Looking for some open discussion here. Farcry is very clear about includedObj.
DEPRECATED; Included objects are essentially chunks of code that have nowhere else to go. For example, if you are porting ColdFusion code from another application, or trying to integrate another framework this is a likely location to place a controller or the code itself. If you’re building a pure FarCry application you should hesitate before using included objects. There is a better alternative; use type webskins instead.
However, it is still supported. So my question / discussion topic is around those “little chunks of code” that are meant to be modular, and reusable when building a site. They are not content objects, they are not page templates, just helpers we use for flexibility in the life of a site.
I would like to discuss the following.
- If includedObj is “deprecated”, what is the roadmap for its removal?
- What are alternative methods to includedObjs? Particularly the “chunks of code”.
- What is the preferred method for creating modular / reusable “chunks of code” in FarCry?
We can plan all we want, but there always seems to be a need for something beyond the breath of a template, and the bucket of a content type. So what, and how is the proper method to design and build for it.
thanks so much community. Looking for some good discussion on how folks build things.
