#176 Return behavior after adding media is non-intuitive ui defect 13 years ago
After I add a new piece of media, the site takes me to my profile
page, of all places. Even if I didn't start out on my profile page
when I clicked the 'Submit media' button. How silly.

Two solutions:

1.) After adding new media, always take the user back to their
gallery page. Makes more sense than their profile page--what does
that have to do with their pictures?

2.) After adding new media, take the user back to whatever page
they started out on when they started the media-adding interaction.
This is probably more complicated to code, but it does make adding
media slightly more smooth for the user.

#244 GIF images work on media pages in most (of my personally experianced) cases, but not all. graphic design/interface defect 13 years ago
When the user uploads an image we convert it to one or two
additional JPEG sizes.

1. We will always create thumbnail.jpg.
2. If the image dimensions exceed one of 640x640px, we will create
3. If there exists a medium.jpg file for a media entry, we will
   show it on the media page,
   **else we will display the original file**

This means that GIF images work if the fit within 640x640px


1. Create GIF thumbnails and medium.jpg if the original is a gif

Possible setbacks with this is that some thumbnails may present a
large download despite it's small size.

Possible solutions to possible setbacks¶

It might be possible to resize a preset duration for the thumbnail
animation and create the medium.jpg (if needed) with the full

#341 Simultaneous upload and metadata/description editing ui defect 12 years ago
It would be great that the upload could start for a media file
while I'm adding the title, description, and tags.

#344 Properly localize dates/times programming defect 12 years ago
In the long run GMG should display dates/times in a proper local
format. This might involve enhancing the current translations, so
that the dates/times are positioned correctly.

Useful link:

#5613 Configuration for default video quality programming 0.13.0 defect 4 years ago

with 0.10 version, a nice enhancement for video quality selection. 3 level are available by default (360, 480 and 720p), is there any configuration to generate only some of them and what matter more for me is could we force a default quality for the user, actually it's the lowest by default, which poorly show quality works for people not knowing how to change the quality...

thanks a lot again,

#180 Have a javascript-y autocomplete feature for tags you've used before ui enhancement 13 years ago
If you've used a tag previously and you start typing the first
couple (unique) characters of that tag, we should conveniently
autocomplete it for you.

#207 Add tag list to user profile programming enhancement 13 years ago

Currently the left part of the user's profile only contains... the profile.

It'd be great if below that, we could have a list of tags they've used.

  • Maybe with a number behind it telling you how many times they've

been used.

  • If there are a lot of tags, say, more than 20 or 30, the list

should be cut off.

  • Of course each of these tags should link to the /u/tag/X page

and list all of the media with that tag.

  • Maybe we can add a "show all" link that links to a full page for

the user's tags. Maybe a tag cloud there?

    **schendje's profile**¶

    I like swimming and eating pasta. Preferably at the same time.

    | **Favorite tags** (show all)     |
    | spain (8) sky (5) cows (4)       |
    | portrait (4) self-portrait (3)   |

#227 add multi-tag views programming enhancement 13 years ago
In IRC schendje just reminded me about the multi-tag views that
would be awesome to have:


May we please have this now?

BONUS: /u/superwoahdude/tag/bunnies - subscribe to a user's tags
BONUS: /u/superwoahdude+awesomewoahman - subscribe to combo of
BONUS: /u/superwoahdude+awesomewoahman/tag/bunnies - subscribe to a
tag from a combo of users
BONUS: /u/superwoahdude+awesomewoahman/tag/bunnies+fangs -
subscribe to the intersection of arbitrary lists of users and tags

#247 Add a language selector programming enhancement 13 years ago
Please add a way to change UI language, overriding Accept-Language.
E.g. a drop-down and/or an URL piece.

#263 A way to choose filename different from the before-upload one programming enhancement 13 years ago
An uploaded file currently uses the name it had on the uploader's
computer, with no other way to change that than changing the local
name before uploading.

That's a privacy issue, since the uploader may not expect for the
local name to become public, and will not necessarily notice it

MediaWiki uses a good solution usable with what GMG does:
after the local file is chosen but before it is uploaded, if JS is
enabled, it shows the original file name, lets the uploader edit
it, and uses the result (replacing spaces with underscores).

