Work on Sueetie proceeds on the side, yet big things are happening. BIG things, like the addition of Content Parts and List View Controls. Both are shown on the home page and the Public Demo Group home page below.
I'll get into the use and design of Sueetie List View Controls in a follow-up post, but since Content Parts are more photogenic of the two we'll feature them first. Let me begin by declaring that Sueetie Content Parts are the sole work of Joe Shearn of Ambay Software. Ambay is one of the partners lending a hand in the development of the Sueetie framework, and with Content Parts they've made quite an impressive debut.
The Sueetie content parts are JQuery-based, using NicEdit for full HTML editing. Joe also added a robust administrative component which we'll see later.
Let's first look at the updated homepage at http://sueetie.org. #1 is a Content Part, #2 displays two List View Controls displaying most recent blog posts and most recent forum discussion topics.
I wanted to demonstrate Sueetie content parts and list view controls outside of the home page, so you'll find them displayed on the Public Demo Group Home Page as well.
When you mouseover the content part as shown on the group home page, it highlights as a good content part should.
Here's a screenshot of the NicEdit popup content part editor, activated by double-clicking anywhere in the content part area.
Now we're in Administration where each content part is automatically added for editing and permission assignment.
I saved the best for last. I know it's small, but you know what's what on the screen. The Sueetie Content Part permissions management page. Not only can permissions be assigned for individual content parts, but to both users and roles. That's pretty extreme as content parts go.
Joe, you're a rock star!
