Review all selectors and pickers

We have various pickers and selection tools in Tiki. Let's review what we have and what we are missing. Please list and explain below current and projected use cases. Ref: How to pick a software library. This is for Tiki28 although it's possible we'll backport a few things to Tiki27 if it's easy and low-risk.

This excludes work on file pickers and date pickers, which are covered by other pages:


These are useful all over Tiki:

1. Multi-select boxes (pillbox)

Select2 is now activated by default in Tiki and the assumption is that we continue to use: https://gitlab.com/tikiwiki/tiki/-/merge_requests/4214

But it's been over 4 years since the last release: https://github.com/select2/select2/issues/6290

So maybe we should change?

2. Ranked voting

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranked_voting

For EvoluData, we ask team members which 3 to 5 departments they prefer to work on, in order of priority. In this case, we want to know so we assign relevant tasks and projects.

For a voting system, we'll want this data to determine the winner(s) of an election. Ex.: https://opensource.org/blog/results-of-2024-elections-of-osi-board-of-directors

Global use case: E-democracy

Candidates:

https://github.com/PhilippeMarcMeyer/vanillaSelectChooser


Favorite candidate: https://philippemarcmeyer.github.io/vanillaSelectChooser/ is quite promising despite its lack of activity, it's very small to be forked if necessary.

The shift and ctrl modifiers don't work for me, and i don't like the way i have to do 2 clicks to select something.

So i vote for https://fabianlindfors.se/multijs/ i reckon (although the vue.js one isn't bad also)

3. Dual list

Like "Ranked voting" but the order is not important. Ex.: Please select the list of all countries you ship to.


On the left is a long list (Ideally a list of continents, and country list is indented), and user picks and move to the right. Here is a similar example from Select2:
Segmenting long lists (examples)

An example with https://github.com/Fabianlindfors/multi.js

4. Nested and sorted lists

5. Resource allocation

A challenge with asking people if they agree with various topics is that you won't have enough ressources to do all the ones that get positive feedback. Another approach is that each participant has a fixed quantity (votes, money, time, etc.) and you allocate to a number of different priorities.

6. Sort options

Here is a list of tasks. All must be done. The only question is the order.

7. Drawing links between 2 lists

Designed for matching files headers to database fields during the process importing

Already used in Tiki for Mail-in to Trackers

8. Color picker

https://github.com/itsjavi/bootstrap-colorpicker needs to be replaced


Color pickers are used in at least 4 places:

9. Slider

Types of sliders

  • basic (pick a value from x to y)
  • range (pick a minimum and maximum)

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.
