** UNINSTALLED **
Too confusing and not enough instruction on how to use it or configure it.

As I said previously, very good hack, another idea is to allow organized plugin / phrase modification from the file system. Maybe we can cooperate in developing this into a multi-purpose system?

this modification is not for the average joe, its for developers and people who know what it does without having to have had it explained.

Sorry, I missed this reply.

I have another version in development which has another level of abstraction to handle different 'items' (templates, phrases, etc.)

You can take that over if you'd like - I have it in my SVN repos. somewhere. I usually develop things just enough to suit my needs and then I'm swamped with work and don't progress it until months later.

See my repeated requests in the Private Coders Forum for a Private Coders Mods section. ;)

Well, I'm fairly savvy when it comes to these types of things and I find it absolutely confusing. I've followed what little directions there are... and I can't get it to generate the files. I never get errors, but it doesn't work either.

I'd be more than happy to join in on some joint dev work. I know Adrian is tired of me bugging him to add more features ...

How does one go about exporting vbulletin's templates to the filesystem with the CVS version? As it seems to be missing since the name change.

Also, does one set up a watch folder before starting to create a new product? Or after? Or do I have to do some process to output the templates to the filesystem?

Neo_obs 20 May 2008 11:03

Ummm... where does the folder need to be? in your forum root or includes?

does it import automagically?

I'm not the "average joe" thank you very much. I am a developer, I just don't develop vbulletin addons, etc 24/7. If this is supposed to be some sort of tool for the elite they way make it available to the public? Besides the so-called developers you speak of had to learn about how to use it at some point, right? How about sharing the love and share some info with some part time vbulletin developers?

Please? :D

for the elite? You watch the elections too much LOL

The mod was pretty easy to use i thought, and i am the average joe coder.

In the SVN sources, i had to add a vbb plugin to the product so that you could export templates to the proper directory. I think i might have spent maybe 30 minutes looking through the source to figure out what and how to do anything i needed.

I do agree though that there is a pretty big importance on documentation, but it's also obvious that the original author posted more of a proof of concept product rather than a complete tool that can be used with little understanding as to why it works. I have thought of taking the SVN code and building upon it to complete his work, but my skill in object languages isnt up to the task at this time.

Guest190829 25 May 2008 03:56

A tool that does this for plugins would be a god send. *drools* just thinking about it, and phrases too! Not having to deal with the phrase manager one at a time...*drools more*

I've been trying to find resources to teach myself php's object programming ways so i can figure out what the original author has done and apply a similar method to the plugin system but i end up playing world of warcraft or watching Chef Gordon Ramsay on hulu.com or something :|

Although, who ever creates a working system to edit plugins via text file v.s. the plugin editor will hold the mod of the month spot for quite some time :)

What I do for plugins during development is simply require a file with my actual code in it, like ...


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This has two advantages ...

1) I can use my regular PHP editor on the code itself.

2) I can use xdebug (i.e. step through the code, enable breakpoints, etc), which you can't do with directly eval'ed code.

Once the code is ready for release, I just paste it into the plugin and get rid of the require.
