Software development stage: alpha
A Plone pathbar (breadcrumbs) viewlet implementation with more interactive features.

The sentence "Plone is slow" can open a very big dicussion thread (and is commonly false!). What is often true is this: "Work with Plone UI is slow".

The Plone interface need the user to click many times to do (or repeat) common tasks. This is how the World Wide Web works: click on a link, move to a page, click on another link...

Is clear to all that the presence of Javascript can speed up (sometimes dramatically) the speed of working with CMS.

What SpeedUpUI Pathbar does

The common static breadcrumb viewlet of Plone can be replaced with a new one.

Why work with static and poor-of-features links in the pathbar when we can replace those links with a command interface, to perform directly common operation on the elements inside the pathbar?

So the pathbar will change in a dropdown menu with inside common operation like:

  • View the content (what stardard pathbar viewlet does normally)
  • Edit the content directly
  • Go to folder_contents view of the element
  • Add new content inside the pathbar element, as you are inside the element itself where you can normally use the "Add new ..." menu.
