|Extension UI||Garth Braithwaite||5/21/12 3:10 PM|
We had a discussion on the Guidelines for Extension UI. I posted most of the changes we discussed in a deck available at http://garthdb.github.com/Presentations/extension_ui
The main area where there is still discussion are the guidelines for the application menus, having a large list of every sub menu available makes finding contextually relevant functionality tricky. On the other hand, hiding and showing menu items depending on filetype hides extensions (and can be jarring if it changes from file to file). Perhaps on a less important note, it is hard to guess all filetype extensions as well. In the example of CakePHP template files (.ctp) all php functionality should be available to them.
Feel free to comment here, and we'll update the slides until we are ready to put a document together for the wiki.

Thanks for putting this together.
I think we had talked about a couple of things in the last meeting about this that aren't fully reflected in the slides yet:
