as an alternative I have found a web IRC client called KiwiIRC. No setup required, and you can easily connect by clicking on this link.

Improvements would be nice, such as being able to logon automatically with your site name and credentials, but having a real-time discussion facility is already a big step ahead.

IRC will work with an installed IRC client on your machine (mIRC was tested, Trillian and others should work as well).

Re: Chatting options

I looked at mibbit, and also at KiwiIRC. I'll try to see if I can get KiwiIRC included on the site.

Jabber would be nice, but I don't know of any integrated web-based solutions (that we don't have to setup ourselves). We don't have the expertise in the team to set something like that up.

Re: Chatting options

mibbit looks nice. I'll see if we can organise a test in the near future.
I seem to remember Google did some tiny changes of their own to make GTalk 'non-standard'. It would be cool to do though.

Thanks for the mibbit link, didn't found out about that one before!

Re: Chatting options

http://mibbit.com/ is very good tool for chatting in IRC.

Also, I experimented with Jabber and iCMS. I think is better solution. Because You can chat by using own gmail account. However I wasn't succefull. Frameworks that use Jabber are not very easy to understand :(

Re: Chatting options

I considered IRC as well, but web-based chat seemed easier to find php-based clients for.

The downside is that you need to have specific sofware installed, so from that point of view, IRC is not better than skype.

I want to concentrate things as much as possible on the website. If there is a good PHP IRC client available somewhere, that would be a perfect match.

I'll see if I find one that is easy to setup. Does anyone has experience with a specific web-based client or library perhaps?

Re: Chatting options

I think IRC is much more easier. You can setup in a lot of programs, like Thunderbird, Pidgin or else.

You need enter a user name, a server (chat.freenode.net) and the room name #impresscms

The benefit is, it's works on any platforms.

Chatting options

While Skype is a nice short-term solution, it has its drawbacks. Not everybody uses Skype, and Skype was conceived to make calls, and that's what it does best.

i'm looking for a web-based (free)chat application that we can use on our servers to host discussions on.

We have dhchat in the addons, but it's old and unsupported, so I'm not sure if we should risk it on our servers.

I also found phpfreechat, ajaxchat and phpopenchat. I'm trying out the first 2, as the last one had a latest release in 2005.

Any other tools that can be installed on our current PHP server you know of?

Re: Sourcetree is now available for windows

Looks interesting, I'll give it a go and see if it works for me. I tried SmartGit, but I couldn't really get the hang of it.

At the moment, I'm just managing my Git and Svn repositories in PhpStorm, for which we have a project license by the way. So if any developers (theme/code) want to use it, let me know and I'll pass on the license details.

My favorite GIT client is now available on WIndows if you are unhappy with yours you should give this one a go. I use it on Mac everyday and it is really nice.

Google Reader will go, alternatives?

I know Google is trying to get everyone on Google+, but I like to have the focused content that I assembled on my Google Reader.

I had a look at pulse, but that's a huge mess (can't find how to import my opml file with feeds). On top of that, rumour is that pulse could besnapped up by linkedin, so the continuity of that service isn't guaranteed either.
Digg, itself a resurrected service, confirmed it is building a replacement RSS reader at the moment.

Does the demise of Google Reader bother you, or will life go on without it? What are your strategies to cope?

I generally agree with Will, but some ideas:

* Can we put together a 1.3 compatible/maintained module pack, and make it available either as part of the core system download (best) or include a link to it on the downloads page / get it now box so people can find it easily?


I've promised this before - i'd like to speak with 63rd from the German forum and see what we can do on this.

* Re. nice URLs, this should be fairly easy to implement, depending on "how nice" you wanted them. It could probably be done via a very simple module and index redirect, I will start a new thread on that one shortly.


Excellent - there's been a few more bits of information since your post, including about Symfony 2 routing - which could be worth investigating as well!

* Re. integrating content, a single core publishing interface would be great and would certainly help with nice URLs and site wide tagging, although it might be a lot of work.


I think this would be easier when the module pack is done - but agreed

* Re. editors, this is another of my bugbears but if a common hook system is developed I'll try (no promises) to integrate a WYSIWYM editor that ties users down to a range of preset styles, rather than letting them rampage with a wild selection of font sizes and colours.


Definately worth speaking with McDonald about his great Tiny work

* Re. site redesign, I would be very happy to help with this, although I'm not sure how compatible my ideas are with everyone else (eg. roll sites into one). If I get involved I will want to change things wah ha haaaaa :)


Give me or David a shout when our time zones match - and that goes for anyone else as well!

Re: old editor settings

  • david

Yes, I think this could certainly do with being removed.

Even if, we simply remove the option being visible to begin with, and remove the values post 2.0 - as it would give chance for people to have their content updated for a new editor.

Topic


Re: old editor settings

So if I understand it right, it could very well be removed in the core for 2.0?

We'll need to see if a one-time treatment is needed on upgrade of an existing site.
