These is the code base for an extended Version of Evolution. See the start in the MODX forums:


A project need rules, if there is more than one developer involved.


  • Functions and procedures do only have one exit.
  • Classes, functions and procedures should have a PHPDoc header.
  • Unit tests for PHP with PHPUnit should be done.
  • Function brackets are starting in a new line.
  • IF conditions are always with brackets.
  • Concatenate string with a space on the left and the right side of the concatanator.


  • Table and column names with white spaces are not allowed.
  • Table and column names, that also represent system commands or functions are not allowed
  • Table and colmun names do not need quotes if you respect the previous rules.

Jobs, that should be done

Change the database class

This has do be done, to use other RDBMS than MySQL with MyISAM, for example MySQL with InnoDB and PostrgreSQL. On MySQL with InnoDB and PostgreSQL connection between tables should be done with foreign key constraints.

Make Evo and its core components run on other RDMBS

Make Evo and its core components should run on PostgreSQL and MySQL with Innno DB using transactions and constraints. Other databases as, for example, SQL Server are possible, too.

Make the user management more comfortable

Enable the choice to use separated or non separated front end and back end user as an option.

Changing the JavaScript library to jQuery

jQuery, because of the license, documentation, and its much more much more common.

Decision has to be made, which jQuery add-ons to use

The file manager and the text editor will be changed to one based on jQuery.

Change the caching

Currently the caching does not scale with more then 5,000 documents.

Internationalisation of documents

Implement a workflow for translations

Version control

Version control with workflows for documents, yes, this should include translated documents. For example you work on a document and decide on your which version is published.
