shika1.1.13

We are happy to bring you Shika 1.1.13 which brings an updated Box API integration which is used for rendering document type lessons.

The older version of our plugin was using legacy Box view APIs which will be having their EOL late this year. Hence the older version is being deprecated. You can find out more about the EOL announcement from box here : https://blog.box.com/blog/new-box-view

This new release is a HUGE step as it opens the doors to several new document types to be supported in the near future as the new API allows for high-fidelity, interactive viewers for documents, images, videos, 360 images and videos, 3D files and dozens of other file types. We will be working on bringing these new enhancements to you as we extend our tracking capabilities to the new file types.

Read on for details and instructions on setting up and migrating to the new plugin.

joomla-siebtlingsgeburt

When it comes to CMS comparisons between the popular content management systems, 'Out of the box SEO Capabilities' are always a very important factor. Now for those who have used Joomla! know that Joomla's SEO capabilities have steadily improved over the years and the new router in Joomla 3.8 takes it up several levels. 

To prove Joomla's mettle in this areas, the Joomla Optimisation team has decided to enter the SEO Contest 'Siebtlingsgeburt' by SEO-Day in Germany (Cologne). It involves an imaginary keyword 'siebtlingsgeburt' which means seven births. We thank the enthusiastic and talented bunch of designers, coders, storytellers, translators who are working to make this happen ! They recently reached out to us and asked us for a little help in their mission to 'Help Captain Joomla save the 7 cute puppies from being killed by “Glatzkröte” (bald toad)' . To make this happen, we are reaching out to you, our community. We need to get as many people as we can linking and visiting the below link. I'd suggest you go there right away, it is a very interesting read ! 

In a nutshell, here is how you can help. 

Visit the Siebtlingsgeburt link and tell your friends to do so too !Write a blog post telling your audience about this contest and ask them to spread the word. You need to add the link title as  "siebtlingsgeburt" (https://www.joomla.org/3/de/siebtlingsgeburt" title="siebtlingsgeburt">siebtlingsgeburt)Share the post on Facebook and other social media

Shika Roadmap Update !

Copy-of-Shika-Release-Banners-10

If you have been following our blogs and social channels, you will know that we have released several incremental updates in the 1.1x series. In fact we have had to break typical semantic versioning policy in order to push in several small feature updates that could not wait till the next major version.

It has also been decided to introduce Bootstrap 3 sooner than originally planned in terms of version numbers since an increasing number of clients have asked for it. Since this would need a major version release on account of backward compatibility breaks, it warrants a major version.

So here is the proposed roadmap for the upcoming versions of Shika.

Joomla REST API extension com_api version 2.2 released

Joomla-REST-API-extension-com_api-version-2.2-released-1

In the past few weeks we have made incremental upgrades to com_api, our REST API extension for Joomla. For those who are not aware, com_api is a quick and easy way to add REST APIs to Joomla. Extensible via plugins, you can easily add support for more Joomla extensions.  This blog details the changes & improvements done from from 2.0 to 2.2.

The key change is support for SEF URLs, which will enable you to create better URLs for your API endpoints, like /api/articles/article/34. Till now, the API endpoints could only be accessed by Joomla non-sef URLs, making the URLs look clunky.

Few other changes include support for the Authorization header, and being able to override the response envelope for the resources. Also a few bug fixes around viewing logs and a performance improvement for sites that had a lot of API consumers.

Documentation

We have revamped our documentation to make it easy for developers to write their own API plugins. You can find it here : http://techjoomla.github.io/com_api/

Impact

Version 2.0 and onward introduces a backward compatibility break in the default output structure of the response. AppCarvers customers please check the blog on appcarvers.com before you upgrade.
