1.0b5 Version

From 1.0b5 CVS version, here is what should be done in order to finalize the editor :


Improve WYSIWYG/Perl Translator interfacing

Kupu editor sends its currently editing XHTML document content to a server-side Perl script kupu_html2twiki. This one invokes Frederic Luddeni's Perl translator bin/HtmlToTwiki.pl and calls a function which will do some post-translation treatments lib/TWiki/Contrib/KupuEditorAddOn/Html2TWiki.pm:translate (not well named now). These treatments (based on regexps), consist in doing what the translator does not manage, like variables and permissions translation from our own XHTML representation... Some works have to be done here.

TWikiML Edition (keeping it ?)

We have disabled it becauseof a difficulty. In TWikiML->XHTML direction, a server-side Perl script bin/kupu_twiki2html_edit calling TWiki HTML rendering engine, sends the translation of the TWikiML source it has received. The difficulty lies in the necessity to rebuild a DOM tree from this XHTML source (or modify the existing one), before returning to WYSIWYG view pub/_kupu/kuputranslator.js:TwikiToHtmlTranslatorTool:build.


Most of the remaining problems and works deals with editor's TWiki integration (silent save, behaviour when a topic is locked etc.) and translator interfacing. There is less to do with JavaScript tools pub/_kupu/kuputwikitools.js. They are rather reliable, even if it remains some bugs.


XHTML Representations

We use SPAN inline block elements (because this is the representation we wanted). Example :
<span class="VARIABLE">TOC</span>
Variables can contain others variables, so overlapped blocks are possible. We wanted to use XML tags but we had problems with their visual representation in IE.
We use XHTML META information, here is an example :
<meta name="VIEW_PERMISSIONS" content="User1, User2"/>
<meta name="CHANGE_PERMISSIONS" content="User1, User2"/>

And thank you and your team for all the work you put in so far!
