Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-2015) Add a description element to theme descriptor file (theme.xml)
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2014 10:43:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ROL-2015?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14045803#comment-14045803

Glen Mazza commented on ROL-2015:
---------------------------------

Spacing is OK, it looks very good.  I prefer going without default descriptions as some themes
are just (hopefully) pretty and don't need explanation, it's gets tiring on the eyes to scan
unnecessary boilerplate.  I think we're done here, thanks.

I'm unsure why using Ajax would be "cheating" (because it's easy?), but post-5.1, I'd like
us to reduce the number of <servlet/>s we have defined in our web.xml, we're using 23
right now.  If there is a way to use Ajax while consolidating the number of servlets needed
to support it that would good, if not, to see if there are non-Ajax ways of accomplishing
the same thing for certain tasks, reducing the servlet count that way.  Too many servlets
for a web app might be code smell and a source of additional security holes.

> The theme.xml packaged with each theme already has a <preview-image/> element allowing
the user to see what the theme looks like.  Add a text description field as well, allowing
for an explanation of the theme, which will appear on the theme selection page.  This will
allow for explanations that a theme is intended for front-page aggregation, includes a planet
page, features a wide text column helpful for blogging code or narrow columns for blogging
prose, mentions the technologies (jQuery, bootstrap, etc.) that the theme uses, etc.
