Yes, I deleted oui_flat and included it to the rah_flat fork. We probably don’t need two plugins for the same thing and I could change the plugin name if Jukka come back and don’t want to include some of my changes but pending that, it is mainly his code, so let’s keep the rah_ prefix.

I’m not throwing shade on Gocom, but I seriously doubt he’s coming back. You don’t get as invested as he was with a project then vanish overnight with no courtesy word or sign of pulse — leaving many things and people hanging — with the possibility of coming back and picking up where you left off one day. He’s gone.

Point being, I don’t think it’s so wrong to at least call your fork, oui_rah_flat (then it’s clear to those of us who want to migrate over what it is we’re installing and have installed), which still gives Gocom tribute while you’re clearly identified as maintainer of something new-ish.

Odds are greater the code gets put into core than Gocom actually returns and picks up where he left off with Txp.

Out of topic: I wonder sometimes if he died. Or does anyone know anything about him?

He’s not dead, just doesn’t want to communicate with us.

Obviously he had grand plans for Textpattern, then just vanished.

Mark deleted his presence, which is what I would do if I wanted to check out. For me it would be easy, since I don’t Facebook or Twitter, one rm command at my VPS and I’m history. The only remnants of hcgtv would be on online forums, like this one.

But I don’t plan on checking out, I’d rather pass the torch.

No it’s bogus, but I do intend on writing a book on WordPress vs Textpattern one day.

Why one poorly written piece of software garnered so many users, while the elegant solution languished in obscurity. 10 years of notes and saved web pages grace my hard drive, it’s an interesting story.

PHP in templates, give me a break ;)

Re: oui_flat (rah_flat fork) - Manage templates and prefs as flat files

Nicolas,

Is there anything to be aware of if already using the original rah_flat? Or is it just a simple update of the old plugin with oui_rah_flat?

What about the product key? Does that change?

Hi,

If you’re talking about the rah_flat_key which forces the theme upload in a different production status than the one(s) selected for the auto upload, nothing changes.

As written on the release page, here are the major changes:
  • auto templates upload on selected production status (stop pollute the Test runtime if set on Debug only);
  • hides prefs set via flat files (to avoid changes on the admin side);
  • forms stored by types in subfolders (you can also add custom form types);
  • custom form types changed to misc when the plugin is
    disabled/deleted (to avoid errors on the admin side);
  • adds support for custom prefs as variables and for textpacks;
  • avoid templates reload on plugin delete.

I asked GitHub to dissociate my fork and to turn it into a normal repo but I keep rah_flat as the name, for now at least. I also asked Andy to change the repo link for rah_flat to my repo in his awesome-textpattern repo.

Re: oui_flat (rah_flat fork) - Manage templates and prefs as flat files

Yeah, I looked at the ReadMe file. I was just wanting to see a confirmation line like: “If you already use the original (orphaned) rah_flat, just update the plugin with this code, all will be fine.” ;)
