Feedback on RestPlugin

-- SvenDowideit - 28 Nov 2007

Thanks Sven for sharing yet another plugin with the community!

Small feedback:

  • On the Universal Wiki Edit Button, may I suggest to use the outline version for sectional editing. This is less distracing the flow of text. (Also, possibly delete UniversalWikiEditButton row from the plugin info table.)
  • Escape unwanted WikiWord links

The zip file is missing so I set the classification back to IncompletePackage.

-- PeterThoeny - 19 Mar 2008

oh, is that why - I didn't even notice that omission.

I so want to get this plugin working but I've hit a dead-end.

First things first, there is an undocumented CPAN dependency on JSON.

OK, the plugin is now enabled and the form field looks as it should but nothing happens. And Firebug is telling me that "dojo" is not defined on the lines for dojo.require dijit.InlineEditBox and dojo.require dojo.parser and then there is a third error saying that the dijit.InlineEditBox class could not be loaded. Looking at the html source I see that the dojo.require lines appear in the header before the dojo.js script declaration and no matter how I change the order of the requireJS and addToHEAD lines in the initPlugin of RestPlugin.pm I can't get this order in the header to change. Am I barking up the wrong tree here?

Sorry, this should be in the Bugs database. It's more than late, I'll do that when I'm back online tomorrow.

David, yes, you're right, I had it all set up on a bodged TWiki - the ordering is tricked out by adding sort to the addToHead function in TWiki.pm. I have also not yet tested it with the updated DojoToolKit :/

TWiki has now a REST plugin that is maintained: ConnectByRestPlugin - thanks MichaelGulitz!
