VueJS In Tiki Part 2

Some more dev notes about the next stages for VueJS integration for discussion at TikiFest Virtual 2021

The Story So Far VueJS logo

In Tiki 21 "we" introduced a minimal inclusion of Vue.js using Single File Components and a pre-compiled version of Vue.js to avoid creating a new dependency on node.js (and associated javascript tools) which Tiki has, historically, not used.

Initially in 21.x Tracker Field Rules was added using ui-predicate. Since then the Duration Tracker Field has been added in 22.x but that's all, I think.

The Next Steps

For the future I think we should bite the bullet (or at least discuss) adding a way to do this within Tiki, possibly by adding a new set of commands to console.php to manage the environment in a consistent way, similar to how we have integrated LESS and now SCSS for CSS compilation.

If we are to extend the use of Vue.js in Tiki (which I believe we should - see also Project Fluffy) having a full development environment will be essential. Also this should help refactor and modernise our sprawling JavaScript codebase.

Some Points for Discussion

  • Upgrade to Vue.js 3.x?
  • Integration with Smarty, or do we add another templating system for this?
  • Replacement of jQuery-UI (Sortable/Draggable, date/time pickers mainly)
  • Replacement of jQuery completely one day?
  • Add more here...

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.