#267 counter to display access of media (showing the number of views) programming enhancement 13 years ago
what I missed - as new user to mediagoblin:

a counter how often the media was accessed
(though that could be done with a external counter also)

#320 Video: Extract and save poster image programming enhancement 12 years ago
In HTML5 video, there's a poster attribute on the tag, it contains
the URL to an image that should be shown initially before the
player has started.

Fetch from encoded video. It's available on the instantiated
VideoThumbnailer in the dst\_data after encoding the video.

We should perhaps use the VideoThumbnailer. IIRC it's possible to
pass custom dimensions to it.

#385 Show the original’s file size and dimensions on the file page other enhancement 12 years ago
Currently there is no indication of the original's file size or

#260 A way for a reader to see thumbnails/resized versions in other sizes programming enhancement 13 years ago
The reader should be able to view galleries and image pages with
the images resized to other sizes than a single default one: it is
not possible for the browser to scale thumbnails up infinitely
without losing their quality.


-  Flickr has at least "small" and "medium" gallery views, and
   several sizes for viewing and downloading of individual images.
-  MediaWiki allows registered users to choose from several
   thumbnail sizes for viewing of pages, and to generate a thumbnail
   of any size.

#268 display where media is used (on external locations) programming enhancement 13 years ago
the more the media is used/(reused as mix) the higher the
importance probably
for me as creator as well as observer this would be a nice to have

- trackback (as with blog posts)? perhaps over an additional
service where people can send a ping to when they use the media?
- a bot which scans for media + indexes them somehow?

#346 Keyboard shortcuts programming enhancement 12 years ago
It would be great to have the interface accessible via keyboard

- Links such as
- Logged in user
- Log out
- Login
- Forms
- Picture navigation
- Pagination

I like the way FogBugz has done it, you click Ctrl+, and it shows
the shortcut character for each of the links/subsections/inputs.
You then click the shortcut character to activate the control. Of
course, that does not fit for all things, such as media

Input is welcome. (ahah, pun intended)

#348 Ads support with Open X other enhancement 12 years ago
I think that at some time we will need to include ads support, and
that for this it could be ideal the open-source advertising server

I've written more details in my wiki user page, since I think this
will need a lot of literature:
`http://wiki.mediagoblin.org/User:Manolinux#Openx\_support <http://wiki.mediagoblin.org/User:Manolinux#Openx_support>`_

Tell me your opinion here or by IRC.

#351 Markdown editor programming enhancement 12 years ago
Add a markdown editor for textareas which use markdown (to improve
user experience). Solutions exist under *possibly* free licenses.
Most are based off StackOverflow's reversed engineered WMD editor
(which might or might not be under a free license). Original
reverse engineering project:
`https://github.com/cky/wmd/tree <https://github.com/cky/wmd/tree>`_
(with 112 forks)

So implementation is in three steps:

-  Check with lawyers about possible implications of using a
   reverse engineered WMD editor version
-  If OK, find a good fork which suits MediaGoblin's needs
-  Find all markdown input fields in code and add the editor (along
   with tweaking and making it pretty)

#417 JavaScripts and WTForms messages are not translated programming defect 12 years ago

The strings in the JavaScripts (e. g. show_password.js) and the !WTForms messages (e. g. “Invalid Input”) cannot be translated right now.

#418 Leave slug empty until we are sure media processing was successful programming defect 12 years ago

We should leave the slug field of a media entry empty until we are done processing and only set it if processing was successful.

#465 Cannot delete attachments programming defect 12 years ago

Attachments cannot be deleted without deleting the whole "medium."

#508 You shouldn't have to upload a whole file to find out mediagoblin doesn't support it programming defect 12 years ago

I'm not really sure the best way to solve this, but we had a user who spent an hour attempting to upload a video only to get the message "sorry, but I don't support that file". I'm not sure what the best way to prevent this is... maybe we could pass up a list of file extensions we know we support? That's not really great either though considering the "catch all" or "catch conditionally" media type option we currently have. So, not really sure. But we should definitely deal with it.

#692 Proper documentation on how to author tests documentation defect 11 years ago

We need better documentation on how to author unit tests. This should go in docs/source/devel/ on its own page, maybe "writing tests" or some such.

