[2016-09-15] React Rewrite - Current Status Meeting

Hangout Meeting by @christopher and @sebastian


  • so far worked on CKEditor integration and basic Reference Editor
  • next TODO: CRUD of Nodes (“Insert Node Panel”)
    • including constraints
    • later, move/copy
    • later: ReloadIfChanged


  • finalized dimension switcher (not yet with dimension creation)
  • Next: We discussed the way we transfer Nodes from the backend to the React frontend; and decided that we need to do it more “in-band” than we currently do; to play well with caching of Neos.
    • Christopher will change this; so that every cache entry knows its metadata
    • at the end of every cache entry, we write metadata-script-tag with all nodes included in the script tag.
    • we discussed how the Frontend can detect lost updates

General topics

  • @inkdpixels: Any news regarding testing with Ava? Would be great to have some basic test infrastructure running, so we can start writing Reducer etc tests.

  • Inspector still needs to be improved

  • We need to do some detailed performance tracing, sometimes UI still feels sluggish

Had no time to work on neos sadly, mainly due to the hospital visit and client work on which I need to catch up to now. I hope everything will be sorted out next weekend though.

Hard to get time time to work on ui. Also sorry for the late reply.
