Cssified Xoops Default Theme

Resized Image

On the road of Xoops 2.5 I decided to redraw the basic old fashioned style default theme of Xoops keeping the same exact visual layout but transforming the theme in a tableless, full css version.

Changes made to the theme structure offer a more compliant and solid version of it.
Here Some of the changes made:
* Removed all tables from theme.html
* Removed style markup from left/right center block
* Fixed the object/image banner code style
* Added a fix for floating objects in center blocks divs
* Applied a slight border to fieldset tag for better block visualization
* Dublin Core Metadata (DCMI) added

The theme can show 1,2,3 columns automatically, same height columns, don't need hacks/conditionals, has a W3c valid code, it's crossbrowser and don't need
It is possible to apply images/colors as background or borders.. to all the columns (you can test this flexibility and some visual improvements by trying the default-css-test version)
The core of Default-css theme is a port of the great Holy Grail 3 column liquid-layout by Matthew James Taylor.

As you may guess the result is nothing particularly original at first sight.. but this work is obviously a proposal for a concrete possible road for Xoops theming/templating which, in my opinion, still stay a step back from other cms..
In the next feature I plan to make a more stylish/accessible version of this tableless structure and work on system templates.. hoping that the Xoops team will consider this way to approach theming in the next to come 2.5 final release..

You can view, test & download the theme HERE
(Testing on Mac/Linux will be particularly useful)

What is CakePHP?

CakePHP is a rapid development framework for PHP that provides an extensible architecture for developing, maintaining, and deploying applications. Using commonly known design patterns like MVC and ORM within the convention over configuration paradigm, CakePHP reduces development costs and helps developers write less code.

What is SimpleTest?

The heart of SimpleTest is a testing framework built around test case classes. These are written as extensions of base test case classes, each extended with methods that actually contain test code.

DOWNLOAD IXTCake 1.0.5

You can download IXTCake 1.0.5 in ZIP-archive or in 7Z-archive.

New Xoops Engine (X3) Goes Public

I am very pleased to present you X3, the new Xoops Engine for the next generation of XOOPS powered web application development.

This new Xoops Engine was long time in coming. During that time, we went through different phases of trials and errors, but I believe that finally we have the best combination of features and technologies to strategically position XOOPS as one of the top Web Application Platform solutions.

The new Xoops Engine has been re-designed from the ground up to take advantages of third-party frameworks like Zend Framework and Smarty 3.

Why did we rewrite XOOPS?
XOOPS is one of the most successful Open Source CMS and portal solutions, constantly placing in top places in various competitions, and receiving various awards. But it is showing signs of aging, that would require major rewrites of the Core.
In order to keep us focused on creating a flexible and extensible development engine for developers and a high performance application platform for end users, the development team has decided to use industry-standard frameworks. By doing so, we can focus our limited resources on aspects that make XOOPS unique and special, while leaving standard functionality to be addressed by off-the-shelf frameworks. This way we can take advantage of latest internet developments already included in those frameworks - it's like getting suddenly a whole new team of some of the best and brightest PHP and RIA programmers joining XOOPS!

After much research, we've selected a couple of frameworks at this stage:
PHP: Zend Framework
Template: Smarty 3,
JavaScript: jQuery

Meanwhile the multi-engine mechanism of the Xoops Engine will ensure the possibility of adopting other excellent frameworks in the future, like Yii Framework, Dojo Toolkit, etc.

Why did we choose Zend Framework for PHP
* The design and coding is professional and state-of-the-art
* Fully Object-oriented and strictly PHP 5
* The documentation is exhaustive, with countless third-party resources available on internet
* The development is very active and sustainable, and its team is backed by PHP development team (Zend)
* Strong support from major corporations (Technology partners include IBM, Google, Microsoft, Adobe Systems, and StrikeIron).
* Use-at-will architecture with loosely coupled components and minimal interdependencies
* Extensible MVC implementation supporting layouts and PHP-based templates by default
* The components are vast and loosely coupled and potentially compatible with other libraries: on-demand pickup
* Proven PHPunit integration for unit tests

What goes forward:
The Xoops Engine architecture is designed to build on features that made XOOPS so popular:
* Modularization
* Themes
* Template

What do we expect to improve in new Xoops Engine:
* Flexible architecture and elegant code and implementation
* Modern MVC architecture: faster development, state-of-the-art technology
* Distributed deployment respecting virtual hosts
* Contributor friendly skeleton: easy to manage third-party modules and plugins
* SEO capable URL routing
* Solid and rich libraries and frameworks
* Ready to implement unit test

Since the new Xoops Engine aims to bring the XOOPS Project into the next generation of web application development with solid and flexible architecture and state-of-the-art frameworks, its mechanism and APIs might be sometimes different from what is utilized in legacy XOOPS. However, we will keep doing our best to guarantee compatibility for legacy modules and themes at development level and deployment.

