Sep 26, 2014

Yahoo announces it will 'immediately stop all new development on YUI'!

Sep 5, 2014

Yahoo YUIThere was a surprising announcement from Yahoo they 'have made the difficult decision to immediately stop all new development on YUI'!  Luckily, Exponent CMS is already moving away from YUI and toward jQuery/Twitter Bootstrap.  In fact, the next release will provide a YUI-free Twitter Bootstrap 3 theme.  While this probably won't immediately be true for the e-Commerce modules, it is almost already fully transitioned elsewhere.  However, not to fret...Exponent will continue to support YUI based themes regardless of Yahoo's failure to update the framework. ...

PHP Version 5.6 Stable Released

Aug 28, 2014

Though not specific to Exponent CMS, you should be made aware that PHP version 5.6 has been released as 'stable' (http://php.net/archive/2014.php#id2014-08-28-1).  All the more reason why the PHP developers have recommend upgrading to at least the stable version of 5.5.x or the previous stable version of 5.4.x and (quickly) moving away from versions 5.3.x and 5.2.x.  At some point in the future, upgrades to Exponent CMS will require PHP v5.3.x or greater and no longer support PHP v5.2.x. ...

Theming with Twitter Bootstrap version 3

Twitter Bootstrap 3 - MObile FirstTwitter Bootstrap version 3 (BS3) is becoming the user interface framework library of choice for Exponent CMS.  Though initially shipped with Exponent v2.3.0, that BS3 implementation was still lacking some refinement, and wasn't fully implemented across the entire user interface.  This has been somewhat remedied by the first three patches to v2.3.0, and will be even more-so in the upcoming patch #4 release.  In this article I'll attempt to share some of the basics of how to create a Twitter Bootstrap 3 custom theme. ...

jQuery and Exponent....sitting in a tree...

jQueryThe jQuery javascript library has been integrated into Exponent since v2.2.0 in an effort to help us move away from the YUI library.  jQuery is more popular and has many more add-ons/plugins/widgets than does YUI.  It is also the javascript library of choice for Twitter Bootstrap.  Just like YUI, Exponent easily integrates the use of jQuery into the Exponent framework.  Here are some tips on using jQuery with your custom theme or view. ...
