Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

Hey Yura!

Would it be possible to have an file upload field on the edit page, too? Something like “replace plugin code with…”. It would save some clicks if you often upload new code.

Nils, the main php file upload should be able to update the code. Anyway, what makes you upload the code often and not just test it in plugin_cache_dir? In other words, if you test your plugin in plugin_cache_dir then you will most likely not bother to open edit page, and if you use edit page then it sounds rather odd that you want to upload the code. Just want to know the user logic.

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

Hi Yura!

At my university I’m not able to acces the site I’m working on via ftp on all computers.
That’s why I’m happy about the upload function. I create a new plugin, download it via your plugin, edit it on my desktop (with syntax highlighting) and finally re-upload it back. So, sometimes, I have to upload the same plugin a few times after another because I have to fix some errors. That’s my user logic…

Nils :)

Nils :) i can recommend you Editus Externus Firefox Extension for such a case. Hope that’s firefox at your uni :)

… ehh, so, but why would it be more convenient to have upload form at the edit page? Looks like if you’re just uploading the code from computer and don’t edit it online it shouldn’t matter where the upload form is.

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

I will look at the extension, but mostly we have Safari on our Macs (we are a university of arts ;)

Concerning the upload form. When I upload a plugin I will be redirected to the plugin’s edit page. Normally I test the functionality in another tab, make my changes on my desktop and then upload the new code. For this last step I have to go back to the frontpage of the composer and scroll down to find the upload form. So as I said above “it would save some clicks” if there was an upload form on the edit page, too.

So, it’s nothing special but a small wish.

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

Will there be an update of the plugin concerning the changed plugin handling?
Hopefully yes :)
