After quite some months without any activity on the extension, here are finally some news.
In fact, various personal reasons made that I couldn't work on it, mainly for a matter of time and motivation.
This implied no updates to the github repository or to the Magento Connect page, as well as no replies to the different messages received during this time.
Anyway, I should now be able to take up the development of the extension, albeit on a less regular basis.
Sorry to everybody that has been waiting for a reply during all this time ! I'll try to answer to each PM and question in the upcoming days (or weeks, given their number).
By the way, don't hesitate to check the github page, I came back there a few weeks ago so most issues were adressed and some new commits were pushed (including fixes and small new features).
And finally, most importantly, thanks for all the support the extension has received !
New 0.8.9 version available for testing
The new 0.8.9 version is available on github (link), as well as the current "official" version (link).
The 0.8.9 version is currently released for tests purposes only. Depending on the feedbacks it'll get, I'll release it on the Magento Connect whenever it'll be completely ready. Every feedback is welcomed !
Here is the list of what it includes :
- new permissions system (much finer and per grid),
- custom columns system to allow adding all kinds of new columns (usable by 3rd party extensions : just a few lines of xml and a model to add a new customizable column)
- some custom columns as first examples of what is possible to do : categories column for the products grid, addresses fields for the orders grid, ...
- widespread in-grid editor,
- custom default parameters behaviours,
- and much more...
This extension applies itself by default to all grids, so some of those grids may not be compatible with all or part of the features that are added to them.
Those potential compatibility problems are not troublesome at all (see "Incompatible grids"), but this is why this extension is still currently released as an alpha version.
Currently only available for products and CMS pages, it is made to be appliable to much more grids (what will hopefully be done in next versions)
Anyway, I don't recommend at the moment to use it directly in a production environment, at least without having tested it before, as it is still a work-in-progress, for which I currently need a maximum of feedbacks !
As it is really difficult - or even almost impossible - for me to test all the grids with all versions of Magento, I welcome every feedback about any problem you could find (of any kind), or even as a whole, every feedback about improvement of existing features, or about new ideas.
All this, on top of all the extensibility possibilities for the developers, could definitely help me to make this extension still even better !
When you find a grid that is not working when it is rewrited, just go to "System" > "Custom Grids" > "List", and disable the corresponding rewrite. The grid will then go back to its base behaviour, without remaining problem.
Also, it is possible to determine a list of which grids should not be rewrited at all, in "System" > "Configuration" > "General" > "Custom Grids" (this feature is likely to be improved in next releases).
This extension is completely free of use, and will remain so. However, it has cost me countless hours of work to propose the current version, and it will still take lot of time to develop new features, improve existing ones, while continuing to ensure the best compatibility with all grids, and provide support for it.
So, if it is just the extension you always dreamed to see, or if you simply use it and like it, please consider making a donation !
By adding a customgrid.xml file to your module's "etc" directory, along with a type model, you can add new columns renderers, to add new rendering formats, and, for each grid :
On top of this, events are now dispatched to let other extensions have access to some features, so that potential compatibility problems can easily be solved
Note : there is no documentation about it (at least at the moment), but you can still find many examples in this extension's source code
