The coding period has ended but has the project reached its destination? let's find out
I am back with the next article of GSoC 2016 project. Previously I wrote about the central idea Shareable Draft Content, so much to be coded but not so much time to finish it! The previous article explained the scope of the project, the steps of implementation and the advantages of this enhancement feature. In my second article the progress so far on this project, all the yay-nay moments over the past weeks of the coding is shared!
The unpublished drafts cannot be shared by using the present system. Hence, the user has to share the draft using external entities or services like cloud (Google drive and Dropbox), physical storage or by simple email. To overcome this drawback the proposed solution is to enable draft sharing using Joomla by making use of a sharable link (as seen in Google Drive/Dropbox). Anyone having this link would be able to view the draft. The basic idea is to enable draft sharing in a Joomla work environment and thus overcome the existing drawbacks and enhance the functionalities of the Joomla! CMS
