Kete: 1.4

9 tickets open, 22 tickets total.

Still a moving target and may be superseded.

Proposed ideas for 1.4 can be seen here:

http://kete.net.nz/site/all/topics/related_to/topic/212-enhancement...

Top candidates:

  • Improve audio and video presentation to be more "YouTube like", including adding video thumbnails to results pages, media players on detail pages, and including embed code that may be used from other sites
  • Support for HTTP Streaming of media files to be used by above mentioned media players and embeds
  • Automatic standard sitemap (non-user facing, but used by search bots) generation
  • Thumbnails for documents, specifically PDFs

All of the above are proposed and there is consensus in the community that the work should be done, but no funding has yet been attached to actually implement the changes. Drop us a line if you would like to contribute code or fund the work.

There is also interest in finishing work started on Right-to-left language support. Here's how it is described:

This will be a continuation of the interface translation work in 1.3.

support for presenting right-to-left languages/locales such as Arabic and Hebrew:

  • a set of right-to-left oriented templates with a filenaming convention that indicates their right oriented nature (i.e. views/layouts/application.rt.rb compared to default view/layouts/application.rb)
  • mechanism to indicate in your locale specification whether to use right-to-left oriented templates
  • mechanism to switch to these templates when user (or site) chooses a right-to-left oriented locale
  • the ability to download a new locale from a central repository of locales on Kete.net.nz
  • ability to contribute a locale your site has created to the Kete.net.nz repository
  • ability to update a locale your site has added to to the Kete.net.nz repository

Coding resources (funding or code contributing parties) have not been identified yet.
