Aloha Improvements Coming

In the last weeks after finishing my diploma thesis, I had the pleasure to work on Aloha, more specifically Aloha Blocks.

Aloha Blocks are a technique to make non-editable content editable through Aloha. In TYPO3 Phoenix we use it to implement nested content elements, but we might also use it lateron for implementing links.

I’ve been working mainly on implementing:

  • Drag and Drop
  • Cut/Copy/Paste
  • Deletion
  • API cleanup
  • general stability

… And all this in the major browsers starting from IE7.

The code is almost ready for merging!

It has been a lot of fun to work with Clemens from Gentics, who was my contact person during the time! I look forward to more of these projects.
