"Custom views and space templates" for Alfresco Share

This extension allows you to add custom views and/or space templates mechanisms in the document library of sites and/or in the Repository View.
Note: on latest Alfresco versions (4.2.d and more) space templates is now a native feature

Building the module

Check out the project if you have not already done so

    git clone git://github.com/atolcd/alfresco-spacetpl-customviews.git

An Ant build script is provided to build AMP files OR JAR files containing the custom files.
Before building, ensure you have edited the build.properties file to set the path to your Alfresco SDK.

To build AMP files, run the following command from the base project directory:

    ant dist-amp

If you want to build JAR files, run the following command:

    ant dist-jar

Installing the module

This extension is a standard Alfresco Module, so experienced users can skip these steps and proceed as usual.

1st method: Installing AMPs (recommended)

  1. Stop Alfresco

  2. Use the Alfresco Module Management Tool to install the modules in your Alfresco and Share WAR files:

     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install space-templates-custom-views-alfresco-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco.war -force
     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install space-templates-custom-views-share-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share.war -force
    
  3. Delete the $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco/ and $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share/ folders.
    Caution: please ensure you do not have unsaved custom files in the webapp folders before deleting.

  4. Start Alfresco

2nd method: Installing JARs

  1. Stop Alfresco
  2. Copy JAR files
    • Copy space-templates-custom-views-X.X.X.jar into the /tomcat/shared/lib/ folder of your Alfresco.
    • Copy space-templates-custom-views-X.X.X.jar into the /tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib/ folder of your Alfresco.
  3. Start Alfresco

Using the module

Go to the document library of a site or in the repository (from Share):

  • The "create folder" button into the toolbar has changed (drop down menu)
  • A new button "custom view" is available in the toolbar (right side)

Default configuration

    <alfresco-config>
       <!-- Space templates configuration options -->
       <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="SpaceTemplates">
         <!--
              The 'space-templates' config element value can be one of:
              both        - space templates are availabled in the repository and in sites
              repository  - space templates are only availabled in the repository
              sites       - space templates are only availabled in sites
              none        - space templates are not availabled
         -->
         <display-mode>
            <value>none</value>
         </display-mode>
       </config>

       <!-- Custom views configuration options -->
       <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="CustomViews">
         <!--
              The 'custom-views' config element value can be one of:
              both        - custom views are availabled in the repository and in sites
              repository  - custom views are only availabled in the repository
              sites       - custom views are only availabled in sites
              none        - custom views are not availabled
         -->
         <display-mode>
            <value>both</value>
         </display-mode>

         <!-- CSS attributes -->
         <style>
            <attribute id="max-height">20em</attribute>
            <attribute id="overflow-y">auto</attribute>
         </style>
       </config>
    </alfresco-config>

How override default configuration?

You have to create a XML file called space.templates.custom.views-config-custom.xml into /shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension/ folder.
Example:

    <alfresco-config>  
       <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="SpaceTemplates" replace="true">  
         <!-- Space templates configuration option -->  
         <!--  
              The 'space-templates' config element value can be one of:  
              both        - space templates are availabled in the repository and in sites  
              repository  - space templates are only availabled in the repository  
              sites       - space templates are only availabled in sites  
              none        - space templates are not availabled  
         -->  
         <display-mode>  
            <value>none</value>  
         </display-mode>  
       </config>  
       <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="CustomViews" replace="true">  
           <!-- Custom views configuration option -->  
           <!--  
                The 'custom-views' config element value can be one of:  
                both        - custom views are availabled in the repository and in sites  
                repository  - custom views are only availabled in the repository  
                sites       - custom views are only availabled in sites  
                none        - custom views are not availabled  
           -->  
           <display-mode>  
              <value>repository</value>  
           </display-mode>  

           <style>  
              <attribute id="max-height">20em</attribute>  
              <attribute id="overflow-y">auto</attribute>  
              <attribute id="color">#333333</attribute>  
           </style>  
       </config>  
    </alfresco-config>
