Added support for images from the web in taxon/characters. #18
Pull request for #17.
In the Excel file media sheet, you can now specify any HTTP/HTTPS URL in the URI column if you specify "image-web" in the Type column. This works for both taxon images and character images.
Great - thanks Jean-François - I've merged the pull request. I will document this before the next release (for knowledge-base developers).
Much of what you say about the minified files tests my limited experience of this kind of development. As far as the uncommitted minified files are concerned, I think that this was because the files in question were not being dynamically updated as I thought that they were. I am using VS2017 (community) and the 'Bundler & Minifier' extension. This worked like a charm in VS2015, dynamically updating the minified file whenever I saved a change to the source file, but it seems I'm having a few issues in VS2017.
Is the workflow you describe an alternative to using the VS2017 bundler extension?
Thank you for the merge.
Yes, the workflow I describe is agnostic to the code editor each collaborator is using. I am using Visual Studio Code for web development like this. It is much lighter than the full Visual Studio.
I have implemented minification using a gulp script in one of my branch. See this commit for an example of the changes needed: jflheureux@0799383
In general, you never commit the minified files as they are the result of a transformation (build). The only place minified files should be is in the releases. You only commit the source files.
In my case, I minify in the
New contributors of my branch have to install the npm packages to start working. This command line is all they need:
It will install gulp and its extensions in the local
Then, when a contributor wants to minify the source code of the project, he has one command line to run:
