Developing for Platform UI Bundle

Developing for Platform UI Bundle

Wednesday 01 April 2015 7:05:56 pm - 3 replies

Hi there. Some days ago i started to think in doing a small bundle that allow us to define urlalias from new platform ui interface. It will mimic what we had in legacy regarding to this point, but actually i have some doubts on how we can plug a bundle inside the platform ui bundle. 

For example, actually, in platform ui, when you go to Admin Dashboard, you can see two links there:

  • System information
  • Section list

If i'm not wrong these links come from this twig template. But how could add  a new item to that list without toucing anything from platform ui itself

one option could be override that block in a new controller, but that could work for only one bundle, right?

Please let me know.

Hi Carlos,

That's a great initiative!

May be we should sync. on that and first exchange on wireframes and UI design?

Do you have already something in mind, or just the idea of replicating the old UI?

Hi Roland. I'm not good in ux so at first i was trying to replicate old functionality understanding this as having Same forms we had before. And trying to applying look & Feel we already have in Platform. 

As a starting point i thought i could take sections as  a base for this.

But said that, if you have some plans and think we can collaborate on it just let me know. Would be very helpfulp to know if we could go for another content tab for this, or if we could add a New link in the right bar while viewing...

Anyway, my main concern actually is how to extend what we Have now as said in my first post.

Technically it is planned to be a menu item next to System information, Section list, ... And it needs to be possible to link to it from Content view. It is planned to be part of Platform UI, if it is a separate bundle or not is optional, but yes this part of the menu will also have to be extendable.
