File Gallery Revamp

Some notes about a File Gallery revamp started in Tiki20. This will not be as big as Tracker Revamp in Tiki7, but still important.

Migration to elFinder has started.

Flysystem, with adapters for Local, AWS S3, Rackspace, Dropbox, Ftp, Sftp, Zip, WebDAV


 

Revamp around elFinder and SabreDAV


Already somewhere in Tiki


Later

  • pixastic photo editing (crop, rotate, resize, etc.)
  • Preview text of a binary file (when Tiki can index)
  • Convert to a native Tiki format


Transition strategy

Option 1 - Revolution and migration

Soft, optional transition until 12LTS, and then all out for 13

  • Build it on the side and then, offer a migration path from
    • File Gallery
    • Image Gallery
    • Wiki Attachments
    • Tracker Attachments
    • User Files


How to respect the URLs?

Option 2 - Evolve and cleanup

A bit like trackers, replace File Galleries by new code, and then, improve from better base

Abstract File Storage

Where file are stored should be abstracted so that we can plug and play with any potential Tiki User even if they already have a file storage system

Tiki should be able to interact with files from anywhere

  • Files stored on same server as Tiki
  • Files stored on separate server managed by user
  • Shared Network Drive (SAMBA)
  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • ClearOS Flexshare
  • OwnCloud (http://owncloud.org/)
  • Amazon Cloud Storage (http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000796931)
  • Google Drive (drive.google.com)
  • Dropbox, Box.net etc... etc...

Smart Data Services

The idea behind Smart Data Services is to make sure that once we plug into any storage system, that our File Gallery features continue to be operational.

This means that regardless of where files are stored, Tiki features that we have or that we want to create should not depend on the location of the files

  • Ability to index the data
  • Ability to use the indexed data to:
    • Display in a List
    • Search
    • NLP (https://tiki.org/TikiFest+NLP+12)
    • Tracker File Field (https://doc.tiki.org/Files+Tracker+Field?structure=Documentation+TOC)
  • File Versioning
  • File Locking
  • File Permissions

Association between many files

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.
