Re: Testers needed: flat development (4.7+ only)

I wouldn’t try to accommodate all possible formats with all possible attributes. Yes, a new tag seems reasonable, feature set to discuss. Not sure svg is more risky than js or xml, but let’s drop it, who will ever want to edit it? Or not?

Two hours of coding they say…

Re: Testers needed: flat development (4.7+ only)

Okay, I have submitted the first part. To test:

  • create (via Styles) a style called test.js with alert('Hello, bloatware!') inside;
  • include <script src="path_to_site/css.php?n=test&e=js"></script> in some article.

Re: Testers needed: flat development (4.7+ only)

Cool! And it’s parsable via the Easter egg ;-)

BTW, the enforced .css extension can be found in Skin/CommonBase.php and Skin/AssetBase.php. Search for extension and you’ll see the paths being constructed by hand in a few places. The default for all asset types is txp but the Skin/Css.php class overrides the static $extension to css so assets of that type get built like that.

What is that?

Actually, that is something one sometimes wants to edit, if only to add id, classes or href details to it. One case I’ve had is a map with linked rollover regions.

If I told you I’d have to kill you.

set a hidden pref called parse_css to 1 and you can use <txp:> tags in your asset content. I know where you live.

Re: Testers needed: flat development (4.7+ only)

Thank you gentlemen, will continue tomorrow. And probably change e for x (sounds more like extension).

Lost my Easter egg today, dropping a wrong db when trying to install 4.5.7 :-(

Love it!

But… The Styles panel needs to be renamed ;)

Me interested too (not immediately for JS/CSS though), but SVG / JSON / …

But… The Styles panel needs to be renamed ;)

Spiffing. My only reservation is that using the tag <txp:css> to output a URL to something non-CSS is a little wonky.

what about <txp:asset type="js" name="myjs" /> and for css <txp:asset type="css" name="mystyle" media="screen" />?

On the upgrade installer all styles which are already in existence could be renamed with a .css extension

Do we ignore the other attributes for non-CSS files?

Also, when using format="link" we assume that the output is going to be a <link> served via css.php? If you specify format="url" you get a raw URL spat back. What if you want your .js to output as a <script> tag? Seems reasonable. What about SVG (assuming you accept the scripting risks)? Should that render <img src="test.svg" /> if you use format="link"?

And what if you want to render the contents verbatim, not as a URL but as the actual content? format="raw" seems useful. Could we accommodate that?

Using the old tag for all this functionality seems fraught with gotchas. Perhaps a new <txp:asset> tag is cleaner to output anything from the Assets — including CSS — as either a URL processed via css.php as you outlined above, or raw output. Either way, people will have to construct their own markup around it. And we then leave <txp:css> to only process CSS (.css) assets.

if svgs are included I agree that it is getting more complicated. As such it’s not a big think to contract our own html tags for the assets.
