Automating multiple extension translation management using the Transifex client and a shell script

Automating-multiple-extension-translation-management-using-the-Transifex-client-and-a-shell-script

We've been using Transifex for more than a year now, and quite happy with the way crowdsourcing can help enrich the reach of your extensions. However, updating all the resources for all the extensions was a painful task and something everyone wanted to avoid. The tx-client eases some pain by allowing easy pushes & pulls of source files & translations. However, the tx-client relies on a 'config' file to be updated with all the resource slugs. With so many extensions and also with so many plugin language files getting added regularly, it's a tough task to keep on updating the config file.

We are super happy to let you know that SocialAds 2.9 is here with Awesome New Features + Joomla 3.X Support ! Techjoomla

SocialAds 2.9 brings you a whole new Advertising Pricing Model which we call Advertising Wallet. With this new model, SocialAds introduces the concept of Campaigns & Budgets. You add money to your Ad Walllet, create any number of campaigns you want & set daily spending budgets for the campaigns. You can create Ads against campaigns without having to pay & checkout for every Ad.This not only streamlines the flow for your advertisors but also allows them to group their Ads in campaigns & manage their spend in a better way.

Selection 002

Google Ads, Facebook & LinkedIn Ads already work on this model. Note that SocialAds will continue to support both the Orignal Pay per Ad mode as well as the new Ad Wallet mode. You have the option to choose which suits you best !

If you wish to switch your payment model to the new Ad Wallet mode, we have provided a quick migration tool that will convert your user's existing ad balances to the new model on a prorata basis. The Migrator also supports a migration from Ad Wallet mode to Pay per Ad mode.

campaign

Note that from this version onwards we have dropped support for Joomla 1.5. Existing subscribers can download this release from the my Subscriptions area. Please look at our updated documentation for details on migrating to the new mode if you wish to. If you are not using one of the greatest Advertising Systems for Joomla yet, Buy it today !

Deploying Joomla projects using GIT

Deploying-Joomla-projects-using-GIT

Over the years we've been using various methods to deploy websites to servers. FTP is everyone's first love and hot favourite. But when GIT came along and we started using that our VCS of choice it became increasingly evident that we can use it for deployment too. The biggest challenge here was managing the database.  Because of the way new table creations and table alterations are handled in Joomla we decided to leave out table updates in the automated deployment process and chose to handle them by extension installation or manual creation. With that decided it became easy to structure and write code so that it can be deployed via a simple script.

I'm giving here an example of the deployment script for a website that relies heavily on Zoo. We also have a few other extensions but Zoo is central. A few points about our setup

  1. The entire Joomla/images folder is excluded from GIT. Any images that the application itself needs are stored in media or along with the template
  2. Zoo saves its fields and settings in .config files somewhere in the /media/zoo folder. These are excluded from git
  3. The user-generated content like images and other files are of course excluded from git
  4. cache, log & tmp are excluded from git
  5. configuration.php too is of course excluded

Here's the structure of the project's git repo

Zoo - Creating an address field element

Zoo-Creating-an-address-field-element

Here's a short tutorial on creating a Zoo element that has multiple sub-fields. A good example for the same, which we've also used as a sample is an address field. An address field will typically have different parts such as city, zip, state etc. I assume you have already gone through the zoo documentation on creating a new custom element - http://www.yootheme.com/zoo/documentation/developers/create-a-custom-element

Step 1: The XML file
create the media/zoo/applications//elements/address/address.xml file.

    Address    Tekdi    Feb 2013    Copyright (C) tekdi        http://www.tekdi.net    1.0.0    Repeateble city,country and state fields

Step 2: The PHP file
create this file: media/zoo/applications//elements/address/address.php

JTicketing for Android at work

Last week we wrote about a sneak peek into the new JTicketing Android app. This weekend, we got a fantastic opportunity to use it for an actual event. Techjoomla was a proud sponsor for the recent Joomla Day India that happened on 9-10th February 2013. And that's not it, our own J!Ticketing was powering the event booking engine of Joomla Day and an 'event manager app' made by Techjoomla and 'apptitude' was used to verify the tickets for all participants. It was fun to QR scan all the participant tickets and check them in. The checked in participants also got a welcome email that told them about the schedule! Watch the video below to see it in action!

Joomla Day India, JTicketing and a whole lotta fun!

Joomla Day India 2013

Team Techjoomla was at the Joomla Day India (Mumbai) this weekend, and what an event it was! We had Ryan Ozimek (Ex-President, OSM), David Hurley (Development Team Leader) and Ofer Cohen (OSM Board Member) fly in from USA and Israel. Additionally, more than half a dozen speakers from various parts of India made up for an exciting lineup of talks for both days. We also had an enthusiastic audience from several parts of India, and all of them were more than willing to soak in every bit of the knowledge the community wished to impart! This also marked the alpha release of the JTicketing app for Event Managers. Read more about it at the end of the story. The Joomla Handshake #jhandshake too was ideated, you can view the video on Ryan's Vine.

Creating your own ajax popups and actions in Jomsocial

Creating-your-own-ajax-popups-and-actions-in-Jomsocial

Everyone using Jomsocial like how they show those nice popup windows when you add friends, send a message or join a group.

In a project where you integrate more features or other extensions into Jomsocial, it's important to use the same look and feel for the popups so that there is a consistent look throughout the site. With Jomsocial's plugin architecture it is possible to add your own popups and actions. We're demonstrating here an example, which allows you to group your friends as Friends/Family/Acquaintances etc
