Re: rah_post_versions: Revision control for articles, forms and pages

This looks really incredible – but may I ask what is the major difference (apart from the UI) between this and cnk_versioning? Let me preface the question with the comment that I have never used cnk_versioning…

Re: rah_post_versions: Revision control for articles, forms and pages

Hi Jonathan,

let me try to ask your question:

  • the “_versioning” chunk on cnk_versioning name is a bit missleading. cnk_versioning doesn’t do any kind of versioning of pages/forms/css. What it does is to enable the possibility of working with css/forms/pages directly as files on the filesystem. Thus, it enables you to use VCS, like SVN, Mercurial, Git, etc, to keep those files versioned.
    cnk_versioning should have been named something like cnk_put_forms_pages_and_css_as_files_in_a_folder_and_let_me_work_with_a_vcs.
    Of course, also, it doesn’t do any kind of article versioning, which rah_post_versions claims to do.
  • on the other hand, rah_post_versions doesn’t enable the possibility of working with a VCS, as it keeps all the versioned stuff directly on the database. And it also has article versioning built-in, which will make it a must-have tool in any TXP toolbelt.

Let’s wait and see if Gocom agrees with the above answer.

I’ll try to give an spin to rah_post_versions and check how it integrates with cnk_versioning. I mean, I will be probably disabling all rah_post_versions magic regarding forms/pages/css, but keep it enabled for articles.

I agree! How do you manage to always create plugins that, once they are there, we can’t imagine ever having done without, Jukka? ;)

Absolutely, I do agree everthing you said.

I should warn you that it won’t see the changes made by cnk_versioning. Rah_post_versions tracks what is send to the server from the TXP’s web-based UI, thus it can’t track changes made by cnk_versioning, or any other tool, that modifies database directly.

Heh, thanks. Actually, I just try to think things that would be helpful to me and others, and how I could package it with GUI and deliver it in away that almost everyone could use.

Maybe you should ask that from Stef, because he has some weird, yet totally awesome, plugins that I would never have thought about.

Thanks for clarifying, Gogom. Yes, I was expecting that, and not any kind of Finnish magic that will make rah_post_versions keep track of what cnk_versioning is dumping into the database.

Re: rah_post_versions: Revision control for articles, forms and pages

And there was me always saving backup copies of forms, pages, css etc. with dates appended…

this is very, very, very good, Jukka!!!

If it was up to me, I’d promote you to the dev team!

That’s lot of work. Did (or do) you use smd_where_used to ease the massive job of replacing every reference?

Means a lot to me, Martin :-)
