Re: [xwiki-users] Display external directory tree under xwiki

2008-03-12 Thread Gellien, Joerg
Hi folks,

Just another thought on the topic: displaying external directory structures 
with metadata under XWiki.

The major goal I have to achieve is to provide readonly access to a directory 
structure with associated documents for download.

I have read in the xwiki docs on optimization that it is possible to disable 
versioning of documents for performance gain.
- Is it possible to disable versioning for specific spaces?

This would allow me to generate hirachical pages with the appropreate metadata 
(one page - one directory, one space - one project to display) without 
creating to much junk inside of xwiki (only latest information on structure is 
valid).

Does this sound reasonable - or do you think I missed some important extension 
capabilities of xwiki?
Any hint is highly appreciated.

Best regards

Joerg

 Betreff: Re: [xwiki-users] Display directory tree under xwiki
 
 
 Hi Guillaume,
 
 In the ancient days before xwiki we used to checkout a 
 project from version control (Telelogic Synergy) into the 
 file system. To access it from Web we put the base directory 
 under apache htdocs using directory navigation feature 
 provided by apache server.
 
 The major drawback was/is
 - no access control (ok htaccess - not realy maintainable in our case)
 - no possibility to add meta data like version, author e.a. 
 from version control
 - no special filters on file types (e.g. only show office 
 documents for project a (separate directory structure), all 
 documents for project b (separate directory structure)
 
 My first idea is to provide a plugin to access filesystem 
 starting from a root-directory and generate a tree like 
 structure. On top of this I can provide a filter mechanism 
 and adding meta data to the display.
 
 It should look something like this: 
 http://mywiki/xwiki/bin/ProjectA/ContentFromVersionControl 
 (Page content)
 This page contains detailed data from project 
 myspecialProject~jgellien from Synergy repository myrepo:
   
   myspecialProject~jgellien
|-doc
|  |- myDescription.doc (version: 1.0, last changed: jgellien)
|  |- more docs to come (version: 1.1, last changed: jgellien)
|  |-subdir
  |- projectplan.xls (version: 1.1, last modified: 
 jgellien)
 
 
 The documentation is directly maintained inside version 
 control with a predefined directory structure. This structure 
 should be preserved in the presentation layer. Updating the 
 documentation could be done with a chron job.
 
 Perhaps this goes into the direction of WebDav and ViewVC but 
 I am no expert on this field.
 
 Do you have any advise how to proceed?
 Any help is highly appreciated.
 
 Best regards
 
 Joerg

Hi Joao! Sorry for being late with this answer...

 Hi Ricardo.
 First, I would like to say thanks for the reply.

 The reason I didn't reply to the original thread is because I was not
 registered at the time, and so I did not have the post on my inbox to
 reply.

   
OK. I should have supposed something like this. Perhaps Nabble could 
help in this situations. Although you have already found this, it could 
be helpful to follow any other thread of which you have not the starting 
point in your inbox...

http://www.nabble.com/XWiki-f2563.html

I also use this tool when the account I have registered with in the list 
can not be used to send from a given location. I frequently have this 
problem.

I have not a clear idea about how frequently Nabble synchronizes with 
lists contents. But it eventually works!
 As for cookies, yes, my browser does accept them (I'm using firefox
 but there is also this behaviour for IE 6 and 7 browsers).

 When I say I can't enter edit mode I wasn't refering to my wiki :),
 but to Xwiki's wiki.
 I've already seen macro.* (I even edited so that my panels are
 collapsed by default), but can't find anything regarding...

New messages give more information than this entry, thus I am moving 
there to follow the flow!

Cheers,

Ricardo

Re: [xwiki-users] upgrading xwiki 1.2.2

 Hi.

 I have installed an XWiki 1.2.2 through a XWiki Enterprise ZIP, and
 now want to upgrade to 1.3.
 From the documentation, it seems that easy upgrades of the wiki
 require the WAR installation, which I have not done. Do I have to
 export my current wiki into a WAR (if so, how can I do it?), or is it
 done through a different method?


Have you checked out Upgrading an XWiki Installation in the following 
location?

HTH,

I am trying to understand what you are trying to do... Are you including 
this code in a XWiki page?


XWiki look and feel is completely controlled by CSS, JS and Velocity 
macros. Each time is easier to modify some characteristics of the layout 
although it is by no means easy to understand/control the whole thing!


If you want to use CSS to control the appearance of your contents or the 
layout of your wiki, these could be good starting points...

Just my two cents,

Ricardo
