XOOPS Assets Management using Assetic

Submitted By mamba May 23, 2014


A web page consists of a base HTML document and any additional files it may include, such as stylesheets, scripts, images and fonts. We will refer to these additional files as assets. 

Assets are a very important part of the user experience. For today's rich, highly interactive web applications, the asset performance may be more significant than the backend application and database performance. 

In XOOPS 2.6.0 we'll use Assetic, originally developed by Kris Wallsmith, to manage all the assets.

Richard Griffithour Core Team leader, has created a presentation to show you how XOOPS 2.6.0 will be managing its assets. You can see the presentation on SlideShare

This is the first presentation from our new "XOOPS 2.6.0 Education Series", where we will share with new features being developed for XOOPS 2.6.0, and show you how to use them.

XOOPS 2.6.0 is currently in development, in pre-Alpha 3 stage. 

There is a lot of new development going into XOOPS 2.6.0, as you can see from these articles:

After adding DoctrinePHPUnitComposer, and several other cool things, Assetic is just another example of how XOOPS is leveraging contributions from the Open Source community!

You can contribute to the XOOPS 2.6.0 development by forking it from GitHuband submitting your code there.
