I won't discuss all of the details of why I thought I might need a Global Channel Hook here, instead I'll post a description of it to the Plugins forum (real soon, I promise
) where it really belongs.
I will state that yes my perceived Global Channel Hook need
would basically insert/update a database that would get processed later by an Application Plugin, and admittedly, 1) it may be more of a vertical application
that many people might not be interested in, and 2) due to the large file size of the third-party libraries involved and their licenses, it might be hard/impossible to completely distribute it to users via Awasu's wiki; they might have to download and manually install portions of it themselves from the third-parties' libraries web site(s), so installation could be a little cumbersome.
But thanks to Awasu's versatility (in this case Channel Reports using the MetaChannel.template
) I do have an alternative way of achieving the same end result without a Global Channel Hook. So if I can't "zig
" I usually find a way to "zag
", and thankfully Awasu offers a "zag
" in this scenario. If fact, I think the "zag" solution might actually be better than the original "zig" solution.
I'll move forward with it for myself, and if you guys think that it has some merit and the installation can be simplified, then Awasu wiki here it comes.
