    New custon backoffice development

    Hi all,

    According to this, there is a plan in the near future to rebuild the UI of the backoffice:

    I need to build a few custom sections with some bespoke functionality in the backoffice. Is it likely I will have to rebuild them all in the near future if I use the current backoffice UI components?

    If so, I might look into building these sections with regular javascript and custom server side APIs, instead of the Angular 1 UI components.

    Many thanks

    Hi Keith 👋

    The Umbraco UI library of components GitHub repo can be found here

    I believe the frontend UI team are to release them soonish, but in regards to using AngularJS for now and for a little while that will still be the approach. As the new UI project is a BIG project.

    Also I recommend you take a read of the latest RFC here

    Also there is the accepted RFC on the UI library that may be of interest to you as well


    Warren 😀

    Thanks for the info Warren.

    So is this the situation then:

    • there is a project to build a library of framework agnostic UI components which is in progress and will be released in the not-too-distant-future
    • there is another project that will follow later, to update the umbraco backoffice to use the new UI components instead of the current AngularJS components. This will also include a change to how extensions are registered and how the extensions interface with server side code. By the looks of the RFC this is still in the early stages

    Is that right?

    If so, it sounds like if I go ahead and start using the current extension functionality with AngularJS, it will likely be at least a year or so before there is a version of Umbraco that exclusively uses these new components.

    Does that sound about right?

    Thanks again.
