Since I first started exploring using Grav almost two years ago as an open and collaborative platform for the field of education, I have dreamed of a seamless 2-way sync of Grav site content to such services as GitHub or GitLab. Now, with the great work of the Trilby Media team (the people who created Grav) not only will this possible for myself but also the entire Grav community. By sponsoring the development of the Git Sync Plugin as an open source project I was able to not only support the team behind Grav but also increase the audience for my own Course Hub skeleton package and consultation services about the use of Grav in the education space.
After a month and a half of development, we have completed our Beta phase of Grav 1.1, and are now excited to release Grav 1.1 Release Candidate 1. This is the first release candidate which we will continue to bugfix and improve until we are comfortable to release it into the wild as the new st...
As I previously outlined in the Grav Version 1.1 Coming Soon blog post, there are many great improvements under the covers of the upcoming Grav 1.1 version. We now need your help to test these new features and functionality to ensure they are all working as intended and perform as advertised....
I wanted to take this opportunity to outline what we've been working on the past few months and provide some details on what you can expect in the upcoming releases. Since we released Grav 1.0 and the 1.0 version of the Admin Plugin 4 months ago, we have had 10 point releases. These primarily fo...
After being in beta for just over a year, with nearly 50 releases and 250 closed issues, Grav is now a full featured CMS with all our roadmap tasks completed. We really could of put the Version 1.0 rubber stamp on Grav some time ago, but we decided to hold off until we had the admin plugin stable also. With an extensive beta development phase of it's own, the Grav admin has undergone a series of solid releases to add new functionality and address bugs. It is also on the cusp of getting a stable version number as we have 161 closed issues and no critical bugs currently open.
I know this is the news that a huge majority of Grav users have been waiting for. Yes, you read correctly, the Standard Admin plugin that has been so-long promised, is available for beta testing!
WARNING, WARNING, this is an important WARNING! Please understand this is a beta version, and we cannot 100% guarantee that this plugin will not mess up your data.
This is an HTML user interface that provides a convenient way to configure Grav and easily create and modify pages. This will remain a totally optional plugin, and is not in any way required or needed to use Grav effectively. In fact, the admin provides an intentionally limited view to ensure it remains easy to use and not overwhelming. I'm sure power users will still prefer to work with the configuration files directly.
Today along with Grav 0.9.13 being released, we have made several updates to five of our plugins that could cause your site to break. If you use Breadcrumbs, GitHub, Pagination, SnipCart or TaxonomyList plugins on your Grav site, you need to read this!
If you have been following us on Twitter you will know that along with the general development and improvement of Grav, we have been hard at work on an GUI Admin plugin. We have tweeted several screenshots from our initial design phase and also screenshots of the initial development. Things have been moving along really well and although we are not quite ready to release the plugin into the wild we are about 90% complete.
In this blog post we have provided a veritable slew of screenshots so you can see how things are progressing:
