Description (last modified by kzar)


In Anwiki we have a special animation tag. Anwiki loads the animation.js script on any page that uses it.
Also, each animation has a xml document with animation instructions, these instructions are loaded based on the name attribute of animation tag.

What to change


  1. Update the refresh-static-files script to download
  2. Update the script to process files starting with animation! in a similar way to how interfaces, pages etc are processed. Output should mostly match the XML served by Anwiki. (However _don't_ update image <object> tags to use data URLs, instead wrap the src URL with a call to the inline_image filter.)
  3. Update the script so that animation.js is included on any page that contains an <animation> tag.

  1. Add a filter called inline_image that takes an image path and returns a data URL of the image's contents. Be sure to allow both localised (eg static/image/example.png) and non-localised (eg locales/en/images/example.png) images.

Unfortunately there's more to this than copying the files over, Anwiki appears to process the XML files. For example compare the anim_addicon.xml that is served online to the one under source control.

I've updated the description accordingly.