The following should be mentioned:

  • How to run tests (even though this is covered elsewhere)
  • What tools we use (pytest, webtest)
  • A simple "writing a unit test" example
  • Show to pass an application fixture into a test
  • Show how to set it up with different configs (I can explain this on IRC)

#1004 Videoplayer has wrong height for videos with width>640 programming defect 10 years ago

It is possible to skip transcoding videos that are larger than 640 pixels in some dimension. For instance, this way a user can upload 1280x720 webm videos without transcoding them to smaller. However, there is a bug in the player for these videos.

If a video is wider than 640 pixels, the width of the videoplayer is scaled to 640 pixels but the height of the videoplayer is the same as of the video. Thus, for a 1280x720 video, the player has size 640x720, leaving black bars on top and bottom of the video. Fullscreen obviously works fine.

A sketch of a solution: HTML video player is scaled appropriately if only width or height is given. Thus, give the width as min(width,640) and let the height be chosen automatically.

Modify the video tag in the template mediagoblin/templates/mediagoblin/media_displays/video.html:

<video controls
          {% if global_config['plugins']['mediagoblin.media_types.video']['auto_play'] %}autoplay{% endif %}
          {% if media.media_data.width > 640 %}width=640{% else %}width={{ media.media_data.width }}{% endif %}
          preload="auto" class="video-js vjs-default-skin">

A few things to consider:

  • I hardcoded 640, but it should be retrieved somehow.
  • I removed data-setup because it breaks this fix and I think it's not valid HTML

#1063 Impeller should upload photos programming 1.0 defect 9 years ago

It would be great to get it so that you could upload photos to mediagoblin via Impeller. Currently however you can't even get through the OAuth. It initially looked like Impeller was site scraping however it would seem:

/from #pump.io on Freenode/

<jessica_lily> XgF: I'm wondering how possible it would be to change the site scraping behaviour of impeller with regards to the verifier? or at least provide some kind of fallback which allows you to copy and paste the verifier and enter it manually
<XgF> Jessica_lily: eh? Impeller expects a redirect to a https uri with the verifier. When it detects that, it closes the web view and does the background oauth flow

#1070 Handling languages Babel currently doesn't (Na'vi, Lojban) infrastructure defect 9 years ago

Currently, Babel doesn't support languages like Na'vi, Lojban. The unfortunate side effect of this is that when our language tooling hits these languages, it explodes.

Looking into how to fix this, it looks like Babel downloads the CLDR data on languages, and this is used to populate a big ol' dictionary which is stored in babel.localedata:_cache. Unfortunately, while we *can* monkeypatch this variable (simply load('en_US') once then append 'jbo' or etc to the dictionary), the value we would have to supply is a very, very complex data structure, and I doubt we could provide it correctly. This value is extracted by Babel during the CLDR data downloading/importing process and it is a non-trivial exercise.

I filed a bug looking for a workaround for unidentified languages, but I think a workaround will be hard given the large amount Babel relies on this data. So, probably, we will need to supply CLDR data, but that data is too complex to just write by hand.

One way or another (monkeypatching or not), in order to supply these, we need the proper CLDR data. I spoke to someone involved in the process, and found two things:

  • They are welcome to contributions of Na'vi and Lojban to their catalog, and there is a new contributor page. We should (and likely will) do this. Probably, the process for getting things officially will take some time.
  • In the meanwhile, while going through the process to generate those, we should be able to get the appropriate files to run through the necessary tooling to generate the data we need.

#5483 audio player is not accessible with screen readers graphic design/interface defect 8 years ago

Hi, I am blind, so use a screen reader to access the web. However, your audio player (not sure about video) is inaccessible with them. For example, the play button shows to my screen reader as a clickable of 'black up pointing small triangle" which is not very descriptive. However, when I do click on the triangle, the pause button is a symbol that my screen reader cannot recognize, which simply speaks as clickable. This is on windows, using jaws for windows. I haven't tested with NVDA (an open source screen reader), but with orca on linux, the clickable isn't even seen at all, and there is no way to play the audio. For audio (and video, possibly) I can recommend able player (https://ableplayer.github.io/ableplayer/) as an alternative that is guaranteed to be accessible if done right. IT could also introduce new features, such as closed captions and transcripts on videos. Thanks, -Michael.