I will be introducing to you the new features in detail in the upcoming documentation.
At this moment, please refer to Technical.txt for temporary description. You might also want to check Todo.txt to see what is scheduled to come.

Testing:
I understand that every XOOPSer is keen to learn about how the new Xoops Engine looks like and how it works. And some developers can't wait to develop modules for the new Engine.

However since this is the first public release of the new Engine, I would like to stress that this Alpha release is mainly for EXPERIENCED developers and designers only, as there will be bugs, missing features, and frequent updates. Please remember: this is ALHPA release.
For end users - please be a little more patient before the new system is made more end-user friendly by the experienced developers and designers.

Testing Platforms:
The code has been tested only on a couple of limited environments:
- WAMPserver
- CentOS/apache/php/mysql
- Uniform Server

We are aware X3 does not run at the moment on some environments (e.g. EasyPHP). However, the goal of the Alpha release is NOT testing if X3 runs on all possible platforms with all possible browsers, but to test functionality and features. Therefore, please try to test on the above platforms, if yours is not working. Once we freeze features, then we'll move into testing on various platforms and making sure that it works there.

System requirements:
Apache mod_rewrite
PHP 5.3+

Bug Reporting
For Xoops Engine development, we'll use a separate Bug Tracker: SourceForce Trac. Please report any bugs only there.
For relevant discussions, please use Sourceforge Forum before the demo site is set up.

Here is the plan for upcoming months:
1) In November, I will work with a few experienced developers like Trabis and MusS to prepare a couple of basic modules
2) In December, a selected small group of people will work on a basic functioning system, including developers, designers, testers and technical writers.
3) Our goal is to present by end of this year a reasonably stable platform for developers and end users to play around.

Dowload:
The code is hosted on SourceForge SVN and experienced developers might want to download tarball from there.
Downloadable packages will be available once the code is ready for end-users to play with.

Thanks:
On behalf of XOOPS developers I would like to thank our great XOOPS community worldwide for the fantastic support and dedication in the last decade.
Special thanks goes to
- Mamba, for helping create this new Xoops Engine
- and the Xoops Engine preview members, including but not limited to: trabis, nicolas, kris_fr, marco, insraq, ezsky, for preview comments and early stage of module/application development

XOOPS Receives "Best Technology Award" for X3 from NEA OSS Forum

Resized Image Resized Image Resized Image

We are extremely pleased to announce that XOOPS has received the "Best Technology Award" from the North East Asia OSS Forum for the upcoming X3 version of XOOPS, that will be officially released as Alpha version this weekend. The judges were impressed with X3 architecture, its usage of state-of-the-art PHP libraries such as Zend Framework and Smarty 3, and the direction XOOPS is taking toward becoming a "Web Application-oriented development platform"

As DJ mentioned in the August news, the first public Alpha was scheduled to be released in October 2010, and we're very happy that we're on schedule with this release. It will be a first step to learn more about X3 and to explore it.

The Award will be presented on Thursday, Nov. 4th, in Seoul, South Korea, and Michael Beck (aka Mamba) will be there to receive it on behalf of XOOPS.

Since he will be in Korea, he would like to encourage all XOOPS developers to attend the NEA OSS Forum Conference, so he could meet with you in person while in Seoul and discuss future XOOPS development, as well as to celebrate together this achievement. Please contact him via PM if you're coming to Seoul, so he can arrange a meeting with you (probably in the evening or in between the sessions on Nov. 4th).

On Friday, Nov. 5th, Mamba will be for 7 hours at the Narita Airport in Japan, while switching planes to China, so if anybody from the XOOPS Japan community would like to meet with him there, he would be very happy about it.

On Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 6th and 7th, Mamba will be in Beijing, meeting with DJ and the members of the XOOPS China Community.

We are extremely excited about this "Best Technology Award" for the "next generation" of XOOPS version, and about the opportunity to meet with the Asian XOOPS developers.
