3. IMPROVEMENTS IN CODING

Orthogonal Component Structure

There are 2 components in this Orthogonal system, which are:

  • Horizontal: commenting, translating, tagging versioning,…
  • Vertical: web links, content, contacts, users,…

This advance makes it possible for every component to take advantage the new capabilities that are used across extensions.

UI components with latest technologies

A component list will be made with the custom elements which are the new W3C standard. To have a nice performance with well-optimized HTML markup, all components have used optimized Javascript and plain, which brings more benefits to developers.

MVC layer improvement

In Joomla 4, duties of a component will be restricted, therefore, the component is going to implement only its own main functionality while the rest is pulled out of the system. This advance makes extensions be cleaner for coding. To simplify as well as extend the functionality when having a multitask/single controller, “Command bus” will be in use by developers.
