    rich:editor Renderer for Mobiles

    Lukáš Fryč Master

      I have been thinking about using separated renderer for Editor in case of requests from mobile devices.

       

      This has one unpleasant consequence: we need to detect support in core framework, which means moving detection logic from Showcase to core framework.

       

      If we will go that way, I suggest to create separated module (richfaces-mobile-detection) which will take responsibility for this feature. Advantage will be in having this module pluggable - user will be able to upgrade mobile detection on demand without need to upgrade whole framework.

       

      Can you think about alternative principles?

          Hi Lukas,

           

          Bringing device detection into the platform would be a great benefit for RichFaces developers.  Making this kinds of thing easy is exactly our goal!

           

          As for a seperate module, I suggest baking it into the core for RichFaces 4.1, and we can look at providing it as a separate module in RichFaces 4.2+, when we re-evaluate our packaging strategy.  We should discuss this further at our team meeting - I'll add it to the agenda.

            Only my concern is that user should have possibility to override our logic - we can also achieve this by allowing to override detection logic (for example with services feature).

              At the team meeting, we have considerer consequences and in the M4, we won't take a risk to introduce mobile detection logic into core.

               

              That's why we are postponing that into 4.2, and we will document how to use rich:editor on mobiles for 4.1:

               

              • use conditionally renderer rich:editor and h:inputTextarea
