Redaxscript have announcd the release of version 2.1.0 of their powerful platform.
Initially started in 2008 as a fork of sNews CMS, Redaxscript is a free and open source content management system based on PHP scripting language and MySQL database engine. It is almost entirely written using functional programming.
The last release of Redaxscript, back in November 2013, saw a number of enhancements to things like the admin panel, templates and more. With version 2.1.0 though, Redaxscript have taken those enhancements a step further.
Flat Template Style & Vendor Prefixes
Redaxscript have followed up on their work with version 2.0.0 of their platform by continuing to flatten the admin and default templates.
For example, a couple of user interface elements like accordion, dialog and tab have experienced a colour revision. Most partials have also been extended with inline comments and divided into more files to improve readability and speed up workflow.
Furthermore, Redaxscript have endeavoured to get rid of outdated vendor prefixes by parsing CSS files with the Postprocessor named Autoprefixer , a mind blowing tool based on the popular caniuse.com database to determine needed browser support.
As a result, Redaxscript have reported that they have managed to saved around 500 CSS rules in their templates.
Fresh Modules & Native Form Validation
New modules, such as Disqus comments have also been introduced. Once you have installed the new Disqus module, all native comments are automatically replaced where they were enabled.
So, you can now enjoy some enhanced social engagement and traffic to your website as well as improving your SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
Additionally, a new Github module was written to display project milestones and issues on the Redaxscript website. Due to the limited time window for refactoring, the Redaxscript team have made the decision to discontinue their SEO tube module, removing the related download as a result.
Finally, the Redaxscript form validation system now uses the native "checkValidity()" method, which gives specific error messages to highlight required fields. Third party libraries like jQuery, QUnit and Zepto were also updates to their latest versions.
