Bits and Pieces

2008-07-06 - 06:07:11 by VickiBrown in General
Working with TWiki doesn't need to be big and showy to learn something from it. I did lots of TWiki work last week.

1. I redid our Breadcrumbs in our home TWiki. The default for a subweb is something like

     CFCL TWiki >> Projects/Arti >> WebHome
now (using BreadCrumbsPlugin) we have
     CFCL TWiki >> Projects >> Arti > WebHome
The > vs >> is an artifact but Rich kinda liked it so I'll keep it.

2. I put our TopicTree code into our Shared topics so it's standardized. I also added a subwebs tree at Rich's request (tripping over a couple of gotchas in FlexWebListPlugin.

3. I improved our home TWiki Blog code, based on magic in the Blog code at twiki.org.

4. I built a Twitter Reader — a TWiki front end for my Twitter feed. (separate weblog entry coming rsn.)

5. I learned about the "Topic Preferences" per-page settings. This is a very cool trick that allows you to set preferences for a topic that don't show in the Edit or Raw window. I'm converting a bunch of projects to use this.

6. Last but certainly not least, I learned how to sort TWiki lists (using JavaScript). (another weblog entry coming rsn...)