#5485 Audio player controls not announced to Orca screenreader graphic design/interface defect 8 years ago

As reported on the Orca Mailing List: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/orca-list/2016-October/msg00113.html

there is at least one instance with an inaccessible video player control: http://vidstorm.tk/u/storm_dragon/m/the-insane-song/

Looking into the Markup it looks like audio.js is the problematic bit: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/mediagoblin.git/tree/mediagoblin/static/js/audio.js

The user reported it in https://mail.gnome.org/archives/orca-list/2016-October/msg00120.html as

"There are no controls, no play, stop, pause, anything other than the slider, which itself is unlabeled."

A good entry point was suggested in https://mail.gnome.org/archives/orca-list/2016-October/msg00121.html

What led to the decision of using/writing this audio.js? Where there alternatives to be considered?

#400 Media licensing should be human readable programming enhancement 12 years ago

When uploading media, the licensing options don't give enough information for most people to make an informed choice.

The current list is: All rights reserved CC BY 3.0 CC BY-SA 3.0 CC BY-ND 3.0 CC BY-NC 3.0 CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 CC0 1.0 Public Domain

Propose better options, helptexts, or perhaps a block of text that changes based on your choice.

#409 oEmbed support programming 1.0 enhancement 12 years ago

nowadays social networking platforms make heavy use of oEmbed for sharing media content in personal activity streams, open platforms like statusNet, diaspora or buddycloud use it as well as big brothers like facebook, tweeter etc.


from xp in diaspora your service should have support for https, please see this issue: https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora/issues/2342#issuecomment-4525027

#467 write test scaffolding for core plugins programming enhancement 12 years ago

The core plugins need some additional test scaffolding to make it easier to write core plugin tests.


Well, so, the problem is that mediagoblin configuration is global and also which plugins are running is also global. There's a bunch of setup/cleanup that needs to get done. It should go in scaffolding to make it easier to deal with.

#486 Drag and drop media uploading support programming enhancement 12 years ago

We should add drag and drop media uploading support to MediaGoblin. Plenty of other applications (including OpenPhoto) have this; why not us?


It might be worth discussing whether or not we want to do some other overhauls to make our upload page more dynamic as well, but just supporting dragging and dropping minimally might be a good first step.

Not sure if this should be a plugin or not? I think probably not but would be interested in what others would think.

#551 Create test that makes sure all migrations are sane programming enhancement 11 years ago

We should have a unit test that instantiates the tables at their first, pre-migration state (basically right after the move to SQL, commit ce29c140ed90fe0e19ed1b68ca8f7cf27aa03e8e) and runs all migrations, then creates a new database and instantiates the models at their current state, and sees if they match. If they don't, the test should fail.

Note: we can't test for constraints in sqlalchemy, but we should otherwise be able to test to moderately general migration sanity.

(Bonus points if it adds a user and a couple of media entries with appropriate media files, etc, but not required to close this bug.)

#567 Support For Ogg Vorbis+Theora programming enhancement 11 years ago

It appears that recordings added are converted to WebM (Vorbis + VP8 inside the modified Matroska container.) Can you please add support to instead encode into Ogg Vorbis + Theora? Every browser that has built-in support for WebM also has support for Ogg Vorbis + Theora but the reverse is not true, giving Ogg Vorbis + Theora greater browser compatibility.

Add to this that the Java Cortado applet [0] can be used as a fallback method means that browsers as far back as Netscape 4 can play these files.

#613 Improving Media collection programming enhancement 11 years ago

Summary of changes :

Basically, to idea is to replace the tedious process to add medias to collection. It's done, by putting the form where media are.

  • When you submit a media
  • When you are on a media's page.

The "add to collection" page no longer exists (yet I haven't removed anything that whould allow it to work... up to you).


  • The media_collect.html has been splitted to be used as a stand alone or as par of another form (start.html). The media's information has been removed, it's now contextual.
  • The "embeddable form" is in utils/collection_form.html
  • submit/start.html embeds the form above


The "add to collection" method has been put in tools/collection.py so it can be called from the "submit a media form" and from within the media page.

