Media area (Aeva Media integration)
« on May 7th, 2011, 12:57 PM »Last edited on June 2nd, 2011, 04:27 PM by Nao/Gilles
Feature: Media area
Developer: Nao
Target: everyone
Status: 80% (Aeva Media 2.10 implementation working 99%, work has yet to be done on further integrating AeMe into the Wedge internals, such as using it in place of the attachment system.)

I think what most people thought when they heard Arantor and Nao were teaming up on a SMF fork, was "Really? A SMF with Aeva Media and SimpleDesk installed by default? I'm in!". Well, it doesn't have SimpleDesk (yet!), but yes, it has Aeva Media. Officially it loses the 'Aeva' in favor of generic naming, but it's all in there.
The same features you loved before -- now at full speed in Wedge, including all of the features in Aeva Media 2.10, for free. Now if that isn't commitment! The only thing that actually disappears is Highslide -- because of the confusing license, I decided to rewrite it from a cleaner base that allows for use on commercial websites. So, instead of a 30kb gzipped Highslide, we now have a 800-byte gzipped Zoomedia that does the exact same stuff for pictures. Not kidding you. (Support for other media types is being worked on.)

:edit: Zoomedia is now 3 kilobytes after gzipping. Adds better animations, support for HTML divs, and finally works across all major browser versions (including IE6).

Is it a bug or a feature?

When you clicking "Zoom" the picture opens up in in full screen mode and there's no way to get back to the entire album. Only way is to click back on the Browser button.

Ah, yes, I always forget to fix that one...! It's been in there since the first version of Zoomedia, you know... ;)
Fixed locally, will be in my next commit.

Any have any opinions on the settings stuff..?

And what about the current animation? It's the funky one. Is it perfect, or too funky? (Nope, I can't have a "less funky" version... It would force me to add animations, and I'm not going into these for now. It's either linear, like it used to be, or funky like now.)

A random pic for a quick test...:

That's really funky. Like it a lot.

I would prefer to move the more options to a collapsed menue item.
