Widgets, Search Resource

BluePrint for the S3 Framework

This area is to develop & enhance the S3 Framework wich is built on top of T2/Web2Py.

Current framework features are documented here: DeveloperGuidelinesS3Framework

  • User settings
    • person/settings
      • Loaded into session at login
      • Update session if table updated
      • Read from session whenever needed
  • Have a 'Search Resource' button in .comment next to 'Add Resource'
    • brings up a popup which provides options for advaned search (e.g. Person in Org X & Office Y, working on Project Z)
    • integrate into a single 'Search/Add Resource' button?
  • Widgets for module functionality which can be added to frontpage of site/module
    • Dashboard or key 'Add XXX Resource' forms
    • Same ones to embed in remote sites? (just include S3_PUBLIC_URL)
      • Widget functionality includes the 'code to embed in your site' option
  • Login widget on frontpage of site when logged-out

MVC Separation

Whilst Web2Py is fundamentally an MVC framework, it encourages pushing back as much as possible into the Controller, Model or even Module to gain the benefits of re-use of code & massively simplified prototyping.

If we think this could become problematic then we could choose to avoid this:

There is already support in the framework for this:

  • Manual Forms
  • Form Field fragments: e.g. views/form_name.html

Q: Is it worth developing a version of the RESTlike controller which uses Manual Forms instead of Tools/T2?
