HTML5

What is HTML5 ?
Wikipedia wrote:
"HTML5 is being developed as the next major revision of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the core markup language of the World Wide Web. HTML5 is the proposed next standard for HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0 and DOM Level 2 HTML. It aims to reduce the need for proprietary plug-in-based rich internet application (RIA) technologies such as Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight."

On December 2010, Tiki moved to HTML5 (released as part of Tiki7.)

The plan

  • Tiki7 is HTML5. If you need to stay HTML4, stay with Tiki6 LTS.
  • Tiki8: Improve, expand HTML5 implementation
    • Adjust existing new HTML5 elements.
      • Side columns
        With the switch to HTML5, the side columns were changed from div to aside but this isn't necessarily semantically accurate, depending on what's in the columns. These should probably be changed back to generic divs. (Done r35808.)
    • Modules should be configurable to use either div.box or a new HTML5 element such as article or aside, so this can be set as a module parameter.
    • Add new HTML5 elements where they aren't implemented yet.


ToDo

Demo theme started

I started a demo theme at Zukakakina.com that will use HTML5 elements, etc., as much as possible. Select the htmlgo.css theme to check it out ("go" is a translation of "5" in Japanese). So far, the doctype and language specifications are changed, the header, footer, and nav elements have been added (and given appropriate class or id to stay compatible with stylesheets), and a javascript linked to in order to support IE. The changes for the theme are minimal, and are in theme-specific .tpl files, so far just header.tpl, tiki.tpl and tiki-sitemenu.tpl. Next is to make the element name changes in the middle section of the page.

Later, there would|will be changes needed beyond the theme level such as in Smarty blocks that produce display code, to change or add appropriate elements. (Gary)

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.
