Future of WebYep

Postby iturtle » Sat Jul 27, 2013 1:30 pm

hi there,
I was wondering if you have any news about the future of webyep.
I still like to use it and it would be nice to know if it will stay future proof or even be developed further.
since it compares quite well to other rw cms products I keep wondering why you stopped working on it. it's a shame if find.
best wishes- kai.

If you check out obdev.at ... it's "Open Source" now.
So if there isn't a crowd of interested Programmers somewhere ... it's left to die out here.
:cry:

Wich I think is very sad because it's the best small CMS I come to find in all these years and very suitable for 90% of all my Costumers / Projekts.

@Imperfekt thanks for your reply! I also do not really understand why they gave it up. so much potential and still good. does not work with mavericks, though :(

I agree.
When I started working with WY I thought it would be too limited ... but I found out: it's amazing how much you can do with this tiny littel CMS and limited Elements. You just need to be clever. And many of my Costumers are loving the easy-to-understand way of editing their sites ... The only thing I was hoping for was more SEO-Improvement of the pure WY-Elements. That would have been my Wish ...

One Question: why shouldn't WY work with Maverick??? (What has an an Os to do with a Website?)
I read http://forums.obdev.at/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8653 but didn't get it. Plugin for RW?
I code "by Foot" - so no fear here.

At the moment its in the middle of a massive face lift plus new functionality, including the integration of redactor as a richtext editor and file upload

here are a few screen shots of what it will look like

Max - you made my Day!
(Once again!)
AND that reminds me - I have forgotten to download your latest Version of the WebYep Freeway Action Suite ...

If you need Support for the WY-Project (e. G. Beta Testing, Translations ...) give me an short Notice.

I think it's in your behalf if I give the good News to the german speaking Forum?
Greetings from Berlin!

the freeway development looks great. I wished someone would do this for rapidweaver! :)
please have a look at my topic here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8653&p=26342#p26342
I posted a new comment today. I found out that the german/english filenames in the system are causing this error when trying to preview, export or upload the webyep page:

Exception while exporting site
-[__NSCFString appendString:]: nil argument

thanks a lot. I really hope for a solution. best wishes - kai

HI
I to have come across the character problem in the naming of webyep items and it was something that stopped webyep dead in its tracks. The only quick solution was to make sure names of webyep items didn't have the umlaut character.

As for the development of webyep there should be no reason why the Rapidweaver plugin couldn't be adapted to use the updated webyep system that being written for Freeway. Once I have a fully working model I will be uploading it to github for non Freeway users to use if they wish.
All the best max

Hi All the functionality has now been done, which means all the editors are functioning with the updated core system eg redactor integration and upload facility audio upload etc. and now I am creating the css for each of the editors.. as for rapid-weaver then that will have to follow after the new system is tested and workings. Unfortunate its slow going as there is a lot to do, but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel

speak soon max

Max,
that sounds very interesting. What I think would be crucial for a future version of WY is responsiveness. Do you think the elements can be coded in a way that they adapt to responsive frameworks and/or themes being used "around" them? Also, I would love to see no more inline css inside the code elements as these make it difficult to change from outside.
And finally, and most important: is there a way to stay informed about your progress? I would love to try a new version with RapidWeaver. Do you have a mailing list for news on that issue?
Thanks
Markus

Hi Markus
I don't know quite how the rapid weaver plugin works but the php code snippets behind webyep can already be inserted into a responsive layout and you don't need to use inline styles it can all be external. As I mentioned I have no idea how the rapid weaver plugin works so I can't really comment how the html structure is created in that program.
As for progress…. so far all the css has been written for every editor… that was a massive task!!!!
What I am doing at the moment is allowing people the choice via the config-file which JS frame work they would like to use as the backbone for the modal widows e.g. jQuery, Prototype or Mootoools after that completed the I need to tie that up with the appropriate light box type to match the modal js type.

Anyway I am still ploughing on and hope to have some sort of alpha ready for testers some time soon
kind regards max
