Development / Anyone do any Wordpress plugin development?
« on: March 28, 2014, 04:25:30 pm »
Just curious if anyone here does any Wordpress theme or plugin development. I do a bit of custom plugin work when I need to for clients and I've just decided to start pushing a couple of them to Github for the rest of the world to see/use should they care to. If anyone is interested:

https://github.com/kendalltristan/custom-contact-fields -- Custom Contact Fields does exactly what it sounds like: it adds custom contact fields to user profiles and optionally requires them during registration.

https://github.com/kendalltristan/restrict-backend-content -- Restrict Backend Content restricts less privileged users to only be able to see their own content and uploads in the admin dashboard (why this option doesn't exist by default will eternally baffle me).

Where can I find the list of URLs that come stock with Ice on peppermint 4?

You can download the peppermint-default-settings source package from the repo.

Of course I won't infringe on any licenses or trademarks of peppermint OS. If I make ICE available in the AUR (which is like PPA's for arch linux), may I keep the name of it as "ice" or should I change it to somethign else. Obviously if I create my own version down the road it will have a different name. And the version in the AUR will be noted as not having anything to do with the official peppermint os.

Ice is the official name of the open source software so you're more than welcome to keep the name.

Drupal sounds nice, but it's a little more complex than what I have in mind. If I go through with this I'm going to use an appache server with mod_autoindex similar to debian mirros: http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current-live/amd64/iso-hybrid/

It will literally just copy the pathways of a filesystem and put it into html. Then I'll have something like the ubuntu software center forked so that rather than using a package manager it reads the appache server and download text files which contain everything needed. The software center already had everything I need for ranking and everything coded in.

Sounds like a fun project. Let us know if you build/launch it.

Also, I'm moving this topic to the general discussion board as it's not really a support inquiry.

I'm looking to actually port it to arch so users will just be able to install it with yaourt. Should be fine since as far as I know it's GPL 2.

Indeed it is. Good luck with it.

No you didn't miss it.  I didn't mention it.   :)  Updating grub was the first thing I did after removing the .tga file.

Okay cool. Just trying to make sure this wasn't a factor.

Openbox is typically the default window manager in LXDE. It's also nice that Openbox functions well by itself if the user knows how to configure it. In Peppermint Four, we're still using LXDE, however we opted to swap Openbox for Xfwm as it has many features that make more sense within a desktop environment whereas Openbox has many features that make it good by itself. For instance, Xfwm supports compositing and rounded window corners, neither of which are natively available in Openbox. On the other hand, Openbox has its own menu system whereas Xfwm doesn't.

Either way, within the context of the LXDE environment, you're probably not going to see the full benefits of Openbox whereas it's an environment that really lets Xfwm shine. If, however, you want to use a window manager by itself, Openbox is fantastic and Xfwm simply won't do.

Openbox is in the software manager so feel free to install it and mess with it all you want. You can even replace Xfwm with it in LXDE if you want to.

Maybe I missed it in my read through, but did you update GRUB again after removing the image?

A ratings and reviews site for sites and how well they function in SSBs sounds like an interesting idea, however there really wouldn't be any need to move any significant amount of data around as links are quite easily copied.

@eles: All of the functionality for this sort of site should be available in Drupal 7 with just a few additional modules ("views" being the obvious one). If you want to build something like this, by all means go ahead, just make sure that you note that it's not officially associated with Peppermint.

To get Ice properly working in Arch, there are just a couple of quick things that need to be addressed:

1. The flags for Chromium are in fact the same, but the command to launch Chromium isn't. This is easily fixed with:

Code: [Select]
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/chromium /usr/bin/chromium-browser

2. From there, copy all of the Ice files into their places in the filesystem.

3. Make sure python2, pygtk, and python2-gobject2 are installed as Ice is written in Python 2, not 3:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S python2 pygtk python2-gobject2

4. Change the first line in /usr/bin/ice to reflect Python2

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /usr/bin/ice
Code: [Select]
#!/usr/bin/env python2

From there you should be good to run it and the SSB functionality should be working just fine. The icons may not download properly, but this should be a minor inconvenience. You can either manually edit the .desktop files or manually create and give proper write permissions to the temp directory for the icons. Either way.

...one thing I would like to see implemented if possible is a "Go Up" button at the bottom of each page it saves wear on my mouse scroller :)

This is a fine idea. If I have time tomorrow, I'll look into it.

Looks like someone beat me to it. Apologies for not getting on that a bit more quickly.

Sure. Post it here and let me know exactly what dimensions you want.

Also, for new questions, please start a new topic so it doesn't get super confusing.  ;)

As it's under "Development", I'm pretty sure Kendall originally meant "What development projects (if any) are people currently working on"

Yes. As in, what code has everyone (anyone?) been writing, what is the function of said code, and how do you intend to implement it.  ;)

I haven't hacked around with it in a while, but it's a bunch of Python wrapped around the Debian Installer. The whole thing is inordinately large for an installer, but as long as it works I suppose. It would be very interesting to try and rip everything out but the live system installer and then modify it to run on Debian or something else. I suppose anything is possible. Maybe if I get drunk and masochistic I'll give it a whirl at some point in the future.
