ACS is a Spip plugin to configure quickly some skeletons sets from a “click-playground” of the Spip site private area.
- For projects managers, ACS simplifies tasks sharing between developpers, web-designers, and webmasters: a web-designer is not supposed to be a skeleton specialist.
- For developers, ACS provides an Application Programming Interface (API) to create new components and/or include existing components to their skeletons.
- For web-designers, ACS helps set a web-design much more quickly, in total independence from Spip skeletons developers.
ACS components are multi-languages compliant. Here are samples of some available components:
ACS for webmaster
To be directly usable by non-Spip-experts webmasters, ACS distribution include sets of highly configurable ready-to-use skeletons sets, like the Cat model (Components catalog).
When plugin ACS downloaded, installed, activated, and configured, webmaster (and other authorized ACS administrators) can go to a new menu choice in the Spip Configuration menu: sub-menu “Configure website”.
The simplest way to begin ? Go to Components pane and configure desired components of active ACS model.
In the Cat model , as sample, configuring the Fond (background) component is enough to set default values for whole website, and configuring the Onglets (panes) component is enough to activate default values for the built-in navigation menu panes.
ACS for Spip skeletons developpers
ACS fit with any Spip skeleton, in which you can embed your own components and/or some existing components from active ACS model .
Improve existing component
ACS uses Spip override system for components: components included in skeleton(s) set(s) choosen on ACS administration pane overrides same-named components from active ACS model.
To develop new components as to customize an existing one, define a skeleton directory with a composants sub-directory that contain only new created components. ACS can define several levels for override: you can properly and easily isolate downloaded skeletons elements from customized elements. (So, it’s NOT useful, and discouraged, to directly modify components in the plugin distribution directories)
ACS plugin will fit more and more requirements as many contributors helps enhance the ACS models choices.
