How to create widgets for your Shika user dashboard?

How to create widgets for your Shika user dashboard?

In the process of making Shika's user dashboard more user friendly we have made some major changes by adding new widgets to the dashboard. With this you can now build your own widgets and give your users the freedom to choose which widgets he/ she wants to be shown on the dashboard.

We have created a new table #__tjlms_dashboard which contains all the widgets per users. If the users has not set any widgets to be shown or is using the default dashboard, basic dashboard plugins will be shown.

For Shika 1.0, user will not be able to select the widget and hence only the basic widget will be shown. This feature will be implemented in version 1.1.

Shika Beta 11 Out Now!

Shika Beta 11 Out Now!

It has been really long since the Beta 10 release of Shika! As we all know that we are really close to the stable release which can happen anytime soon. Entire feature list has been finalized and this is the Beta 11 we are rolling out.

You will be overwhelmed to see the number of Bug fixes (500+) done in Shika after Beta 10, especially if you are an Early Adopter!

Why is it taking so long to release a stable version?

  • Techjoomla has implemented a new stability matrix (Which will take our product's quality to new heights). All our products will undergo a deeper, closer QA tests.
  • Every change needs some time to be incorporated! Our devs are still used to Techjoomla's conventional QA and development methods and it is taking time for making them adapt to the new stability matrix.
  • We agree that this is time consuming but Rome was not built in a day! Shika 1.0 will be the most stable product delivered by us.

 We are blogging about the change in the Development and the QA process at Techjoomla. You have a look at the first blog here.
