Re: Asset management

I guess the only real difference to your proposal is that it would not be required to commit the compiled code to the repo. If I understand correctly, the only drawback of that would be that the repo code is slower if you don't run gulp or whatever yourself, and IMO that is pretty irrelevant if you ...

Re: Asset management

Possible idea for a solution that would address all issues here: My assumptions (I don't know gulp, I don't know if everything here is actually implementable): All CSS would go into a single CSS file xy.min.css All JS would go into a single JS file yz.min.js How the solution would look like: Have si...

Re: Asset management

I guess it would be on deployment, as minified versions are hard to review. Source maps ! They're supported by every JavaScript minifier ever, and none of the PHP ones. I meant the GitHub repo, but luckily I don't have to review anything, therefore I don't really care. As I said, I think adding som...

Re: Asset management

@brunoais: Yes, I've got that. However, I think you're assuming that if the user would modify something, he/she would care to use the ACP to minify assets, meanwhile he/she is unable to modify the asset path to the non-minified version, that's just sounds unrealistic to me. So I still think, that ad...

Re: Asset management

I guess it would be on deployment, as minified versions are hard to review. What I mean by inclusion code btw, is <link src="" /> <script src=""> which should be easy to find. Also you could possibly add you modifications to a separate file, and add that. I think implementing any minifier support in...

Re: Asset management

Do you still think we should require more tools than a text editor to modify and have phpBB working and that modifying non-code markup should require php coding skills to redirect the links from the minimized versions? If I understand correctly, you're saying that the phpBB core should have the too...

Re: Asset management

IMO, it's best to not have that minor extra optimization and allow phpBB to be more direct to edit and manually test than having to deal with a console script working all the time to provide a server service for the ever-changing files while working on the interface and reloading the page. I could ...

Re: Tracker

As far as I know the website team is aware of the issue, I don't know when they will fix it. Until then the only solution is to contact a manager to reset your login attempts manually.
