Ninguém gosta de fazer tarefas repetitivas quando há uma solução para elas. Eu fui escolhido para o Google Summer of Code deste ano, para tornar a vida de um administrador de uma página multi-idiomática mais fácil. A ideia é mudar a maneira como o Joomla! lida com vários componentes num ambiente multi-idiomático. Isto pode ser feito numa página só, em vez de nos limitarmos a fazer o ciclo “novo”-”gravar e fechar” para itens associados um ao outro.

Four years ago at a Joomla Day New York I demoed the latest updates to a Joomla extension I had developed with a client. They had commissioned a Wordpress version of the same extension from a WP developer and shared with me the install stats for both (which connected to the client's service). The installs were overwhelming Wordpress. It blew me away and I began to watch statistics for the popularity of the platforms and discovered that WordPress was devouring Joomla's market share. When I built my first Joomla 1.5 site, more sites on the Internet were powered by Joomla than any other CMS. Today, WordPress powers five times as many websites as Joomla does.

Many Joomla! website owners/super-users need to know what other users are changing in their website especially at large scale websites with many users and various access privileges. My proposal for the Joomla! project “Recording actions logs, accessible by super admin” in Google Summer of Code 2016 was the one selected. In this article, I explain how I see the project and what would be the outcome of it.

The unpublished drafts cannot be shared by using the present system.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

No one likes to do repetitive tasks when there is a solution to reduce them. I was selected this year on Google Summer of Code to make the life of multi-lingual platform admins easier. The challenge is to change the way Joomla! deals with several components in a multi-lingual platform. It can be performed in a single page in a side-by-side way, instead of being limited to the “new”-”save and close” loop for items referring to the same thing.

This August I turned 10. That's very young you might say. Sure in human terms of that's pretty young..not even into teens yet. But in software terms..for that's what I am, being 10 is not necessarily that. I am not sure what it is in fact...But I am said to be more or less mature now. But then I have been stable and mature many a times in my life cycle so far...I am a foster child and I have been cared for by hundreds if not thousands of parents and each of them have put a bit of themselves in me. As you might imagine I have grown to have multifaceted personality. For some people I am a simple website building tool, for some a flexible content management system while some see me as a platform to build web applications on. And that's just some of the ways in which people tend to perceive me. Read my complete story!
