Another quick one before I head out for my government mandated single bit of exercise outside of my cell.

By popular demand, I’ve converted the Known sitemap.xml generator plugin I wrote some time ago to be installable via composer.

This means you no longer need to faff around with directories, and instead can install it simply with the following command:

composer require mapkyca/known-sitemap

Hopefully this will make it simpler for you!

A heads up to those who are following Known GitHub HEAD!

I’ve just merged a change to Known core that makes a significant change to Known’s *sql core (mysql and Postgres). This change splits the metadata table into one metadata table per collection.

This simplifies the data model, which makes certain stuff easier going forward (import/export, GraphQL APIs etc). It also means we can leverage the DBMS in order to maintain data integrity.

This is a significant change, so it goes without saying that you need to BACK UP YOUR DATABASE BEFORE UPGRADING!

Over the last few months I’ve been working on a couple of Known related developments for a project called reView.

Greg McVerry demoed this plugin (virtually) at the Home-brew Website Club this week, and it apparently was well received.

Still early days, but the project is committed to Open Source, so I’ve just made the repository public.
