Alfresco’s Aikau framework and configuration properties

menuHeaderTitleSince the release 4.2 Community Edition, the Alfresco’s Aikau framework has been introduced as a brand new method of creating new Surf Pages or Components for the so called Alfresco Share client. Since then, some exciting tutorials and examples have been developed (Ole Hejlskov’s tutorial is one of the most complete, in my personal opinion) and I also enjoyed with the development of the A.A.A.R. menu for Alfresco Share, available in this GitHub project and downloadable here.

In this post I would like to share my experience using the Alfresco’s configuration parameters directly into the Aikau framework to customize and control the widgets. In this particular case creating a structured menu item into the header of Alfresco Share, but this approach could be used in every javascript code developed using the Alfresco’s Aikau framework.

A.A.A.R. menu into the Alfresco header

Thank to the brand new Aikau framework in Alfresco, it has been possible to easy develop the A.A.A.R. menu directly into the Alfresco Share interface. The A.A.A.R. Alfresco menu module is tested on Alfresco 4.2.x and 5.0.x versions and it’s quite interesting to see a practical example and a useful application to a real scenario. Oh, I was forgetting… this menu is completely customizable using the share-config-custom configuration and can access to all the analytics of your A.A.A.R. installation.

You can download the AMP package here on SourceForge or take a look to the full documentation here in this page.

Last but not least, many thanks to Ole Hejlskov (https://github.com/ohej) for his great work on the tutorial about Aikau framework. And to Gabriele Columbro (http://mindthegab.com/) for his work on the Alfresco SDK and, of course, for sharing documentation about it.
