Subject [jira] [Commented] (DOXIASITETOOLS-134) Remove special handling of date format in DefaultSiteRenderer
Date Sun, 03 Jan 2016 11:16:40 GMT


Hervé Boutemy commented on DOXIASITETOOLS-134:

can you copy in the description some example of code that you want to avoid, please? to make
the intent more clear

Then don't forget that there are compatibility issues: if a newer version of Doxia Sitetools
gives more features, a skin has to work with previous versions of Sitetools

one copy/paste that I hate, for example, is
{code}  #if ( $href.toLowerCase().startsWith("http:/") || $href.toLowerCase().startsWith("https:/")
    $href.toLowerCase().startsWith("ftp:/") || $href.toLowerCase().startsWith("mailto:") ||
    $href.toLowerCase().startsWith("file:/") || ($href.toLowerCase().indexOf("://") != -1)
but I know that if I add a new method to DecorationModel to have the feature as API, any skin
using this new feature will have a minimum Sitetools requirement, then a minimum maven-site-plugin
requirement: currently, this is a dependency that we completely avoided

then I'd like to be very cautious about new features in Doxia Sitetools to make skins easier
to maintain, since this could have the opposite effect, with people complaining about skins
not working

> {{dateFormat}} is double-checked from validity and existance in decoration model and
set with a fallback when everything fails. We should solely rely on the decoration model because
it has a fixed value. This would save code and duplicate fixed values. Every deviation from
it is undefined behavior.
