Working on ImpressCMS - micro-blog

Hi,

I'm starting this thread to give you an idea about what I'm currently working on, without needing to fire up another module or another external service to do so. No guarantees about the frequency though.

No guarantees about the content either, except that it will be ImpressCMS-related, but I might ot limit my contributions here to pure development aspects.

Re: Working on ImpressCMS - micro-blog

I've installed the Chromium-based Edge browser on my machine, and it works like a charm. I know people will look at me sideways when I say that I didn't have any problem with the Edge that was included in Windows 10, I'm generally not such a plugin user so their initial lack didn't pose a problem to me. The chromium-based Edge feels faster and more responsive, and it remains very much Edge. The fact that there's a Google-sponsored Chromium engine underneath hasn't changed that much.

I mention this because I tested our site (of course) with Chromium Edge, and noticed that Edge now also suffers from ticket #100 in ImpressCMS 1.3. Time to get that sorted out.

David L asked how he could test out or current state of ImpressCMS 2.0, and it turns out that the documentation for that is severely lacking and/or out-of-date. I've given him a short roadmap on how to get a ImpressCMS 2.0 alpha 7 site up and running on his shared hosting, but it's time I wrote some documentation.

I discovered this morning when I was on the train going to Brussels that my work on the composer integration was more or less useless because I was re-inventing the wheel. Composer has a class 'installer' that takes care of most things for me. 

I'm looking into resurrecting the API documentation for 1.3 and 2.0, and I've looked into Fabien Potencier's SAMI to do so. I know, it's been discontinued, but I still have to find a tool that allows me to do a command-line crawl directly in my Github repository. I have some issues with git telling me that my repository is not clean in the 1.3 branches, so I'll need to do some spring cleaning before that can be published.
