Topic: Code Repository [rewritten]
Since I was not happy at all with Symfony2 and the way it over-complicates stuff I've got to work and rewritten the whole Repository (like... lets say 90% of it's code). We're now on Codeigniter + HMVC. If you're starting a site I highly recommend using those two.
Here's what happened thanks to the rewrite:
A ton of changes in design:
Added more status messages when using the repo
Fixed navigation bar
Added breadcrumbs all over the site for easy navigation
Added descriptions of the main pages
Easy to see Download buttons
Correct stats in Lists
Make the repo look like the rest of the site as much as possible
Added a portal-like Index page
Added XML listings for Indicators and Addons (now let's have some patience and wait for Popov to make use of those in FSB/FST)
Urls are looking similar in the different parts of the repo for less confusion with structure
Loads like 10xfaster compared to old version
Rating works on all sections
Rating is now easier to understand
Comments work on all sections
Fixed XML values bug when listing for FSB
Avatars of comments appear correctly now, no broken image links
You can one-click copy strategies to clipboard and Ctrl+v to FSB
You can upload new version of a strategy, without deleting the repository record. Just make sure it has the same title in the XML
You can also update C# files (addons and indicators) without deleting their page
You can even more easily add comments
You can sort strategies/addons/indicators by their most important stats
You can NOT upload a strategy/indicator/addon with the same name as another file from that type. That is done to avoid confusion. Strategies use strategy name from the xml conents. Addons and indicators use name from the Name field you are entering manually in the repository.
Repository has been included in the main site menu and moved from http://repo.forexsb.com/ to http://forexsb.com/repository/ (if you pasted a link somewhere, don't worry. I've put a redirect from repo.forexsb.com to every page on the new address and your "old" link will continue to work flawlessly!
Popov has uploaded a bunch of indicators from the forum to the repository with reference to their respected authors along with links to the forum threads. (Thanks!)
Feel free to come up with ideas and comments on the repository. We will consider those for sure when we get to brainstorm for upgrades.
