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

Hello Inspired,

just released the first version of plugin help viewer to compliment your plugin composer.

Many thanks for your help developing it. :O)

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 :)

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

Hello Yura,

any news on Skubidu’s question above and the integration with the help viewer?

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

Well it’s been over a year since Inspired posted here and I wanted to tinker with the plugin. Hopefully Yura won’t mind that I’ve hacked his work of art :-)

I’ve taken the plugin to v0.5 (zipped version) with the following features:

  • Full support for the standard zem_tpl plugin template and the CSS part of net-carver’s extended template (template interoperability – yay!)
  • Support for compressed plugins
  • Textile support in the help section
  • New “Style” box for adding CSS to your help
  • Client-side, Admin-side and Library plugin types now supported
  • When using the plugin_cache_dir you can now take advantage of net-carver’s aweseome Plugin Help Viewer
  • Plugin Composer help using some guidelines from the Standard Plugin Help page

Sorry, but I’m not quite sure of the ramifications of Skubidu’s post above. I may have addressed it, I may not have. Any pointers greatly appreciated!

It’s been an uphill struggle the past 2 days since Yura’s miles ahead of me at PHP, but it’s been a brilliant learning experience wading through nearly 600 lines of someone else’s code.

Hope it’s useful, have fun and let me know if you spot anything I’ve broken (specifically magic_quotes stuff and blank lines, I guess).

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

ooh! i’ve been using ied_plugin_composer almost exclusively instead of using zems template because it just seemed faster to work with. i’m definitely going to give this a shot!

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

Woo hoo! That sounds like a great update Stef. I also use this exclusively. I find it so much easier then the “official” way.

I really wish we had an official way to make these community plugins or something so that there wasn’t weirdness when others took over development.

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

So I would use this exclusively if I could get php highlighting, but great work! I’m going to try to add EditArea to this so I can get my highlighting.

Can anyone else recommend a solution to have the textarea highlight php code?

Re: ied_plugin_composer - new plugins never came that easy

ok quick update – I just setup EditArea with this plugin and it just rocks! It comes with a full screen option that makes programming a plugin with this just completely amazing. Here’s the plugin with my code changes (I just added about 10 lines):

Download 0.5a

You will need to upload edit_area to your textpattern/ folder. You can get it from here
