Migrating from WSC 5.2 - Templates and Languages#

{jslang}#

Starting with WoltLab Suite 5.3 the {jslang} template plugin is available. {jslang} works like {lang}, with the difference that the result is automatically encoded for use within a single quoted JavaScript string.

Before:

<script>
require(['Language', /* … */], function(Language, /* … */) {
    Language.addObject({
        'app.foo.bar': '{lang}app.foo.bar{/lang}',
    });

    // 
});
</script>

After:

<script>
require(['Language', /* … */], function(Language, /* … */) {
    Language.addObject({
        'app.foo.bar': '{jslang}app.foo.bar{/jslang}',
    });

    // 
});
</script>

Template Plugins#

The {anchor}, {plural}, and {user} template plugins have been added.

Notification Language Items#

In addition to using the new template plugins mentioned above, language items for notifications have been further simplified.

As the whole notification is clickable now, all a elements have been replaced with strong elements in notification messages.

The template code to output reactions has been simplified by introducing helper methods:

{* old *}
{implode from=$reactions key=reactionID item=count}{@$__wcf->getReactionHandler()->getReactionTypeByID($reactionID)->renderIcon()}×{#$count}{/implode}
{* new *}
{@$__wcf->getReactionHandler()->renderInlineList($reactions)}

{* old *}
<span title="{$like->getReactionType()->getTitle()}" class="jsTooltip">{@$like->getReactionType()->renderIcon()}</span>
{* new *}
{@$like->render()}

Similarly, showing labels is now also easier due to the new render method:

{* old *}
<span class="label badge{if $label->getClassNames()} {$label->getClassNames()}{/if}">{$label->getTitle()}</span>
{* new *}
{@$label->render()}

The commonly used template code

{if $count < 4}{@$authors[0]->getAnchorTag()}{if $count != 1}{if $count == 2 && !$guestTimesTriggered} and {else}, {/if}{@$authors[1]->getAnchorTag()}{if $count == 3}{if !$guestTimesTriggered} and {else}, {/if} {@$authors[2]->getAnchorTag()}{/if}{/if}{if $guestTimesTriggered} and {if $guestTimesTriggered == 1}a guest{else}guests{/if}{/if}{else}{@$authors[0]->getAnchorTag()}{if $guestTimesTriggered},{else} and{/if} {#$others} other users {if $guestTimesTriggered}and {if $guestTimesTriggered == 1}a guest{else}guests{/if}{/if}{/if}

in stacked notification messages can be replaced with a new language item:

{@'wcf.user.notification.stacked.authorList'|language}

Popovers#

Popovers provide additional information of the linked object when a user hovers over a link. We unified the approach for such links:

  1. The relevant DBO class implements wcf\data\IPopoverObject.
  2. The relevant DBO action class implements wcf\data\IPopoverAction and the getPopover() method returns an array with popover content.
  3. Globally available, WoltLabSuite/Core/Controller/Popover is initialized with the relevant data.
  4. Links are created with the anchor template plugin with an additional class attribute whose value is the return value of IPopoverObject::getPopoverLinkClass().

Example:

class Foo extends DatabaseObject implements IPopoverObject {
    public function getPopoverLinkClass() {
        return 'fooLink';
    }
}

class FooAction extends AbstractDatabaseObjectAction implements IPopoverAction {
    public function validateGetPopover() {
        // …
    }

    public function getPopover() {
        return [
            'template' => '…',
        ];
    }
}
require(['WoltLabSuite/Core/Controller/Popover'], function(ControllerPopover) {
    ControllerPopover.init({
        className: 'fooLink',
        dboAction: 'wcf\\data\\foo\\FooAction',
        identifier: 'com.woltlab.wcf.foo'
    });
});
{anchor object=$foo class='fooLink'}
