Redmine–Permissions and Security

by Alex Bevilacqua | March 2014 | Open Source

Our knowledgebase plugin adds extra content to Redmine projects in the form of categories and articles. These new content areas may contain sensitive information, which we would want to restrict certain users from accessing.

As there are different levels of users in Redmine for issue reporting and management, it is only natural that we would want to restrict access to the content in our knowledgebase plugin in a similar fashion.

In this article, written by Alex Bevilacqua the author of Redmine Plugin Extension and Development, you will be introduced to Redmine's permission system. You will learn how you can take advantage of it to restrict access to content areas within our plugin.

We will cover the following topics in this article:

  • Summarizing Redmine's permissions system

Remote Installation and Managing User Profiles using Joomla!

by Beatrice A. Boateng Kwasi Boateng | July 2010 | Moodle Open Source

We need to migrate our site to a remote server, in order to make our site live for further development. This is absolutely important because we intend to integrate our site with existing social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and this cannot be done in a local environment. Those of us wanting to continue development locally can continue to do so, especially if we do not have a registered domain name and hosting account. We can use the backup process in this article to migrate our site when we are ready to go live.

In this article,by Beatrice A. Boateng and Kwasi Boateng, author of Joomla! Social Networking with JomSocial we will learn how to:

  • Migrate the site from a local machine to a remote server by:

    • Editing user profiles

Remotely Preview and test mobile web pages on actual devices with Adobe Edge Inspect

by Joseph Khan | March 2013 | Web Development

Mobile web testing is currently a really time consuming and cumbersome process as there are no direct debugging tools available with mobile web browsers. Since mobile devices vary so much it is important to ensure that your web page looks as intended across the multiple mobile devices that you are targeting for your audience. Adobe Edge Inspect is a perfect tool for frontend web developers and designers who are developing for mobile devices, allowing them to simultaneously test on numerous devices in real time as they develop without learning anything new.

With Adobe Edge Inspect you can pair multiple mobile devices with your computer and browse in Google Chrome on your computer and all the paired mobile devices stay in sync. This means that any page you open in Chrome either from your local HTTP web server (via localhost) or a production server, that same page is opened synchronously in all the paired mobile devices. After that you can target any mobile device for inspection and start remote testing, make changes to the HTML markup, CSS style rules, and JavaScript, and instantly see the changes in the targeted mobile devices.

In this article by Joseph Khan, author of Instant Adobe Edge Inspect Starter, we will talk on the most important feature of Adobe Edge Inspect, that is, how we can remotely preview, inspect, and debug a mobile web page. So let's get started.
