the latest version of Pier includes a few experimental features. I
would like to hear your opinion on these:
Before environments were a reference to a different page anywhere on
your page. One idea was to replace this reference with a document
(like the page has one). This allows then to edit the meta-page using
the settings and have it close to the page it is applied to. As
before, keeping it empty would inherit the environment from the
parent. Do you think that improves the usability?
2. Custom Documents
Another idea was that an environment (that is independent of the
proposal above) can add any number of document (formerly called
content widget) widgets. These widgets could then be put for example
into a side-bar or the heading to allow customization of these parts
of the page as part of the edit process of a structure. Again these
'extra' documents can have default documents and/or be inherited from
parent structures. Do you think that would be useful?
Do you think 1 is still useful if we have 2?
I appreciate any thoughts on this. Of course I already made my own
opinion (that you might read between the lines) ...
