Radio Liferay Episode 60: Performance and Permissions with Preston Crary

  An episode on the "Per" things: Performance and Permissions. I spoke to Preston Crary, who amazingly was not mad at me for losing an earlier recording.

We're talking about these (and more) topics

  • We open with the attention to detail that's required for working on performance tuning and some short conversation about this topic.
  • Sadly, there's not often a single silver bullet, but many areas of dust.
  • Sometimes the fastest code is not the most optimal
  • Continuing with Preston's work on Permissions:
  • ResourceBlock is deprecated, and there's an easy migration path
  • The usecase for Resources, ResourcePermission, and ResourceBlocks (as they're not at all visible on the UI)
  • Preston's way through Liferay from Support to working on the topics that he's now working on
  • The new API for Permissions - and the documentation is also done already (as of me writing this article, not yet published, but available on github - should be a matter of days or hours)
  • Should you implement your own permission system? (and how the answer to this question might change in 7.1)
  • Upgrades are being performance tuned. I smell a future episode coming up. Paging the team that is working on this area
  • The remarkable memory savings that refactoring the UserBag introduced
  • What happend during login
  • Passwords are PBKDF2WithHmacSHA1/160/128000 hashed, a deliberately expensive password hashing algorithm.
  • LPS-75747 and an update to my hardball question: Document Library's default.xml is still in core, can't be updated through a module, just through an ext.

Radio Liferay Episode 36: Daniel Sanz on Liferay Translations

  For this episode I spoke with Daniel Sanz. He's a support engineer in the spanish office and is responsible to oversee the translation efforts on Liferay.

We talked about

  • He's the one to keep the pootle instance at translate.liferay.com populated and synchronize changes between pootle and the git repository. This started with some script by Milan Jaros
  • Liferay has some generated translations (with the help of babelfish or bing translate) as well as some copied (english) texts in all the localizations. This needs to be handled, so that pootle does know which (existing) translation still requires manual work.
  • the process of synchronization between pootle and git requires some patches and bugfixes in pootle - an open source, python based product.
  • More complication added by maintaining different branches of Liferay, different plugins (not only portal) and different sources of translations (git, pootle, Jenkins, other contributions).
  • it's hard to keep 100% completion for a translation as new features are constantly added
  • Due to the scripting work, translation can be done either in git or in pootle.
  • Liferay provides translations to roughly 42 (sic!) languages.
  • Shoutout to Daniel Reuther, who has worked hard on the german translation, standing in for me because my vacation came just at the right time - thanks Daniel.
  • History of translations and automatic translations (starting with Yahoo's babelfish, continuing with Bing translator) and if they make sense... (hint: no, with an exception mentioned at the end)
  • \o/ : The pootle import scripts ignore automatic translations. They only appear on the UI when they continue to not be translated.
  • We're evaluating to use other tools than pootle - however, the existing bidirectional scripting makes it hard to choose something different (even updating pootle can be hard)
  • Become part of the Translation Team and communicate on the Translation Forum
