<a name="l-24"></a><span class="tm">07:44:07</span><span class="nk"> &lt;fmarier&gt;</span> <span class="hi">anitsirk:</span> drinking in the office? ;-)
<a name="l-25"></a><span class="tm">07:44:13</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anitsirk&gt;</span> nope. i'm at home

<a name="l-27"></a><span class="tm">07:44:38</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anitsirk&gt;</span> :-)
<a name="l-28"></a><span class="tm">07:45:02</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> So with the triggers, I just wanted to mention that we have a function to create db triggers, should anyone need them
<a name="l-29"></a><span class="tm">07:45:18</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> Thanks to rkabalin_'s review :)
<a name="l-30"></a><span class="tm">07:45:22</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anitsirk&gt;</span> <span class="cmd">#info </span><span class="cmdline">mahara has a function to create db triggers if needed</span>
<a name="l-31"></a><span class="tm">07:46:02</span><span class="nk"> &lt;fmarier&gt;</span> <span class="hi">richardm:</span> what sort of things do you expect triggers will be useful for?
<a name="l-32"></a><span class="tm">07:46:12</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> I guess I don't need to say much more, if you feel like you need to use them, read the function in lib/dml.php
<a name="l-33"></a><span class="tm">07:46:22</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> but for our case
<a name="l-34"></a><span class="tm">07:47:01</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> after a ton of toing &amp; froing we decided to cache counts of unread notifications in the user table
<a name="l-35"></a><span class="tm">07:47:22</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> (because reading the notification_internal_activity was generating tons of slow queries)
<a name="l-36"></a><span class="tm">07:48:19</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> so i guess it's useful when a db field's value is completely determined by some other thing in the db
<a name="l-37"></a><span class="tm">07:49:00</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> i'm not aware of anything else we should use them for yet, but people should know they're there
<a name="l-38"></a><span class="tm">07:49:01</span><span class="nk"> &lt;rkabalin_&gt;</span> How do we upgrade if trigger needs to be changed
<a name="l-39"></a><span class="tm">07:49:03</span><span class="nk"> &lt;rkabalin_&gt;</span> ?
<a name="l-40"></a><span class="tm">07:49:03</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> ..
<a name="l-41"></a><span class="tm">07:49:11</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> drop &amp; recreate
<a name="l-42"></a><span class="tm">07:49:38</span><span class="nk"> &lt;rkabalin_&gt;</span> OK, that is how I expected
<a name="l-43"></a><span class="tm">07:50:09</span><span class="nk"> &lt;rkabalin_&gt;</span> ..

<a name="l-45"></a><span class="tm">07:50:15</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> so there's a db_drop_trigger function which is not used anywhere yet

<a name="l-75"></a><span class="tm">07:57:20</span><span class="nk"> &lt;rkabalin_&gt;</span> I think we should keep Dwoo, as it entirely meets our requirements at the moment and maintain it as a part of Mahara. If someone wants to use it separately, that person could easily do that
<a name="l-76"></a><span class="tm">07:57:36</span><span class="nk"> &lt;fmarier&gt;</span> ok, well, i don't have much more to say on this topic. we don't have an immediate action to take on this, but i just wanted to throw it out there

<a name="l-78"></a><span class="tm">07:58:24</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anitsirk&gt;</span> do we have to action something right away or would something have to go on to the more long term todo list?
<a name="l-79"></a><span class="tm">07:58:50</span><span class="nk"> &lt;fmarier&gt;</span> i think rkabalin_'s suggestion of doing nothing until we have a good reason to switch is fine
<a name="l-80"></a><span class="tm">07:59:00</span><span class="nk"> &lt;elky&gt;</span> review the situation at the beginning of each cycle, probably
<a name="l-81"></a><span class="tm">07:59:10</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> I think I found it:

<a name="l-84"></a><span class="tm">07:59:39</span><span class="nk"> &lt;fmarier&gt;</span> symfony is a whole framework i think
<a name="l-85"></a><span class="tm">07:59:41</span><span class="nk"> &lt;richardm&gt;</span> ah yeah symfony, that's the one
<a name="l-86"></a><span class="tm">07:59:47</span><span class="nk"> &lt;rkabalin_&gt;</span> sumfony is MVC framework, not just a templating thingy
<a name="l-87"></a><span class="tm">07:59:50</span><span class="nk"> &lt;elky&gt;</span> that's more than a templating engine by the looks
<a name="l-88"></a><span class="tm">07:59:55</span><span class="nk"> &lt;dobedobedoh&gt;</span> symfony is a whole framework
<a name="l-89"></a><span class="tm">07:59:58</span><span class="nk"> &lt;fmarier&gt;</span> yeah, that would be a massive rewrite of mahara :)
<a name="l-90"></a><span class="tm">08:00:01</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anitsirk&gt;</span> do you agree on what rkabalin_ suggested and fmarier summarized?
<a name="l-91"></a><span class="tm">08:00:03</span><span class="nk"> &lt;dobedobedoh&gt;</span> (It's quite nice to use)

<a name="l-95"></a><span class="tm">08:00:30</span><span class="nk"> &lt;Mjollnir`&gt;</span> it's twig that he switched to
<a name="l-96"></a><span class="tm">08:00:53</span><span class="nk"> &lt;Mjollnir`&gt;</span> it's included in symfony but it's also a standalone templating system
<a name="l-97"></a><span class="tm">08:00:54</span><span class="nk"> &lt;dobedobedoh&gt;</span> <span class="hi">Mjollnir`:</span> any idea what the reason for the switch is?
<a name="l-98"></a><span class="tm">08:01:21</span><span class="nk"> &lt;Mjollnir`&gt;</span> i guess he got involved in symfony for other reasons anyway

<a name="l-104"></a><span class="tm">08:02:03</span><span class="nk"> &lt;dobedobedoh&gt;</span> Looks like it wouldn't be to much of a switch, and hopefully it would be maintained if it's being used with symfony
<a name="l-105"></a><span class="tm">08:02:20</span><span class="nk"> &lt;Mjollnir`&gt;</span> but moving from smarty to dwoo we didn't change any templates really. otoh we didn't really take advantage of using dwoo over smarty for that reason ...
<a name="l-106"></a><span class="tm">08:02:45</span><span class="nk"> &lt;fmarier&gt;</span> yeah the only advantage we got out of using dwoo was the auto-escaping