  • in user_pages/views.py
    • media_home : adding the collection form
    • media_collect : it calls the collection_tools method instead
  • in submit/views.py : calls the collection_tools method, passing the new media's data

I've slightly changed the behavior when you type an existing collection : it add the media to the existing collection instead of showing an error. It was mainly because I couldn't find a way to reload the media entry page without losing the filled form. Moreover, it's a smoother way to handle the error. Here are the changes


#734 Document the config options available in config_spec.ini documentation enhancement 11 years ago

It would be nice if we had all of the config options documented in one place.

#782 Spectogram should be created client side programming enhancement 11 years ago

Mediagoblin should get the the data use in the spectrogram from the file, but the actual rendering should be passed to the browser and done client side.

#1086 Add CAPTCHA support infrastructure enhancement 9 years ago

Add template and authentication hooks to enable CAPTCHA plugins to be easily integrated.

#5319 support for HQ videos programming enhancement 9 years ago

Hey there, i tryed to let the Transcoder transcoding in better Quality (1080p). So i use this options for example:

# vp8enc options
self.destination_dimensions = kwargs.get('dimensions', (1080, 1080))
self.vp8_quality = kwargs.get('vp8_quality', 10)

...in the transcoding.py

After assetlink and dbupdate, there has nothing changed. I think the handling of videos on "Media"goblin is a big problem. You cant enjoy Videos in that damn bad quality!

So i think, okey lets transcode to webm Files on the Client PCs before uploading - no, you can forget it! The Player Interface is a bad Joke on untranscoded Files! Here an Example of 1080p WebM: https://media.tchncs.de/u/milan/m/test/

I understand, that the Player dont let you switch in Resolutions. But damned, so let us please configure in which Quality Videos can uploaded by users...

#458 Functional testing via selenium, phantomjs, or similar programming task 12 years ago

It would be good to have a way to run functional tests that mimic user behavior and tie them into our unit testing commands.

We should probably use a tool like PhantomJS or Selenium. And then of course we should have some tests. :)

I'm marking the priority as low at the moment because I think it's not as critical at the moment given everything else going on.

#220 RTL (right-to-left) language support. programming defect 13 years ago
We need RTL (right-to-left) language support in MediaGoblin.

Presumably this requires:

-  Pushing a variable into the general template context specifying
   whether the current language is LTR or RTL
-  Making an RTL stylesheet
-  ... other things?

I'm assigning Osama Khalid to this ticket. Osama, you don't have to
do this necessarily, but at least please give advice on what needs
to be done (you can unassign yourself then if you like).

#591 Default theme handles thumbnails for small pictures poorly graphic design/interface defect 11 years ago

The default theme handles small images poorly. Screenshot: http://pix.toile-libre.org/upload/original/1357821395.png

The title should always be on the bottom to make browsing many pictures in a row easier. The thumbnail should be vertically centered in the remaining space.

#593 Thumbnails of portrait images have inconsistent padding graphic design/interface defect 11 years ago

Thumbnails of portrait images have padding on every side except on top, which makes them look off. Screenshot: http://pix.toile-libre.org/upload/original/1357823610.png

Perhaps adding a separator between the title and the image will fix this, so that the thumbnail will no longer look like it has padding on the bottom.

#720 "file correctly uploaded" bar is misleading graphic design/interface defect 11 years ago

With my new fresh installation of MG I added a sample picture. Then the system said on the green bar "file correctly uploaded" but in the same page there was also written "you haven't already added files"

Screenshot attached. I'm currently testing the dave thompson 421-mysql branch which is up to date with master.

#777 Not possible to edit collection item notes graphic design/interface defect 11 years ago

When adding media to a collection one can add a note. Currently there is no way to edit that note. Clicking "add to collection" on the media and selecting the same collection, one gets a "this media is already in the collection" error message. Instead one should get redirected to a form field, that lets one edit the relationship.

#823 Ugly previews of scaled indexed images programming defect 10 years ago

Previews of images using an indexed color mapping can become very ugly if the original image needs to be scaled down. For example:


This degradation is inherent to scaling indexed images and though the result may vary depending on the scaling algorithm used (NEAREST, BILINEAR, BICUBIC, or ANTIALIAS), scaling will always result in degradation.

Of the file types that Mediagoblin supports, PNG and TIFF files may or may not use indexed color mapping, while GIF files always use indexed colors.

