Bare Tiki

"Bare Tiki" is a project to improve Tiki to make it great for use cases that need next to no features.

One of the 3 Rules is "Make it Optional". However, some of the features can't be turned off. As a community, let's review this, and confirm for which ones we should create a new preference, so they can easily be turned off.

Why?

  • Security: If a vulnerability is discovered, you can only be affected if the feature is activated.
  • More suitable for some use cases: For example, you want to use Tiki as an Identity provider. You don't want content features. You just want user management. As of Tiki20, there are some features which can't be turned off in Tiki.

Who


Major Features

That need a preference so we can turn them off:

  • There should be a pref for comments that turns off all comments, and this panel: tiki-admin.php?page=comments (see how it's done for blogs as an example)
  • Modules could be optional
  • Profiles could be optional
  • i18n
  • Maps
  • Feeds
  • Tiki Connect
  • Stats
  • Packages
  • RTC

Social networks

When the feature is off, it should not render the proprietary og: and twitter: meta tags in the page source like:

<meta content="Baretiki" property="og:site_name">
<meta content="Baretiki" name="twitter:site">

Minor Preferences

(Sub-)Preferences of the main features like Wiki related preferences etc.

  • CodeMirror syntax highlighter: var syntaxHighlighter gets loaded even when not used?
  • jQuery TreeTable JS and CSS loaded on every page even when not used (used only on tiki-objectpermissions.php?)
  • lib/query_tiki/pluginedit.js is loaded on every page even when the pref Allow plugin-specific edits is disabled

User Information Display

For example: https://dev.tiki.org/tiki-user_information.php?userId=1
Should be optional preference too. See related wish list item: https://dev.tiki.org/item5982

System Menu

Menu ID 42

  • External Feeds
  • External Wikis
  • Mail Notifications?
  • Scheduler - when the feature_scheduler is off it should not display the option in the Settings submenu
  • Tiki Importer
  • Tiki Logs
  • Toolbars could be optional
  • Transitions
  • phpinfo

To discuss

Wiki

  • Rename is not optional - could be wiki_page_rename pref

There could be apps where print settings are not needed.

Membership

  • tiki-admingroups.php has settings like
    • Membership expiry Anniversary
    • Number of Days
    • Pro-Rate Membership


These should be active only if the feature is activated.

Perhaps one pref feature_membership?

Questions

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
