Re: AngularJS for phpbb

Honestly I dont understand why some are still scared (or skeptical) of using Javascript in phpbb. How long is phpbb going to continue supporting really old browsers or the very small percentage of people who dont have Javascript enabled? This holds back productivity and progress big time. The things...

Re: AngularJS for phpbb

valid point callumacrae.. I understand what you mean and I dont think we can change phpbb into Angular completely (atleast for now). But what I was thinking was maybe instead of turning phpbb completely into Angular, we can perhaps have certain sections into angular. Meaning the Ucp section, MCP, po...

Re: AngularJS for phpbb

If they can both coexist then it might be fine for the core to use this in maybe 3.2. Also not to be misunderstood here. When I say Angular and Jquery can coexist, it doesnt mean you can choose either to use Angular or Jquery. What will happen is, Angular will be the one doing all the things but jq...

Re: AngularJS for phpbb

yeah.. thats fair enough.. But if Angular does get included in core, then MOD / Extension authors will still need to learn a bit of Angular even if they want to use Jquery instead of the Angular way for some methods. Reason being, doesnt matter what is done using jquery, its still going to be Angula...

Re: AngularJS for phpbb

Does this work side by side with jQuery or other libraries? Yeah it does. Angular comes with JQLite built in and we can use jquery instead if we want. It is fully extensible and works well with other libraries. Here is a quote from Angular site: AngularJS is a toolset for building the framework mos...

Re: AngularJS for phpbb

brunoais, from your post I can understand that you barely even scratched the surface of Angular and hence you feel it doesnt suit phpbb. Actually, some of the things you have stated about Angular is not right. With the multiple tabs, Angular should have no problem in handling it. Also the urls works...

Re: AngularJS for phpbb

Why is a single page better than a multiple page application like phpBB? I don't get it. There are plenty of reasons. Just google it and you will find out why a lot of sites are going towards a javascript FW for client side than the old school static pages that refreshes completely for each page lo...

Re: Permission Setting to show IP address to Admins only

IP is valuable for administration and moderation. I'd *rather* ban tor/proxies. What I am saying is IP info is valuable for Administrator but not mandatory for Moderators. I dont agree with the argument that moderators needs to know the Ip for moderation work. NOT RIGHT because this doesnt apply fo...
