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 53: Nate Cavanaugh - New frontend features in Liferay 7

  I met repeat guest Nate Cavanaugh, Liferay's Director of UI Engineering, at this year's Devcon and he answered all UI-based questions that we could quickly think about - specifically with regards to Liferay 7.

As we recorded this on site at Devcon, you'll hear more background noise than usual - Auphonic did their best to clean the recording, and they did a great job.

Here are some of the topics that we talked about:

  • UI frameworks get out of style soon. Can I still use AngularJS?
  • Do I have to throw everything away that I have invested already?
  • The YUI story and what its discontinuation means for AlloyUI
  • Will AUI be reimplemented on jQuery? Is jQuery part of Liferay 7? What about different versions of jQuery?
  • metal.js
  • Lexicon, UI-Language, User Interface Guidelines
  • Artifacts and Implementation of Lexicon
  • Bootstrap, Bootstrap components, Atlas, the bootstrap versions in Liferay 6.2 and the components of it that are available.
  • What happens when Bootstrap 4 comes out?
  • Single Page Application, SPA, SennaJS: Go without full page reloads, largely by default.
  • New Theming Tools - You can also use new tools in Liferay 6.2 (AYOR though). No more _diffs folder, pure frontend packages, themelets.
  • What kind of themelets do we wish to have?
  • We probably have forgotten something. Ask your questions in the comment section of this episode to be covered in future episodes.
