Looks pretty good. There was a desire to be able to upload extensions from within that page and to also directly download from the CDB (I.e. search and select) but I'm not sure that this should have been part of this RFC.

It was decided that should be worked on separately after this is finished and working properly.

As Nils said, upload/delete features in the ACP will wait until after the inital implementation. As will direct integration between it and the CDB.

With regards to integration of the CDB and phpBB extensions it might be something like google play. You can install something to your board from the CDB and browse the cdb from your board. But remain the ability to upload extensions from other sources.

Great work!

Would it make more sense to make this a tab in the ACP, like "Extensions" right after Styles? It took me some digging to finally find it buried away where it is right now.

By the way, when I tried naderman's example extension, I get this error in the extension admin:

Code: Select all

The "example" extension is not valid.
The required file does not exist: ./../ext/example/composer.json
Has an irascible disposition.

There is an RFC for that somewhere.

And yeah, that extension needs updating. I'll do that now.

EDIT: Done

Thanks. But now after I enabled it, I think that extension is broken now that you want it inside a "naderman" folder phpBB/ext/naderman/example. Going to index.php?ext=example now gives the error: The extension example does not exist.

EDIT: Also, FYI the example specifies 3.1.0 for phpBB. So it is considered incompatible with 3.1.0-dev.

At the moment I think you have to use ?ext=naderman/example. We're working on a way to be able to have something else for the ?ext= value, but for now it's the extension name.

When I try that, I get the error: The extension naderman/example is missing a controller class and cannot be accessed through the front-end.
