Customizable Scaffolding

Frontend
On our radar
At our company we found the need for customizable scaffolding.

While it is possible to have scaffolded screens automatically use a style we found it would be handy if we could customize the scaffolding to automatically put actions like delete with our company style pictogram and change the edit into an edit popup with a special column for this edit and delete. etc. etc.
Now we have to manually put a webblock inside every new screen we create and alter it with the correct names/ids.

Really hope this feature will be in a future version!

On the theme's IntelliWarp Images we can define a default True, False and Info Balloon images. I would like to be able to define a default label for each of these images. this label would automatically populate the Image Widget's Label property when IntelliWarp is used.

Cheers.

It would be great if we could customise intelliwarp and define how it will be behaviour, then we can auto generate screens the way we want it to generate.

Merged this idea with 'Scaffolding Script Building Tool' (created on 14 Apr 2019 16:11:23 by Pecenin)

Allow programmers (customers) to create brand new Scaffolding inside the platform, ultimately resulting in a forge-like repository of installable scaffolding.

To accomplish this, some new platform functionalities would be required, for instance:

1) Scaffolding Events: Kind of event that is triggered when programmer realize some mapped iteration in service studio, like dragging a table inside a web flow, but instead of call a platform-defined scaffolding, it will show a list of available scaffolding scripts associated with this particular type of scaffold event.

2) Scaffolding Scripts: The executable scaffold itself, a executable script, previous generated by a programmer using a visual tool, i.e., service studio, but with a special feature for, when activated, "recording" the interactions while developing some application functionality. [i know, many others implications comes here]

3) Scaffolding Builder: The tool used to recording a new scaffolding script [kind of service studio+], which would be saved and shared with the outsystems community or local developer team. Some insights here could be borrowed from how existing testing automation tools works, like Selenium.

If this kind of features is feasible in the platform, gradually, it could empower developer with shared and reusable scaffolding scripts for a lot of application functionality variants.

Best regards.

Merged this idea with 'Custom Scaffolding and Screen Templates' (created on 18 Dec 2018 17:57:54 by Bernardo Pinheiro)

With this new Front End Framework, I see myself asking why is it that we still can't customize the scaffolding that the platform provides?

And now with OS11 , Screen templates where introduced! Is it on the backlog to make these custom? Ie, let the front end develop custom screen templates for the use of the dev team?

Thanks

Changed the status to
Working on it
expected delivery in Q1 2019


Hi Bernardo,

Not sure I understood your first question. What sort of scaffolding customization are you looking for? Can you give us a few examples?

Regarding your second question, I have good news for you :) We're actually wrapping up the custom templates experience. We're targeting to release it mid January.

Kind regards, and keep the ideas coming,

Ricardo Alves

For example,

when I drag and drop a datatable to my "HomePage" the OS generates a table automatically.

The idea is that, I can customize this table that will be generated by 'OS'. So that whenever I drag and drop a table the 'OS' generates my custom table, not the standard templeite table!


Is that already possible?
