- 4/ ExtJs with GateIn not working
1/ External user authentication for logging in to eXo, like LinkedIn
In this post, a community member asks if it is possible to replicate the login mechanism we use for the community, where you can sign in using your LinkedIn account.
This is actually a great example of how easy it is to extend Platform 4 with community add-ons thanks to the platform’s integration capabilities as well as a great open source community who contribute by adding the things they want.
Of course, the post gives all the steps for replicating the mechanism our internal team implemented, so you can use this feature on your platform as well.
Also, what was a new feature from our community will very soon be adapted as an add-on and will be freely available to the community.
2/ How to make the intranet site faster
In this contribution, the initial poster starts a very interesting discussion about how the platform performs. Another community member joins the discussion and gives a first answer based on his own experience. Different eXoers give possible solutions for improving the launch speed of the platform, and there is information about stress tests run by the QA team on the platform.
All in all, you can get a clear idea of what is being done internally at eXo to improve the performance of Platform 4 as well as some concrete advice to make your own intranet faster.
3/ Simultaneous editing of a wiki page by several users
The author give some very interesting feedback about the wiki and requests a new feature, which could be implemented in future versions, regarding simultaneous editing of the wiki. This kind of post is very important to us as it gives us a clear idea for how we can improve the product and where we want to take it.
4/ ExtJs with GateIn not working
This final contribution is not a post from our community forum but from the famous Q&A: Stack Overflow. A user asked a very technical question about ExtJs integration. An answer was provided by another community member, who gave a possible solution to the initial problem.