One way to improve the quality of such scaled previews is to convert the image to the RGB color space before scaling.

#82 "safety level"/ or some type of data for (mature) content moderation programming enhancement 13 years ago

#126 sharing and permissions programming enhancement 13 years ago
There is a mapping between the items in your collection and the
individuals allowed to view them. Those are permissions.

We'll begin implementing these by assigning each media entry an
array of authorized viewers, listed by username. Eventually, these
could be openids for federation, but that's beyond the scope of
this ticket.

Because writing a list each time you submit an item would give us
the blues, we'll have a default list editable by the user. That
list of users will be used to populate the permissions array on the

Now, you may not always want the default list, so it's important to
make it easy to specify which of your 10 million fans get to see
your cat with whip cream on its head. For that, each user will be
able to maintain groups of individuals. These groups can be given
any name. Suggestions would be friends, family, etc. Those will be
enabled by default but can be removed in favor of other group

So, when creating an item, you see an array of labels representing
your default sharing profile. It could be as simple as 'everyone',
or as complex as you like. Modify the sharing labels by adding or
removing individual names, or group names. Individuals and groups
can also be added to specifically exclude, but let's save that for
a future ticket.

When you submit the item the labels are interpreted and converted
to individuals for the item's permissions array.

When called upon for viewing, the item looks up the viewer in its
permissions array and allows viewing or coyly stays hidden,
depending on whether the viewer gets to see the item. This should
apply for every view - galleries, thumbnails, etc.

The fun part is that the groups the user maintains may be flagged
as private. This means you don't have to pull your hair out trying
to be political about who gets to be in which group. Chris's
example is great -


    SmoothBro might not show off his "saturday night swingers" group publicly because maybe he doesn't even want people to know about that, esp his parents.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Explore the space!

#162 add quoting support to tagging programming enhancement 13 years ago
Tagging (`#360 </issues/360>`_) needs to be iterated on. This
ticket addresses support for quoting. What are the expected
behaviors? In the following examples, user input is underlined, and
resulting tags are indented.

-  In the simple case (assuming comma-delimited text), the user has
   a single pair of quotes embedded within the input, such as:
   meta,'yo dawg, I heard you like delimiters...',humor


    u'yo dawg, I heard you like delimiters...'


-  what about mixed quotes? (eg user wants *you're* in the tag)
   meme,"I don't even...",humor


    u'I don't even'


-  then, as Will noted in IRC, some users may wish to tag using xml
   or hierarchical organization schemes. At what point does supporting
   quoting become complex enough to warrant using a plugin?

**tl;dr - introduce support for tag delimiter(s) within a tag. Efforts towards native gmg support go here. Add a new ticket for plugin work**

Feel fix this ticket if I'm missing the point or the point is not

#364 Shotwell integration with mediagoblin API programming enhancement 12 years ago
This is obviously somewhat preliminary, as we don't have an API
quite yet as I'm writing this, but...

We certainly want to integrate with all sorts of devices, but
Shotwell would be a fantastic starting point as they're FaiF, come
in near every gnome-oriented distro preinstalled, have similar
goals, and have expressed interest in bundling a mediagoblin

#635 REQUEST: Add a "like" (and maybe dislike) function graphic design/interface enhancement 11 years ago

Like the summary says. It would be neat (and super simple) to have a "like" button (or maybe love/heart/4 or 5 star rating) for all kinds of media.

Or, someone could use this ticket to educate me why this isn't such a good idea, despite so many the big media sharing sites having this feature.

#638 meta-decorator hooks / emacs-lisp style advice programming enhancement 11 years ago

This is an incredibly evil and flexible idea that, like decorators itself, is probably elegant, hard to understand, powerful, and yes, a little bit evil.

So this is an idea inspired from emacs lisp, which allows you to pass in functions to wrap a function that already exists (this is called "advising functions"). Actually, hooks in emacs look a heck of a lot like decorators, so actually...

Say you have this function:

  def some_function(foo):
     bla bla

Now, you want to wrap this function! But how do you wrap it? It's already defined, you can't just wrap arbitrary things around it! ... or can you?

