Table of Contents

MWF 1.3


Customizable Home Screen [Rich]

  • Last meeting: Some UI niceties still needed (these were shown at User Group meeting)
  • Last meeting: Feedback from Ike concerning UI email, since Rich didn't make UI a preference
  • Ready for merge?
JS Interactivity [Eric]
  • Last meeting: Trigger-target engine has been implemented
  • Working on writing the drivers for expandable and transitions - some difficulties with CSS 3 animations
Basic Native Container [Zorayr]

Valid phpDoc [Eric]

Lightning Touch [Rich]

  • Any progress on making stuff more configurable and extricating UCSF-specific stuff?
MWF Decorators [Eric]
  • No update
Form Decorator [Ike]
  • Last meeting: Eric provided some feedback and Rich has made further contributions
  • Rich proposes marking this as experimental so we can modify more significantly later on
  • One big change would be objectifying this further than having one monolithic form decorator
  • Rich to consider possibly doing the refactor before 1.3 alpha release
Cache Object [Rich]
  • Pull request for develop to provide a caching interface
  • Doesn't even have a method for saving objects into cache yet, just tracking the directory to use
  • Eric proposes Disk_Cache rather than Cache and Rich agrees
  • Eric asks why it doesn't use standard cache methods - Rich isn't sure we need them yet
  • Rich will add a function to put something into the cache
Warn on Inner HTML Content [Rich]
  • Eric disagrees with preventing inner content from being passed as HTML - this breaks apps that generate inner content except via the decorator
  • Android 2.2/3 screen size [Rich]
    • Feature proposal: instead of returning false, maybe return the unreliable figure
    • No updates on this yet - probably something we can wait on until we hear of a need
  • Padded to be made the default in MWF 1.3 [Eric]
  • Add support for button inside of content [Eric]
  • Fix H entity issue [Eric]
