Dear, I'm looking in a way to display a Masonry style page in XWiki for blog or application.
The masonry style (often called "grid") is something like this : http://mariustheme.tumblr.com/ // Why ? In termes of ergonomics it show it full potential when images speak better than text. This is why Google images and Pinterest use it. Typical applications for XWiki could be : - Physicial products database : the image help finding the product quicly when not sure of the name. - Designs database : not just an image, a design goes with some description and data so it is usefull to link to a page. - Physicial defects database : in industry, to quicly caracterise a defect that appears visually on a part. - ... My need is for a nice looking collaborative product designs database. This database would be one app in a Wiki that has other uses. // The question : What would be a simple way to make it in XWiki with a minimum coding ? // My current search state and ideas : I already searched the plugin database and couldn't find someting already build. But I could have missed something. Then, I thinked in making an app with App Within Minuts and modifing LiveTable. First step would be to edit the code to display only the first attachement as a bigguer image. It could be a quick fix waiting for the second step, more complex, to display the LiveTable as a masonry view. There is already existing code that could be adapted. However this would be at the limit of my few programming skills and then taking a lot of time. Also I'm not sure if LiveTable can be modified on the context of one application only (not modifiing the others applications). - If yes, would it still be possible to use Apps Within Minutes to modify other parts of the app, not reversing the handmade code modifications ? - If not I gess this mean I need a more complex plugin to add a "massonery view" option to LiveTable and another option to Apps Within Minuts to display it by default ? This is only a XWiki beginner ideas so maybe someone has an idea of a simpler way to do it ?
