Admin complete reorganisation

Hi list,

This morning I’ve posted a patch that completely reorganises the
admin section.

The current admin organisation is based on the scaffold, while mine
is based on the way people actually use a publication engine.

I’ve set up a demo at http://typodev.fredericdevillamil.com/admin so
you can have a look and give me your feedback

Cheers

Frederic de Villamil

Nice work. I’m using Typo 4.0.3 and the most annoying thing for me in
the Admin interface is how the preview pane makes the view of the
browser jump around when the preview it updated. I don’t know if this
change fixes that or if a previous change fixes it, but its not
annoying any longer.

I have some free time coming up I’ll have get synced up with the edge
and start to contribute.

Mmm… nice reorg. It does make the workings of some of the panes feel
a little clunky in some ways (there has to be a better way than drag
and drop for managing the sidebar!), and I’m not entirely convinced by
the placing of some of the panes (surely textfilters belong somewhere
under the look and feel pane, for instance), but the basic
organization does seem to make a good deal more sense than what’s
there already. If I don’t get beaten to the punch I’ll most likely be
applying this patch in the near future.

How about two regular old HTML lists with “Add” and “Remove” buttons
between
the two?
The left list is all possible sidebar pieces, the right list is all
chosen
sidebar pieces.
Next to the right-hand list are up and down arrow buttons (one above the
other) for moving the chosen pieces up or down the list.
Between the two is a button Config that then makes visible the familiar
little config pane for that particular sidebar component further to the
side.

(ALL) (Chosen) (Config Pane)
----- ----- Up -----

    • Add - - Config - -
    • Remove - - Down - -

Personally I like the current typo interface for managing the sidebar. I
guess its the whole ajax novelty but I prefer it to the regular old HTML
Lists. Perhaps there could be an option to choose which one you want to
use
in user preferences.

I like the current AJAX stuff, it’s the fanciest thing on Typo. But
I’m also concerned with accessibility, and full AJAX stuff is NOT
what I calll accessible.

I’m thinking about a replacement a la wordpress for people who
haven’t javascript enabled : good old HTML list to display and
control enabled / disabled plugins, with a configuration page ffor
every plugin. I’m going to try something in the next few weeks /
months, depends on how much time the admin rebuild takes me.

In Europe it’s a legal requirement, and not just for Government
Work. I’m not quite sure how it works for free software, but not
having accessible admin has the potential to hamper anyone who wants
to run a commercial service involving Typo.

With my idea, AJAXy goodness can still be built in to handle the
transfer of
the listed panes from one column to another without page reloads. Or if
we
need something less-HTML looking, I’m sure something similiarly simple
yet
colorful can be put together. My main issue with the current sidebar
setup
is that when moving a component up and down the list, I can only do so
past
one or two other existing modules. This makes handling modules more
like:
slide, page down, slide, page down, slide, page down… So long as that
is
fixed, I don’t care what the solution is. =) Maybe my sidebar is just
too
full.

I see I haven’t run into that yet since I just started using typo and my
side bar is still short. I can see how that would be an issue.