In this meta_decorator_hook, the meta_decorator_hook returns a lazy-loaded method set to actually construct a chain of wrapped methods. So if we did something like:

  pluginapi.wrap_function('some_function_hook', our_function)

.. it would return, basically a WrappedFunction() that, the first time it is executed, walks through all the decorator like methods that have been pushed onto that hook and wraps them in each other. That meta-decorated method is cached, and eventually, executed.

Sounds evil, right? :)

This could be super powerful though. You could do crazy things like double-check the results of a view before returning it, or totally override the view and decide not to call it at all for your plugin, call it both before and after, or set up special-case exception handling for hooks that are called within the function itself.

I'm sure I didn't make that sound any less evil, but I think it'd be really great.

#653 Add capability for embed codes to show media on other websites programming enhancement 11 years ago

I'm looking for the ability to provide my mediagoblin users the ability to copy and paste a snippet of code - a la youtube or vimeo - to display media in another website.

Without having researched it, I'd imagine what would probably be done for video is some sort of iframe? Or alternatively, a javascript snippet with parameters that add the video.js player to the existing page and then includes the video element in its place. I could look at how other video players handle this too.

For images, it's pretty trivial once the infrastructure for configuring and displaying the embed code is in place.

#673 Anonymous Commenting programming enhancement 11 years ago

Directly related to #525 I came across the idea of allowing users to accept anonymous comments on their pages which also led me to the idea of allowing users to moderate what comments can be shown on their page (by letting them approve comments before they are shown).

This required some DB/frontend/backend changes.

My first commit so far has included the ability to comment anonymously. My next goal is the comment moderation ability per-user and then looking at how the system works as a whole and sprucing up as needed.

#696 Version checking against MediaGoblin for plugins programming enhancement 11 years ago

It would be nice if plugins could verify that they're compatible with the running version of MediaGoblin before they're turned on.

#870 new media don't appear directly programming enhancement 10 years ago

after i uploaded a file, i get redirected to my profile and see a success message but i don't see the uploaded media.

if i reload once again, it is there. this shouldn't be necessary.

of course videos need time to get transcoded, but it can display a thumbnail and on the media page a message, that the video transcoding has not finished yet, maybe with progress or link to overview.

#350 Document what "Category" options are documentation task 12 years ago
This is meta; I was wondering if we could get an explanation in the
Redmine wiki as to what the categories refer to. I get
**Documentation**, **Feature idea** and **Graphic design/UI**. I
don't quite understand the difference between **Infrastructure**
and **Programming**.

Per `#699 </issues/699>`_, I would be happy to document that, if
someone explained the last two to me.

#164 Consider cache "table" programming enhancement 13 years ago
Currently, computed (processed) data is stored alongside "original"
data in the database. Most notable example are comments and the
rendered html for them.

There are various reasons for not storing them at the same place:

-  If the options for processing (the created html) changes, a
   migration must be added to convert all existent entries. Or if the
   user changes the options, they have to let every entry be updated.
   Think of large installations! With a cache style setup, one simply
   drops the cache and it will be recreated as needed.
-  It's cleaner layout of the db.
-  Also maybe an option for backup: Many people only want the
   "original" stuff in the backup, as everything else can be
   regenerated as needed.

An alternative is to drop the pre-rendered stuff from the db and
create it "on the fly" as needed.
Or cache it in some (beaker?) memory cache.

#947 Media type configuration options are not documented documentation enhancement 10 years ago

Enabling the various media types is well documented, however no hint is given on how to configure media specific options, e.g. video quality.

There are individual config_spec.ini files scattered around, but there's no mention of where to put those options in mediagoblin_local.ini.

#1051 "Max file size: X mb" should state "MiB", not "mb". graphic design/interface enhancement 9 years ago

First of all, thanks for your awesome work in Mediagoblin.

I know this might sound very picky and even stupid, but stating "MB", in caps, would be wrong, because the real unit used for files is, universally, but commonly misnamed, the mebibyte, MiB.

It's commonly misnamed as "MB" for historical reasons, and even if incorrect, I can understand the resistance to change.

But stating "mb" is wrong in all levels. Mega is "M", not "m" (which could be 'meters'), and "b" means bits, not bytes.

I'm providing a patch to be less annoying in case you feel this is an acceptable change. I hope it's well done, it comes from a "git diff"
